(Anybody else remember that film? I'm sure it's to blame for my lifelong fascination with Siamese...)
A couple of weeks ago, one of my carers took off her fleecy gloves when she came in, and left them on the sofa. When it came time to leave, they were gone. She had to catch a bus, so just told me to hang on to them when I found them - and laughingly suggested that Merlin, with his love for all things woolly, had run off with them.
Half an hour later, Merlin appeared. He was dragging one of the gloves, and growled when we tried to take it from him.
We did eventually find the pair. One was undamaged - but one was missing a finger, as neatly excised as if he had used scissors.
So - anyone got any good glove patterns??
