***Any knitters with queasy stomachs should probably bypass this post. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Way back in the summer time I started this beautiful lace stole. Because lace takes me such a ridiculously long ass time to knit I decided not to bore you all with the details until I had one half finished and had started the other half (it's one of those deals that you do two halves then graft them together.)

I' mostly a social knitter complex projects don't get a whole lot of time, but I diligently worked on my stole for months and then put it away for x-mas knits and other interests.
X-mas knits are over and Laurie's hat has been gifted (she loved it by the way - was very excited about the foldedness said it would keep her ears warmer) so I broke out the waves stole to start work on it again.
There are no words to explain what happened. Well - actually I had quite a few choice ones at the time but none that are appropriate to put in to print. Can you see? No? I'll blow it up for you - hold your breath...

Yea - ain't that some shit. My guess is something ate it. Makes a knitter want to cry. There may have even been a few tears. Took me a month to gather the strength to photograph it. Still haven't the heart to throw it out. (*&%$)@#\$#&^* BUGS!

::blink, blink::
thud <~ sound of jaw dropping


Oh, there would have been some serious tears if this had been mine. That so sucks big time. I don't know what else to say but a big I'm so sorry.
Oh now that just sucks! I'm so sorry that it happened to you.
What Jane said!
NNOOOO!!! Maybe it was some other vermin, mice maybe? Better be on the safe side and start stuffing your yarn in the freezer
