Poor, bedraggled knit

Remember the Peachick Eyes Cardigan?  It wasn’t seeing much love with my obsessive knitting on Cocktail(Dress).  Well, sometimes I like to knit while I walk to work in the morning when the weather is nice.  I can do this with stockinette projects that are mostly auto-pilot knitting, because I don’t have to look at them while knitting.  The Peachick was going to be my walk-and-knit project since the dress was getting too large for this.  When I walk and knit, it makes me walk a little more slowly, but it’s a lovely time to walk at a leisurely pace with all of the gorgeous flowering trees on my walk to work.

Monday I planned on walking and knitting, but I ended up having less time to walk than I planned, so I wasn’t able to do both.  Monday went by with me taking no breaks and it wasn’t until the end of the day when I was packing up my bag that I noticed my knitting was missing.  I was flabbergasted.  I realized with a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach that the cardigan must have fallen out of my bag somewhere on the way to work.  M was giving me a ride home and we re-traced most of my walking route.peachick beating

Luckily, I found the project near the park I walk through on the way, on the sidewalk.  Matt spotted it just when I was about to give up.  It looks like it might have been trampled on a bit, but I think it will be fine with a wash and some defuzzing.  In a way, it was also fortunate that I didn’t realize the project was gone until the very end of the day, because I only had to mourn its potential loss for about 20 minutes.  This is a good lesson for me to zip my overstuffed bag, or just carry a bigger bag.  I’m just grateful it was recovered.

  2. I can’t believe someone trappled on it! It is such a pretty colour, they couldn’t not have seen it. I guess it is a blessing that someone’s dog hadn’t done something worse on it.

  3. I’m curious to find out what blog system you’re working with?
    I’m experiencing some minor security issues with my latest blog and I’d like to find something more secure.
    Do you have any recommendations?
