I'm always scared to death my little terror will cut woollies I'm working on. :shudder:
I bought some yarn from someone that when she went to package it up realized her son got scissor happy and she messages me freaking out. I was so sad for her and me cause I wanted that yarn but se said he got it good.

Pi did worse, he took scissors to every pair of longies he owned. When we hid all the scissors, he started ripping them apart with anything else he could find... forks, crochet hooks, you name it. He got a wool ban for a very very long time. The handspun kimono sweater I did for his birthday was the first wool item he's had in at least a year.

This sounds like my Logan. Oh he's such a bad little character. But he's so dang cute. This is a scary story! I might have nightmares!
