Lost knitting

Knitting back where it belongs!

Knitting back where it belongs!

I lost my knitting yesterday.  Bill and I were doing a pick-up photoshoot for the Book, and the Jeep was piled with boxes – all of the Book projects, plus yarn, clothing, and photographic equipment.  I grabbed the final sleeve for Mithril, so that I would have something to knit while he set up.  I put the pattern, extra yarn, the finished sleeve for comparison, and the sleeve in progress all together in a big ziplock bag.  I was thinking about a lot of stuff, and loading the car took awhile, so it wasn’t until I was in the car seat that I realized I didn’t have the knitting.  Hmm.

When we got home, I unpacked everything, and kept a lookout for the bag, while Bill left for another shoot.  No knitting.  I went through all of the tubs and bags, re-organizing as I went.  I called Bill to check the car. No knitting.  He stopped at the studio and checked there.  No knitting.  I went through every room I had been in while packing up, and cleaned and organized as I went.  No knitting.

At this point I was wishing that I hadn’t put it all together.  if I just lost the sleeve in progress, I’d be fine, but the extra yarn and finished sleeve?  Yikes.  I wondered if the project hid itself in retaliation for not working on it for awhile.  But hey, I was busy!  I knit two Tawanka shawls (for the Book, you will see them later) and Chelsea’s shawl.  Mithril wasn’t a UFO (un-finished object), it was merely a NFO (not-finished project).  No disrespect intended.

After cleaning several rooms in the house, I gave up.  Bill came home, empty-handed and adorably concerned about the lost knitting.  I went out to the garage to check the car myself.  Going around the back to my side of the car, I spotted the bag on the garage counter.  It made it that far, but not quite to the car.

So, I have a cleaner house, organized knitting, and am going to get the sleeve done pronto, before it can try to get away again!

    How wonderful that you found yours. Heatherly’s Handspun in her Slipped Stitch bag is still lost in the Chicago airport… If any Stitches MIDWEST people want to inquire about it…. I am sure she would give you the stats! <3

    Oh no! I won’t be there for a few days, but am looking forward to seeing her! Slipped Stitch bags are pretty memorable, maybe it will be turned into Lost and found. Fingers crossed.
