Well, I have read about your cats and your knitting. The dogs in your lap, etc. I bought a Roomba, the robot vacuum cleaner at the end of December. Best invention ever. I waited until I took my tree down before scheduling it to run at night while I slept. I generally make sure there is nothing it can get in trouble with while it vacuums. This morning, my husband comes in the bedroom and says, "oh, we have a problem. Rosie, our Roomba, got into your knitting". I come out of the bedroom, and there she is, stuck. My knitting bag is in the middle of the living room floor, a ball of yarn laying between the living room and breakfast room, yarn tangled around the breakfast table, attached to Rosie. I turn her over and what a mess. Yarn tangled throughout the bottom in all the wheels and rollers. Fortunately, it wasn't hard to untangle but I just had to laugh. Guess I will be picking up that knitting bag at night now.
Delightful story! Rose is like a pet!
Sorry, it the picture you paint gave me the biggest laugh I've had in a long time, just visualizing the whole picture! Poor Rosie! POOR YOU!
I received a roomba 650 for Christmas. So far it hasn't gotten into anything. I will remember to pick up my knitting. I run mine in the late morning. Love it.
Arghhh, what a mess. Haven't used mine for years since I found out how expensive a new battery was. Hated how long it took to get the job done, best to let it go when you aren't staying around. They are cheaper now, perhaps I'll indulge again.
I've wondered how effective those things are. I would hate to have "her" get into my knitting, but the upside of cleaning for me might be worth it.
Enjoyed your amusing version of this event.
Oh dear! How much is a new battery?
I wouldn't be without my Rosie. Thanks for the visual. I will be sure to pick up
my knitting bag. I replaced the battery last year, it was around $ 80 but it has given me good service. I love how it cleans under the bed.
I had to admit it was funny too! Thank goodness I had no WIP that it ripped out. I have a long hair dog and a husband with lung problems so I really love the Roomba. Recently, pulled muscle in bag so no need to drag out the big vacuum.
I also anthropomorphize my Roomba.... When he gets himself locked in the bath room, I find him and sympathize. It is hard not to talk to them!!! Haha. The wool thing would be messy, but try soft cat food that was in a flat saucer...... Good thing I caught him before he spread it all over the house!
Batteries can be as much as 1/2 off online but WHO does the repairs? Need help there with my old friend.
I put it in a room, close that door, and sit down to read or knit. I don't care how log it takes/
