It is with great sadness that I announce the loss of my Cicada Mary socks… They were to be Bloody Mary socks knitted in Yarn Pirate Cicada. I had them and was knitting away at Bunny’s Tae Kwon Do class on Wednesday. We went from Tae Kwon Do to the car, drove to another parking lot, got out, went to a restaurant and ate, got back in the car and drove home. When we arrived at home my socks (knit two at a time, past the heel turn) in the cute fabric bag I got from Gwen my SP10 were not in the car.

B returned to the parking lots later, no luck. I have asked at Tae Kwon Do as well as most of the surrounding businesses and the restaurant. They are gone… I am sad. I really liked that yarn, I really liked that bag, I had spent a TON of time knitting on size 0 needles. I spent yesterday, when it was clear they were really gone, drowning my sorrows in fried fish and non-diet soda…

Then swatched for something new! A tomten for Bunny. I also looked through all my sock yarn and made a tentative choice of a new sock project… so loss, but the knitting goes on.

And if you happen to be in Arlington, VA and find a small bag of knitting, could you let me know?
