So, Saturday night I had the distinct pleasure of babysitting my beautiful niece, Caroline, while everybody else went to Halloween Horror Nights. I've been working on some Christmas decorations for the craft show in Oveido that Mom and Jenni entered. One of them is a miniature stocking ornament, which was sitting on a table in the living room Saturday night when they dropped Caroline off. Caroline and I were getting ready to go to the duck pond -- "you sit right here while Micky goes and changes her clothes" -- and when I came out of the bedroom, Caroline walked over to me saying, "Here you need-ohs, Mickey. And you yawn," as she holds up one hand with five needles, and one hand with a clump of yarn and a stocking-in-progress, from which she had yanked all of the working needles. "Thank you, Baby," I said and just stood there and looked at the damage.
Fortunately, as previously stated, it was a miniature stocking, and I was knitting it at a very tight gauge, so the stitches were very easy to pick up. But still, I'm sure you'll agree, it's never fun to see all of your needles outside of their respective wips.
Check back soon for some pictures of that and many other finished ornaments.
