Spit Split February 2, 2010

You know the term spit splice? The method of joining two ends of a wool yarn together by wetting them and rubbing between your palms? This is the opposite of that, and it happens every time I leave my project on a desk or couch and my knitting bag on the floor.

Yep. It can only be called a spit split. Now, who could have done this? Looking closely at the photo, you can see a subtle clue- fine, long, grayish brown hairs. Hmm, now let me think. Let’s have a look at the suspects, shall we?

Awwwwww. Certainly not him. Far too innocent; plus, his fur is completely unlike our sample.

AHA. Long, grey-brown fur, check; mischievous look in her eye, check; previously established taste for yarn, especially alpaca sock yarn, DOUBLE CHECK.

Bad kitty.

    Junie cat has chewed my new sock yarn (also Knitpicks Imagination) twice now…she must like the taste of goat hair too.

    Maybe you could teach her to do the splice after she enjoys her snack?

    Alpaca seems to be especially tasty to the felions. I feel your pain. Really. Been there.
