I do not have a problem with moths. Therefore, I thought my yarn was safe –especially my sock yarn arranged sooooo artistically in a wicker basket.
I was wrong. Not the moth part –the safe part.
We do have teesy brown bugs — they are freaking miniscule! not worth mentioning small — with hard little shells.
They eat yarn.
They ate my Madelinetosh sock yarn. In the beautiful jewel tone Malachite. That I was going to use to make Embossed Leaves socks.
The remaining sock yarn has been sealed in plastic bags; some with lavender.
This is known as closing the barn door after the horses are gone.
There may have been weeping.
And unladylike language.
