On the heels of my lost knitting, I am figuratively kicking myself for not putting my contact information into my project bag. I even have hundreds of little personal business cards that I had made for super cheap. They are uselessly not accompanying my missing knitting. kick kick!
Lesson learned. I’ll be putting my contact info into all my project bags this week. I recommend you do the same.
In service to my fellow knitters, I’ve created a printable DIY knitting project tag that you can download (especially for those who don’t have business cards ready to go): In Case of Loss.
I hope you are more clever than I and that this sinking feeling of loss never finds you. In case it does, may this small slip of insurance bring you some minor relief and hope.
Agh! Project missing!
I’ve been traveling over this past extended weekend and somewhere between San Francisco and Prescott, Arizona, I lost my Sunset Socks. 😦
Full of ambition, I packed 2 projects in my carry-on tote. Really? Was I gonna finish a full sweater from start-to-finish in less than 4 days AND work on my sock? Apparently I thought I could.
It was crowded in that tote. In addition to the Sunset Sock project bag, I had 6 balls of yarn for a new Acer Cardigan, assorted needles and notions, boarding pass receipts, rental car reservation print outs, snacks, purse within the tote, etc.
I was caught up in the startitus of the Acer and took the Sock bag out of the tote to gain access to the new balls of yarn.
Why!?! Where?!? Ugh! I abandoned my poor socks while caught up in the thrill of a new project.
I just filed a Lost Report with the airline and left a frantic message with one of the dining establishments I was at.
So stupid feeling. So sad.
In optimistic tribute that they will be found…
