Well, mom followed through with her redecorating scheme (you'll have to scroll down or do whatever you have to do to read about that...I don't know how to link. I'm a dog.)
All those great opportunities to remove and munch on ball bands have----WHOOOSH---- disappeared; I'm not overly happy. Have I told you lately how much I love love LOVE!!! chewing on paper!?!! (and!yarn!bands!are!my!favorite!!) Yum. Tasty.
I was happily napping when I sort of got wind that there was a photo shoot about to happen (my very favorite time of day)....so I dragged (drugged?) myself to the staging chair just in time to make it. My sleepy eyes are hardly opened yet.
I immediately checked.
Drat. No band. She took it off already. (sigh)
I'm rather well schooled in knitting projects and this looks like the beginning of a shawl. Shawls take lots of yarn. Lots of yarn = lots of ball bands. I'll have more opportunities. In the meantime, I'm going to check in all my usual places---when mom's not looking---and see if I can find the missing one.
