I knit this little dress this summer.

I absolutely love it.  It cost me close to $24.00 for the yarn.  I had enough yarn left over that I thought I could get another hank and knit some tights to go with it.
I do not have a tight pattern that I wanted to use so I started improvising.  I work on the tights intermittently, between other projects.
So.................I picked them up tonight to work on them.  This is what I found!!!  Some little person, (I am thinking my darling #1419 otherwise unnamed to protect him if he is innocent.  He is three years old though.) took a pair of scissors and cut the yarn.  Not only on the outside of the $12.00 skein, but he put them inside the middle and snipped too!!
I am hoping there is enough yarn that I can finish the project without having to continuously stop and work in loose ends.
I am hearing some of you saying I should not have left it down.  But.......when you are knitting, you want it to be available when you have a moment or two to sit down and knit.  Could have even put the scissors up, but again, they were in my knitting basket.  Available when I am knitting so I do not have to get up and go search.
Guess I just need to be a little more strict when they play in the area that I keep my basket.  Which, by the way is in the corner between my two couches, not right out in the open.  Maybe it should be out in the open, seems it a little to easy to crouch down and snip, snip, snip.

I'm loving your daughter's sarcasm! I knew who it was the moment I read her words. Now watch, I'll be wrong!

I love that little outfit and am sorry to hear your yarn was snipped. I still have some to bring you. Sorry I haven't gotten it in the mail. I'm horrible at mailing things in a timely fashion.

Oh my goodness that is a keepsake dress! I have a store bought one my mom kept from when I was 9 months old. Yours is killer!

And Gah! over the scissors! Sashi got into something a little pricey herself and got a very stern talking to. Very stern. I imagine it meant nothing to her. But man I got loud.

And sacrcasm is awesome! Way to go for the throat, I say.
