Lost Yarn

I went to visit Helen yesterday so we swung by the yarn store close to her house. I had in mind a specific type of yarn I wanted to buy and I knew exactly what I wanted to make. But the sight of all the beautiful yarn just knocked those thoughts right out of my head. It wasn’t until we left the store that I realized I didn’t buy the yarn I had intended to buy! I could just kick myself. But I did buy some other yarn that I thought was oh so pretty. I was drawn to this yarn immediately. It reminds me of candy, cotton candy to be exact. I don’t know what I’m going to make with it. I just wanted it so I bought three balls.

I also went digging in the remnant bin and I found four balls of some darker yarn. Again I don’t know what I want to make but I just wanted it. When I got home at the end of the day, I immediately dived into the yarn store bag. And OH NO…three balls of the darker yarn was missing. So I automatically assumed they had fallen out in the car. I was too tired to go back to the car and check so I thought I would wait until today. Well it’s today but I can’t check now because Alan has taken the car paintballing. So I wan’t too worried about it. I was sure it would turn up. AND ONE OF THEM HAS. But not in a good way.

Nestle was dashing around the house. I didn’t think anything of it. I wasn’t paying much attention since I was checking my email. I finally looked up and she had my monkey slipper in her mouth! I shrieked, she dropped it, no big deal. I did think it was a little strange since she never touches my monkey slipper. So I went looking for my other monkey slipper and that’s when I saw it…a ball of the darker yarn. I thought yay it must have just dropped out of my bag when I brought it into the house. I picked it up and it was WET! Oh no!! It’s been in Nestle’s mouth!! In fact you can see the holes where she punctured the wrapper with her teeth!

So the question is…where are the other balls of yarn?!?!
