Two weeks ago, I was flying to Maryland on a business trip out of Cleveland Hopkins airport. While I was knitting, I shuffled through my laptop case, looking for my iPod, and took my knitting notions bag out in order to get a better view. That was the last time I saw my notions bag. In it, two row counters (red and pink), a Nancy's Knit Knacks gauge, my orange chibi (with the fantastic needle I use to kitchner the toes of socks), my prized pink chibi (bought it off of ebay as they don't make them any more), a set of 5" US 3 double points, a set of US 1 metal double points, a set of US 6 double points, and my collapsable scissors. I stopped by Lost and Found when I returned to Cleveland Friday night, but they hadn't seen anything and told me to stop by again, as it sometimes takes a while for things to get from the gates to Lost and Found, so all hope is not lost. But I feel completely at a loss without all my "stuff".
When in Maryland, I did get the chance to stop by Woolwinders to attempt to replenish some of the lost items. I really only needed the tapestry needles/chibi, and wouldn't ya know? They were all out. I want to send a giant shout out (are we on the radio?!?) to Jackie, LYS owner extraordinnaire, who said "Don't worry, I own plenty. Take one of mine." She proceeded to hand me over a blue chibi from her own personal stash. What a fantastic thing to do for me! I cannot say thank you enough!
I have since replenished some of the double points and the orange chibi. Row counters will come when I'm in need. I have to get the gauge soon, as I'm not sure the difference between my US 1's and my US 1.5's. Thank goodness I had taken out my brand new Addi US 2's (two pair) that I bought the week before!
