Woman Swallowed Up by Giant Ball O' Yarn

Local authorities reported that a woman knitter was trapped inside a ball of yarn for several hours this morning and rescued by her hungry cat. I'm not sure what happened," the dazed woman said. "I was staring at my Oregon Woodworker yarn swift going around and around and the next thing I knew, I must have fallen in and wound myself into a ball of yarn."

Realizing his lack of opposable thumbs will make it difficult to feed himself, Cary claws desperately at a ball of yarn in an effort to save his caretaker.

"Surviving this terrible ordeal has given me a whole new perspective on yarn stash," commented the Knitter. As she drove off to her LYS, the still starry eyed knitter says she will embark on a new business opportunity by knitting the first ever coffin cozy. "I mean, if knitting is a slice of heaven, why not take it all with you?"

if you've emerged from your yarn caccoon will you mind going to check your email (the hotmail address published here)? There is a mystery book swap package awaiting an address.
thank you...from your mystery pal who manages to even lose email - wonder if it ended up in a ball of yarn somewhere?

Yay to Cary for rescuing you (even if it was for selfish reasons)!
