Ferocious monster

Sunday afternoon I was skeining sock yarn (I so need an electric skeiner!!!!) and reading Spin-Off (the last issue, as recommended by Laura) (skeining is dreadfully dull, and requires little attention, so I can read while doing it. Even books with no pictures, not just magazines.) (Did I mention that I need an electric skeiner??) when suddenly everything just… stopped.

I looked down, and the yarn was firmly clamped in Morgan’s jaws. As soon as I noticed him, Morgan began purring at full volume. You’ll notice that purring doesn’t involve opening the jaws.

I did get the yarn away from him, and distracted him with a paper ball, but it’s a good thing that yarn gets washed before going in the dyepot.

Edit: Since this is still the top Google result for “ferocious monster” (as of November 2011), I thought a picture was in order.

    P.S. summer 2007 issue–self striping socks! It made me hanker for variegated roving, and that was before you just posted all the stockinged feet pictures.
