Very Creepy Crawlies
Surprise, surprise. Upon opening my mailbox this afternoon I noticed a few ants climbing around on a box from Knit Picks. In the spring it is not unusual to have them take up residence but this time they went too far. Inside the box they had built what appeared to be a condo development with hundreds of eggs packed in every nook and cranny of the contents. Poor things. I really wanted my 6" Harmony doublepoint set and my Montavilla string bag kit so I had to disturb them. I still have a bad case of the heebie jeebies from watching them scurry around in their panic while I carefully dug out my things. Thank goodness Knit Picks packs their stuff in plastic or that cotton yarn would have surely been a goner.
