I have a 5 y/o and a 7 y/o. I know enough to know that if I leave something out, it will be touched.
I have two cats... I know enough that yarn/wool and cats equals cat heaven.
I keep my WIP's and Needles in a large old suitcase/trunk.
to knit socks. As a treat to celebrate me knitting my very first pair of socks for myself
(not my first pair of socks) I splurged on Rosewood needles.
Last night I finished my first sock for myself.
I carefully packed everything away.
This morning I went to cast on my next sock. To find only 2 of 5 needles.
I tore my suitcase apart.
... I called my kids.
No one admitted it, but a search of their rooms turned up 6 halves of Rosewood knitting needles.
My kids are going to be lucky to have any fun for a month!!! Of course, neither will Mamma!
Err, and I told my DH, but as I earned the money babysitting and fudged on the cost of the knitting needles...
when I'll be able to get me another set of needles. I'll likely have to frog my first sock and reknit it on a set of needles I own already.
