Okay, I love soft yarn. Soft, cuddly, beautiful, snuggable yarn.

We have two cats for petting. They are both snuggle pusses so they get plenty of petting. Thankfully I have never tried to knit with them although they often "help" me with my knitting.

I used to just pet and then sniff them. Lately I've started calling them pet names and sweet-talking them: "Hello darling. Yes, you're pretty, aren't you." When it's really cuddly, sqishable yarn, I just need to smoosh it. I have to squeeze it really tight too or three times in both my hands and watch it bounce back, then exclaim over it, and smoosh it some more. Then I drool a little bit, I swear. There is definite salivation.

Good grief! Robinstephanie, Tell me you don't actually dribble on it?
Next time you are admiring wool*, there is a test you can do to see how well balanced you are. When you start drooling, notice if you are drooling out of both sides of your mouth. A friend recently told me "She is so well balanced she can dribble out of both sides of her mouth at once"

* Meaning any sort of yarn

BBbbaaaaaa HAHAHAHAHAH! Grand-Moogi you crack me up.

No drool actually leaves my mouth when smooshing yarn.

Yet.

I will keep your test in mind should it become needful.
