Utter sadness. I was speechless when I pulled my favorite mittens out of my mitten storage*, put them on and realized that they had become a midsummers snack to some thoughtless moths. I actually thought I might cry! Now I will be scouring the internet on how to darn because I can not let these little babies die. They are about 6 years old and don’t look a day over 1 thanks to the wonderful properties of alpaca. Luckily I have the yarn leftover still saved for an occasion such as this, wish me luck.
* I had moth protection in my mitten storage, but apparently not enough. Will also be working on remedying this.
