Where's My Wool?

This winter I've been finding random woolen items strewn about the house in random places.  At first, I thought I had just misplaced them.  But soon I realized that SOMEONE had been taking them from their usual places and carrying them off to another location.  

Case in point: my wool leg warmers.  I normally keep them with the shoes, by our front door.  However, they often appear in various locations around the house.  One morning, I awoke to find one of my legwarmers in the hallway, outside of the upstairs bathroom-- there's NO way I misplaced just ONE of my legwarmers there!  

I have an ongoing craft project that I've been working on, I want to make a quilt out of felted wool sweaters.  It's a slow process, as it involves buying sweaters from thrift stores, bringing them home and felting them, and then carefully cutting them into rectangular pieces.  I recently acquired several wool sweaters in one thrift store trip, so I brought my basket full of felted wool rectangles upstairs, so I could work on my project.  Soon, I began finding the pieces of felted wool all over the living room. 
This, apparently, is why: 

I worked hard making those Sylvester, not cool I tell you!
