Someone else suggested a contrast yarn woven back and forth and while I'd like to try that at some point, I don't believe it will work with Max. He's very particular about what he will and won't allow around here. (Max is the cat that once grabbed a paper knitting chart and ran off down the hall with it streaming behind him. He's interesting.) He will occasionally "help" with yarn management for either my knitting or crochet and contrast colors of scrap yarn are just asking for kitten intervention.
I'm almost finished with the bobble cowl I showed you yesterday, so this will be my last project for Loopy Academy. I've just about decided not to do the sewing version of Loopy Academy this fall. I feel like there are other things I need to do and I don't need the added stress. I haven't quite ruled it out, but I'm leaning that way.
