Nothing beats looking at images of cute animals, and these fluffy critters have the added bonus of being little crochet and knitting ‘helpers’ – so long as by ‘help’ you mean batting at the yarn balls, stealing amigurumi legs and sitting right on your latest project! They’re all super cute, though, so you can’t stay mad for long.
If you’ve got your own little craft helper, you’ll definitely find these photos relatable and hilarious, and probably have some adorable stories of your own – why not share them on our Crochet Club magazine Facebook and Twitter, for a chance to appear in the next issue? For now, let’s sit back and enjoy these precious images of cute animals…
This snoozy pup has clearly exhausted himself watching his mum knit that luxurious giant blanket (it takes a lot of effort just sitting there watching someone else do all the work, after all!) and has snuggled up for a lovely cuddle. It’s enough to make you feel jealous.
If you suddenly feel your tension getting tight, it might be because this little monster has attacked your yarn ball! Cats love chasing things that move like prey so, of course, they love the little twitches of your yarn as you work – both very annoying and very cute!
Someone help, the yarn balls are escaping! Oh wait, those are just little grey kittens. Aren’t they sweet with their tiny tails and ears? They blend in perfectly with the grey yarn balls too, making them easy to steal away in a basket of yarn… Just kidding!
Oh no, doesn’t all that tangled yarn make you cringe? At least this adorable pooch looks like he’s feeling guilty after getting into his mum’s yarn stash. Plus, who can stay mad with those big, pleading eyes? Must… not… give… treat…
Doesn’t this kitty look elated at discovering that lovely collection of yarn balls? It’s a feeling we all can relate to in the craft store!
When you have little pups as cute as this, of course you’re going to spoil them with sweet knit and crochet accessories. They’re barely a few weeks old and have their own fashionable matching set of scarves and hats, ready for winter.
Freeze! You’ve been caught red-handed, mister. Just look at this little mischief-maker’s startled face after knocking over that basket. Time for you to go to kitten prison (aka his mum’s arms, being covered in kisses that he probably hates).
Cats really do get into the weirdest places, don’t they? This sweet moggy has somehow climbed into a pile of knitwear to peek out the other side. At least it’s cosy in there and, hopefully, there won’t be any claw holes in the material.
Sure, she might be sleeping on your latest project, but when your kitten is this cute you absolutely cannot disturb her. You’ll just have to get on with the boring chores you were putting off instead!
