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.
I 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. :cheering: I carefully packed everything away.
This morning I went to cast on my next sock. To find only 2 of 5 needles.

Sinking ... I called my kids.
No one admitted it, but a search of their rooms turned up 6 halves of Rosewood knitting needles.
Mamma is :!!!: :wall: :!!!: :grrr: :grrr:
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...
I :shrug: 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.
