A local man, known to most simply as the "Knitting Bandit's Husband", was shocked when he discovered a huge stash of yarn while innocently deep cleaning his basement Sunday afternoon.
He stumbled upon worsted weight wool, super fine alpaca, fingering weight wool, ten shades of cotton, merino wool, a few really big balls of acrylic, a lot of superwash sock wool from Germany, even some wool and silk blends, two balls of super soft camel ( in a gorgeous shade of brown), wool for knitting lace, yarn made from bamboo and reportedly, an elusive and quite expensive ball of buffalo (of course it costs a lot--can you imagine trying to crawl under the belly of a buffalo and shave it?). Although the man alarmed at first, the police report quotes the wife quickly reassured the man with the following statement: "Uh, yarn? What yarn? Hmmmm...Oh, yeah. THAT yarn. That belongs to a friend of mine. She must have left it in our basement."
