Yarn Rascal is besides himself waiting for me to weave in more ends on the girl’s stripe sweater. He likes to raid the pile of yarn clippings from sewing in the ends and ingest as many as he can. His digestive system, naturally, rejects the yarn as viable food substance, but this does not stop him. It stops me, however, from finishing the work I need done.

I tried keeping a small plastic bag near me to shove the clippings in, then secure it shut. Just the crinkling sound of the plastic bag shifts him into high gear and next thing we’re in mid raid.

I tried closing myself in another room, but the moment he hears the snip of the scissors it’s over. He repeatedly launches himself against the door to get in. Trying to neatly sew in yarn ends while the door is being battered down does nothing positive for my nerves or my sewing skills.

The only option I can think of is getting in the car, driving to a parking lot and sitting there until every end is sewn in. It’s precisely what I am doing this afternoon. What a way to begin a long weekend.
