During the gift exchange, I pulled out the afghan I'm crocheting so I could make some progress. As I was putting it back into its bag, though, I noticed that it was a little extra heavy. In addition to the skein of yarn, the blanket was also supporting a six 6 Mary Jane shoe. The velcro had caught on the yarn earlier in the day, and I'd packed the shoe away into my crocheting bag.
I'm calling this a freak accident, as I'd like to think I'm not in the habit of stealing shoes from two year olds.
