A great disappointment (minorly speaking) descended upon me this week...
You know I like to knit. And you know I love wool yarn. And if you are a knitter you know that wool yarn is not only lovely but also can be quite expensive.
This week our local consignment shop had a very large bag of (as yet unmarked and unshelved) wool yarn. It sat near the counter when I first walked in the store. There were skeins and skeins! Some with labels which clearly labeled the lovely yarn as "Wool".
So I took a closer look.
And I saw multiple mouse droppings scattered on this skein and that skein. I surreptitiously took a little sniff. Yep, mouse smell.
I had to walk away. Perhaps I will go back and bring home a skein or two and soak well and rinse and lay out to dry. Maybe.
Disclaimer: Please recognize that I recognize that this "great" disappointment is of the lesser kind of this world...it's not exactly a "great" catastrophe in the grand scheme of things eternal. For in the grand scheme of things eternal, this is but a momentary thing. I do know how to keep a proper perspective on things of life! )
