In the winter, I spend much of my free time knitting. As you can imagine, the cats are utterly entranced by the yarn. Melly also likes the blocking process. To block a scarf, I stretch it out on the ironing board, spray it until it's damp, and pin it down all along the edges. To protect the damp scarf from certain curious felines and their constant shedding, I throw a towel over it. Melly doesn't mind the pin heads that stick up from the board, and just plops herself down on it.
