Four Tulip 15cm Bamboo 2.75 needles were tragically dismembered today leaving the sole survivor speechless. The departed are believed to be victim to a vicious attack perpetrated by an innocent and cute looking dog that goes by the name "Pierre". Pierre, aka "The Yarn Snob", is well known for his ability to destroy natural and luxury yarns, has now apparently progressed to the more evil crime of needle-torturing. The below image shows the wreckage he can cause to both needles and yarn in a mere hour.
The spotty ladybug sock is currently in a stable condition, after being taken to intensive care and being put on life support consisting of four metal DPNs. The sole survivor of the family of five needles will undertake rehab as a cable needle for some time. Clean up crews are still trying to find pieces of the victims in the vicinity of the carnage.

Below is an image of the perpetrator, taken earlier today, in which he deceptively fakes a false respect for the knitted item. (Item is completed sleeve from loopy mohair trim sweater). If you are approached by this hound, please consider him to be fanged and dangerous. Please watch your knitting at all times, and for heaven's sake, please do not let it out by itself,
