It’s A Good Things Cats Have Nine Lives

This morning, I awoke rather drearily, stuffed my knitting in my bag, and headed off to work.  After a slightly busy morning, I decided to take my morning break.  I grabbed a cup of water, a croissant, and my WIP, and sat down at the counter to continue the monotonous background of reverse stockinette stitch.  However, when I looked down at my knitting, I discovered this:

That’s right – a big gaping hole!!  My cat had chewed through the fiber in the middle of the night, when it was laying innocently on the chair and I was sleeping soundly in the other room.  I don’t get it, I’ve left yarn projects all over the house before and the only thing that cat has done is cuddled up next to them.  Or, if I leave something blocking, systematically pull out the pins and scattering them all over the table.  But this – this is pure carnage!  This cat is so lucky she’s cute!  And really, I think it’s only that it’s Ella Rae Classic, because when I arrived home from work, I found this:

Yeah, across 3 rooms and around a couple of table legs.  I muttered something about skinning the cat and using her fur for yarn as I wound the ball – of Ella Rae.  It has to be Ella Rae because there were 2 knitted items strewn across the couches in the living room (where this innocent ball was resting), and 2 knitted vests in the dining room (where this ball ended up), along with a ball o Debbie Bliss, and a bag of yarn in the studio (in which the table was standing that ended up tangled in yarn).

So, now comes the moment when you ask yourself what saved this guilty, troublesome kitten?

Well, I received a package today, that looked like this:

Cascade 128 Superwash – 13 skeins!

And, at work today, an appreciative customer gave me a gift:

A hand pull Pavoni Espresso Machine.

So, if you’ll excuse me.  I’m going to make myself a drink and unwind by winding balls of yarn.
