I wish someone would come up with a way to clean up all those little bits and pieces of yarn that decorate my carpets![:00]

Mine also get on the dogs because they insist on laying at my feet. You think they would learn.

Wouldn't it be nice to have one of those robotic discs that just roll around and vacuum your floor? I would have to keep my yarn-in-use off the floor, though, cuz if would probably grab that.

^funny you should mention that, most of my knitting has ME HAIR in it, because I have this super fine heair that sheds like mad, all the time, so it occasionally gets wound up in my knitting. I just tell people they are gettting pieces of me.

It's been six months, but I'm back in the knitting game!

How funny knittingkeri... I thought I was the only one giving a bit of myself in my knitting.
My hair is also getting into mine as well.

Hair in knitting: It's a little more bit of love in every stitch! LOL

Would someone like to design little duct-tape booties (sticky side out, of course) that we could have our cats and dogs wear? They'd pick up all of those little yarn bits in no time.

Good idea until they jump into your arms and rip the hair off!

There has to be something sticky that will help with this! My husband thinks I'm dangerous (occassionaly I've dropped a needle or two) not to mention messy.

I'd like to be around when you attempt to put on the duct tape booties onto a cat.

I saw on line a thing just like the tape lint remover tool, except it came with a long pole so that you could pick up lint like things on the carpet. Does anyone remember the name for it?

I think the answer is multicolored shag carpet. You'll just be adding to the durability every time a snippet falls.

I thought I was the only one to get my hair stuck in my knitting! My hair used to be super long (until I lopped it this week). Hopefully my hair won't end up in the kntting as much now!

Happy knitting or knit 'til you're happy! - tiennie

Wasn't it long golden hair caught in the spinning wheel that Rumpelstiltskin used to turn the straw into gold?
