Cat Lady No. 208...Leftover Balls of Yarn

Cat Lady Nancy just found a new knitting pattern that she can't wait to try out, because she thinks it will be a good way to use up all of the leftover balls of yarn that are stashed away in the closet...

It's a pattern for colorful socks called "Tiptoe Through The Tulips" courtesy of the Yarn Harlot, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, who learned how to knit at the age of 4 and has written several humorous books on the subject of knitting and knitters.

Nancy's feline friend Muppet happens to be an expert on leftover balls of yarn and just looks on in amusement. Muppet knows that no matter how hard Nancy tries to use up leftover balls of yarn, it's an exercise in futility. Because, as any expert knows, they simply multiply in the closet, late at night, and only cats can hear the soft rustling in the darkness...
