I'm not dead yet
I have been doing some knitting, but alas I have a tragic story to share. You may to stop reading if you are easily upset.
Ok ready? The most upsetting thing that can happen to any commuting knitter happened to me last week. I lost my project bag on a bus. Not only did that mean that I had nothing to knit... it also meant that I lost 2 Christmas presents in progress.
One was a pair of socks for Salvbard, two-at-once halfway through the ridiculously long cuff he likes. It was in fingering weight and a color of Mountain Colors Bearfoot that I know he would have really liked.
The other was a pair of gauntlet length fingerless mitts for one of my dearest friends in Slytherin colors. I had finished the first one, and the second one was just about finished with the thumb gusset. I do not have time to make another pair in time. I am seriously crushed.
If you have any news that might cheer me up or a story of similar woes I would love to hear them. It has been an upsetting few days.
