Your cat story is very familiar. I have two dogs and when they were puppies, they got into my yarn too. Nothing worse than walking into a room to find a ball spread all over the floor.

I'm glad your shawl survived your kitten. I have a new puppy and I have very similar experiences lately. Audry's book looks like a real treasure. I've been eyeing it up for a while now. I think the Sail to Treasure Island Blanket might make a lovely wedding gift.

Would love to win that book as much as I love your pod. Ravid: Ridderstolpe. Thanks!

Katherine DaSilva said...

I can relate to the story of your kitten attacking your shawl. We have a cat who has a thing for my yarns. But she seems to like whatever yarn is IN my knitting bag. No matter where I put it if there is a way for her to get to it she will. So be warned, your knitting is not safe just because it is put away in your bag. Aubry's book is beautiful and I'm so impressed that she did it all herself. I would love to have a copy of it. Love listening to your podcast. Can't wait for your new book to come out.
