My grandmother's favourite story about their adult family cat was about a knitting set which was "kidnapped" and the thread wound around several chair and table legs.
I think it very much depends on the individual character of the cat, but wouldn't trust an unattended knitting set if the cat us not very mellow :-)
@unixwitch oh noooo
I have had cats accidentally take some knitting with them and wind it around the living room, usually followed by me saying "nonono, stop so I can get that yarn unhooked from your leg"!
