Hello, this is WIP Accounting, Clarissa speaking.  How may I help you today?
Hey Clarissa this is Eleanor.  Can I get a quick WIP Audit for my blog?
Certainly ma’am, Do you want the full audit of shame package or the active wips audit?
uh,,, let’s go with just the active.  I don’t think I can stand the audit of shame right now.
Certainly ma’am, An investigator will be out to your residence shortly,,,


Offical Report Findings
Active WIP Audit

When the investigator entered the residence all active knitting and crochet projects were found hanging from wall mounted hooks in individual project bags.  The active spinning was found in a bin under the television, leading this investigator to believe that it may not be as ‘active’ as the knitter promised.

The project bags were consolidated and photographed for evidence.  The photograph is labeled to show the order the projects are displayed in this report.

Project A)  Halloween Themed Bag

The bag was very full when I opened it, too full to properly document.  The knitting was removed and it was revealed to be a nearly complete pinwheel sweater.

Investigator Comments:
My Reporting practices were closely monitored by a black feline. while I was auditing the spinning wip she attempted to eat the fiber. In case the knitter charges us with fiber neglect I documented the beast as closely as possible in a separate Feline Damage Form. I have enclosed some pictures below to aid in any follow up investigation:
At first the feline calmly watched…

Then it noticed the fiber…
