When I'm spinning Bend likes to sit near the leather straps and watch. It is like cat TV for him. Sometimes he gets smacked in the face with the peddles or the leather straps. Doesn't seem to bother him though - he still likes to watch it!
I'm a knitter and a lover of all fiber arts. Could there be enough time in the day to design and knit everything you want?? I keep busy by being outside, getting into trouble, and being a general good pain in the ass!
