Wednesdays Are For Knitting

Today’s post is supposed to be filled with lovely pictures of my Wandering the Moor shawl. I finished it on October 21st and planned to block it last weekend and post about it today.

See that? That is the JessaLu bag that the shawl lived in while I was working on it. And with the bag is the yarn I had left over when I finished it. What you don’t see, of course, is a blocked shawl. Why?

Because I can’t find it.

That’s right, my friends, I have lost my unblocked Wandering the Moor Shawl. It’s not in my knitting basket where I always always leave things waiting to be blocked. It’s not in my bedroom where I occasionally move things after they have been blocked but before they have been blogged. It’s not upstairs in my craft room, it’s not in my brief case, it’s not in my car, it’s not under the couch or between the cushions of the couch or in the kitchen or anything other damn place that I’ve looked.

It’s somewhere, of course. I just have no idea where.

I’ll let you know just as soon as I find it.

  1. I’m glad I’m not alone. I spent the better part of a morning looking for a UFO that I had put aside. Yes, it did turn up and yes, I felt really silly afterwards.

  2. Cracking up at Kathy’s comment, but all kidding aside that is maddening. Has Mason absconded with it? Hope it turns up soon.

  3. Ummmmm. I think the name says it all. Hope you find it soon. I can’t wait to see it! (Do you think the Evil Clown might have taken it?)

  4. I “lost” a pair of sleeves for a week. They were in a bag (to no one’s surprise), but what made them hard to find was that it was a computer bag.

  5. My first thought was like Kym’s…. frisk the clown! Or, possibly Hannah? ;^) Hope it wanders back soon.

  6. You have done what I do, put it some where you would easily remember and where you could put your hands right on it! I have lots of things there…just can’t remember where “there” is!

  7. Try saying a quick prayer to St. Anthony, finder of lost things. Works every time for me, and believe me I talk to him almost daily, sometimes more than once in a day! Don’t worry, you don’t need a high level of belief for this to help. Good luck–I know how frustrating, maddening even, it can be.

  8. Well, that stinks! Hopefully it turns up soon, and then I can’t wait to see it 🙂 I agree with everyone, check the cat and the clown!!

  9. I’m glad I’m not the only one who loses things like that. I feel your pain. It has to turn up soon. But it’s frustrating in the meantime.

    Maybe the clown took it.

  10. Oh no! I’m with Dinah although the wandering, Macon and the clown…. We will be waiting with bated breath. Good luck!

  11. I hate when that happens. It makes me waffle between puzzled, PO’d, and having that sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. I hope it turns up soon!

  12. Did it travel to Utah with you? Check a suitcase? I like your Jessalu Bag. I ordered a sock monkey bag from her last month and I love it. The little mokeys and banana print interior always make me smile.

  13. It’s time to get out the troops. Have someone else look for it. Leave no stone unturned twice or three times. Good luck!

  14. I just hate when that happens…and for me it is all to frequently these days! I attribute it to living a life that is often too full.

  15. Oh no! I feel your pain, I’ve lost my just finished handspun mitts. I’ve been following the advice of an Indian friend, to tie a knot in something I am wearing every day and it’ll bring misplaced items back to me. I’ve been finding all kind of misplaced items since trying this…but not the mitts. Maybe you should give it a try too?

  16. If you find it, will you please make sure the key to my safety deposit box isn’t with it? I have been on the lookout for it for almost a year now. Luckily, my parents have one, too. I hid it in *such* a safe place that I’m thinking I may never find it.

  17. I normally have that problem with yarn and WIPs. I managed to leave my knitting bag under my desk at work one night with my WIP in it. Thankfully it was untouched the next morning. Apparently a few weeks ago I lost a sock in progress out of my bag withouth realizing it and came in for a class i was takj g the following week and it was on the TA’s desk. I had three projects I was working in so I never noticed it was missing. Oops. Let’s not even speak of the ball of sock yarn that’s been missing for two months.

  18. Say WHAT?! I hate it when that happens! Especially because I am really looking forward to seeing that shawl now. Or did you do this create suspense? You are so tricky….hmmmm

  19. You will find it – my mom always says “A house loses nothing” which I quote to my kids every time they can’t find something.
