My dog Coco pulled my yarn off the table and started pulling it out to do her own crochet. Every day she finds a ball of yarn from my collection laying out where she can get it.

Be careful that she doesn’t eat any yarn. Dogs and cats sometimes end up in emergency care because the yarn tangles up their intestines.

I think I would work extra hard to keep her out of my yarn.

I keep my yarn projects in big ziplock baggies. With cats in the house, this is a necessity!

Coco's project looks much like Dixie's knit work. Dixie is rough on needles too if she gets hold of them. She prefers any yarn label. She does not chew the yarn.

Couldn’t have been the dog, I’m sure a wind came up, trapped the yarn and tangled it.

She likes yarn 'bark' instead of barf

Exactly what happened to my cat. Believe me, you don't want to know the cost of that operation.

Coco is pretty smart, but, best to put yarn away in a safe, can't get into, kind of container. I walked away from my knitting for only one minute--turned around, and Sammy kitty had a small ball of yarn in his mouth. Fortunately, their was a long tail (on the yarn) and I was able to pull it out of his mouth. These things happen, but, l almost learned the hard way.

Please be sure to put your projects where Coco can no longer get herself tangled up or chew on the yarn. Take care. Scary moment--we know.

I feel for you!!!!I just did the same thing last night!
Doberman stole hank of Angora yarn (he searches for yarn) and killed it.
Luckily he didn't shred it. Spent couple of hours in bed listening movie and undoing the mess.

I can't leave knitting anywhere for Lenny (avatar) to get. He's not picky-will chew needles or yarn. Of course he's only 7 mo. old. And very hard-headed & stubborn!
