Oh What A Tangled Web We Weave....
when we carelessly stash our yarn... This is what happens when you leave an unattended tub of yarn in a room with kids...I salvaged what I could but after much frustration ripped the yarn from the skeins/balls and threw away the tangled mess.

My four dachshunds did the same thing to me years ago, tho they also ran it through the living room around the coffe table and the side tables.

Yeah, most of it was...And I truly wasn't too saddened by the loss considering I bought most of that yarn when I first began knitting a few years ago...I thought the "fur" yarn looked so fun! Now I know better

I didn't have that problem with my kids...they knew better than touch anything that didn't belong to them or have permission to touch...now if I could only train my cats that way, but for some reason they just look at me like "what's the problem?"...and do it again when I leave something unattended...I never have figured out how they get yarn wound, not only around the chair and table legs, but up over the rungs 2, 3 and 4 times?
