I love you kitty, but…

Have you ever had any of your FO’s ruined by a pet?

My mother in law keeps making fun of me saying that I just love the knitting/crocheting process, but I don’t care what’s the outcome, since she’s never seen me wearing anything that I’ve made for myself.

Well, that could be true, but I have a better explanation for it: my cat is a monster. 🙂

In the 2 years that she’s been living with us she has ruined a cardi, my Manos Urchin, a huge amount of blythe hats and now… this

Yep, that’s the Kauno Ishbel that I had knitted a while ago and finally wanted to block in order to prove my in law wrong.  I swear I left the cat alone in the same room with the shawl for not longer than 15 seconds and this was the outcome ;( and not happy with the result she started rubbing her head and back on it leaving it covered with white hair.

As you can notice, she still managed to look totally adorable while doing so O.O


You can’t really be pissed at animals for ruining something, I guess, still I have been disappointed the whole day after it happened 😦 I don’t know if it can be fixed but I guess not. Once more, hours of knitting have gone to waste.

Can anyone relate to that? Tips? Experiences?

I’d love to hear your stories!

  1. OH NO, DON’T THROW IT AWAY! OR FROG IT! This can be fixed! All you have to do is thread the cut end of yarn through a tapestry needle and weave it around all the dropped stitches to keep them from unraveling and then you just tie a small knot to the other end of the cut part. If a large part has been taken out or is missing, you may need to add a new section of yarn into the garment. I know it sounds difficult, but it’s really not once you see what you are doing. I do this all the time. Especially with expensive sweaters from department stores that have been messed up so they are put on sale for crazy cheap prices. I really hope you can fix your lovely shawl.
