We had an amazing cat. He was an international traveler, a jelly-belly, and our pride and joy. When he died I realized how much I had missed by shooing him away while knitting. In honor of Figment, I instituted “Figgy’s Law” which states that any animal who comes to me for luvin’s wins out over knitting. Sometimes I feel that my current menagerie takes advantage of Figgy’s Law to the extent that they are in league against me. I can see them thinking, “How dare she pet the dregs of a sheep (or alpaca or what have you) instead of petting me?!” They gang up on me especially when I’m under a deadline. And therefore, I give you The Anti-Knitting League. My animals vs. my knitting.
