Does he look innocent to you? I have been crocheting a bright hunter orange scarf for when I go hunting. I admit it is kind of an ugly color for a scarf, but I will really appreciate it this fall when we are hunting. I have to be very careful to keep my scarf up where Max can't find it, because if he sees it, he tries to get it. And while I am crocheting on the couch, he stares at it longingly while I am working on it. If I don't pay attention, he jumps up and tries to snag it from me. I had some left over yarn that I rolled into a ball and gave it to Max to play with. He had a lot of fun with it for a while.
Max is almost blind. So I wonder if the color of the yarn is part of the appeal for him.
