When we recently bought new curtain panels, I saved the bags from the curtain packaging: at first, in case I wanted to return them, but as we decided that we liked the curtains, I still held on to them. Don’t ask me why… they just seemed like they could be useful somehow, a nice size with a zipper and built-in hanger.
Recently I started knitting another scarf, but I ran into a storage problem. At night, I needed a way to keep my work-in-progress safe from the cats. From their claws, mostly, but also for their safety, too. Just like my re-purposed food containers that now keep threads, pins, and other small dangerous items out of paws’ reach, I needed some cat-proof storage to keep my project in one place.
Eureka! This scarf is safe!
