Ok. Here's what happened today. I took Pink Panther into my yarn stash room, so I could pick out the best pink to add. I was going though my yarns, and when I turned around, Max, my monster cat was chewing on the ends of the needles.
I'm going to Hobby Lobby tomorrow to replace them. There's no way the yarn is going to slide smoothly over those teeth marks. I hope you can all forgive my rotten boy.
