All points bulletin March 6, 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — katy @ 8:31 am

Has anyone seen my sock?  It was last noticed sitting on the desk at Granny’s Yarn Shoppe in Islip.  The knitter–me–left it there as a sample until she–me–finished the second sock.  Wah!  Someone walked off with my sock.  It happens.  People lift samples sometimes.  Skeins.  Needles.  But one freaking sock!  C’mon! 

In other knitting news, I am back to pulsewarmers.  Joanne–if you are still reading–#2 is on the needles for you!  Then it is back to the green ones that were mismatched in size.  I have barely considered what to bring to Costa Rica.  My mom is trying to talk me into finishing Jaywalker #2…something about them being for me…and then working my 1 missing sock angle.  No thanks.  As I am only carrying on (world’s lightest packer here)–I am trying to avoid metal needles.  Just in case.  All my needles are scattered.  And I am a bit of an Addi snob. 

Ro_blanket_001_1 We had Kevin’s family over for dinner yesterday–discussing with his mom the kids schedule and all.  His nephew is a cutie pie and brought his blanket that I knit for him.  It’s his favorite!  I think it is from an old issue of Knitter’s and it is worked in Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece.  It has a cute seed stitch star motif.  A Rosario_sirdar_sweater real bugger to knit.  But the finished product was loved by me and him.  He was the recipient of the little Sirdar cable sweater I knit.  Don’tcha love when people actually use your handknitted gifts?

Well, off to tidy and pack.  I can’t believe Costa Rica is less than a week away!

    Having people actually use and appreciate one’s handknit gifts has to rank right up there with BEST THING EVER.

    I know I owe you an e-mail, but I just had to leave a comment to point out the *obvious* — it had to have been a one footed person who stole the sock! Well, that or someone who suffers from second sock syndrome and figured you’d just solved that problem for him/her. My hope of hopes is that it got stuck to someone (like when socks come out of the dryer) and they will realize it and bring it back.

    On the other hand, I had no idea that people stole samples from yarn shops, much less needles and skeins. I guess I thought that knitters were a fairly honest group of people. I am surprised about that one.

    darling – have you looked everywhere for that sock?? It could be under a pile of something or other on that desk!

    Certainly well worth the hard work and effort.
    Do people have no shame, taking someone elses WIP.
    Have a great time in Costa Rica, I know it’s very beautiful.

    Did you notify the authorities? A stolen sock is serious business!! 🙂 I hear Costa Rica is beautiful, have a great time.

    Happy Knitting!

    I bow to your stamina–seed stitch blanket using splitty Cotton Fleece. It’s always gratifying to have someone appreciate what you’ve knitted them.
