What is Wrong With this Picture?

I know, besides the fact that it's blurry...
This is my second Monkey. I don't want to show it to you all until I have a matched set. Here's my problem. How many needles do you see? Four, right? Where's the fifth one, you ask? I WISH I KNEW! You see, it was a beautiful day here yesterday, with temps in the low 80s. #1 child was out, #2 child was entertaining a friend and totally absorbed in PS3, and #3 child was happily playing on her own. It was a perfect opportunity to sneak an hour of knitting in on Monkey. I knit away happily out on the patio in the chaise. My husband started sweeping (I love a man who cleans) and the dust started flying. I jumped up and quickly walked away, holding Monkey. I kind of meandered around the lawn. Not the whole lawn, just a small area. Then I went inside to check on #2 child, and to pick up where I left off on Monkey. The fifth needle had gone missing. I told the children (even the guest) that the first person to find it would get $5 and the hunt was on. "Is this it?" they asked. "No, that's a twig." And so it went for about 20 minutes, until I had to bring guest home and pick up #1 child. So if any of you find my Crystal Palace #1 dpn, I'll send you $5... And if Monkey doesn't get finished soon, it's not that I haven't tried.

Hope it didn't get swept down underneath anything, but you've got to realize it's in the nature of Dpns to go awol & you might be best off buying 2 sets at a time. I know I've probably left a trail behind me that if I could only find the start would lead me back to 1980.
