I’ve spent the past two weeks trying to find a lost ball of yarn. I know I have a lot of yarn but really? It’s just a simple ball of Kroy Sock Yarn I purchased a long time ago in very Halloween like colors. For years it sat in my sock yarn bins and at one point last winter I cast on for a pair of socks and was going to play around with making my own pattern. For some reason or another I ripped back to the toe and threw it in a bag. I failed however to throw that ball’s mate into the same bag and about three weeks ago when I pulled it out and decided to use it to knit up a pair of socks for Mike, I figured the other ball would turn up before I was done. Flash forward about two days when I started working on the cuff and figured I’d take a peek around. Not sock in my bins, not in my WIP bags, just nothing.
I just spent the past 45 minutes digging through every corner of my townhouse that has yarn, nothing. I wanted to finish the pair by Halloween but it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen any time soon.
However, the dig through the sock yarn bin has pulled up some beauties I’d forgotten about that will now be closer to the front of the line to knit. I’ve got another pair I’m working on for Mike so don’t feel too bad. He picked out the yarn for this particular pair right after he first moved in and that was almost a year ago so at least I’ll have those done for him before the year marker!
We took a nice late afternoon walk today (as nice as I could on my lunch break). It was nice and we enjoyed the sites and sounds of fall. I think we’re going to venture out to one of the haunted houses this weekend. Already mid-October. This season is going too quickly!
