Cuddles and Crochet

Fa la la la….Oh hey, there! Sorry, just taking in the sweet bliss that is Christmas break. This of course means a break from school and now dedicating most of my day to catching up on all of the junk I haven’t had time for in the past 4 months. It also means that Christmas is.. wait for it.. less than a week away and I have WAY too much to get done. So in the spirit of being overwhelmed and having completely neglected this blog in almost 2 weeks, I’ll grace your day with a short, fluffy and cuddly post.

Ever found a skein of yarn has mysteriously popped out from its place? Find a ball of yarn plucked and pulled across the room? Do you have a cat? As cliché as a cat playing with a ball of yarn is, I can’t help but warm up inside every time my calico kitty paws at the yarn I’m working with.  As much as I want to shoo her off the bed and stop grabbing at the colorful strand that is more enticing than catnip, I let her play because it’s too darn cute.  I also always find that a yarn ball seems to come loose from its shelf and somehow gets strewn around my room.  My sister’s dachshund is another unbelievably cute story.  Midge is the biggest cuddle bug among cuddlers to the point that it’s stupid. She always has to be next to someone… So it never surprises me when I’m working on a project and she jumps up next to me, looks me in the eyes and seems to say, “Hello, I’m here to be your warming pad on this chilly Winter day! Get ready to snuggle.” And then she proceeds to push my yarn out of my lap with her nose and plop down in its place.  Yesterday I sat down to bang out a chunk of my Christmas gifts for the family and she found her spot in the midst of all the (cheap Red Heart *don’t judge me, I’m trying to use it up*) yarn I had on the couch with me.

So here are some photos.  As annoying as my animals can be while tugging the yarn out of my hands, they’re too adorable to keep to myself.  And really.. Is there anything better than snuggling up with your furry friend and relaxing? I didn’t think so.

Caught in the act of pulling yarn from its nook..

Keeping me company while I make coffee mug cozies. Bored to death obv.

  1. Hi Jenna,
    Your cat and dog pics are so cute! I’ve got a Cavalier spaniel who puts his head on my lap while I’m knitting and starts gently snoring.
    I so impressed by your neat yarn stash in those storage cubes…mine is not as gorgeous in plastic tubs…but they do keep moths out (I live in the country and they’re rampant here!). I’m from Tasmania & found your blog via The Shy Lion & House of Humble.

    • Thanks for dropping by and commenting! I don’t know what it is but crocheting and knitting seem to put animals into a trance haha and I’m actually working on a post about organizing my crafting goodies so the small shelf I have my yarn in is fairly new. I was considering plastic tubs but I like to have my yarn as a colorful display =)

  2. Awww, this is so cute! As far as I’m concerned there is NOTHING better than cuddles and crochet! Our kitty, Poppy is the same as yours. She nest in our baskets of yarn, chases balls of yarn across the floor and paws at our work while we crochet. It makes things difficult but is so sweet, we never have the heart to stop her!

    Katie x
