I found my blanket......joy joy joy. It was in my knitting basket the whole time, but I must have put it in the bottom so it didn't get lost, and I lost it. Happening too many times to count recently. Short term memory loss here I come. So happy.
The fairies were to blame.

I honestly do not think you put it in the bottom of your knitting basket and forgot it or lost it there; I think the fairies borrowed it and when they say how upset you were they returned it to the bottom of your knitting basket. Happens to me all the time. I think I have lost something and then remember the mischievous fairies are always borrowing things. I just ask them to return the missing item when they have finished with it. And yes, the item then suddenly turns up in a place I had checked and rechecked.

You must remember to thank the fairies for returning your blanket otherwise their feelings may be hurt.

I am so sad this morning. We have just been away on a small trip, and when we got there my mosaic blanket was nowhere to be found. We stopped twice on the way there, and I am thinking my husband dropped it out of the car when he moved my craft bag to put some beer in the back seat. I backtracked but nobody has handed it in at the two places we stopped on our way there. I have just contacted the local radio station to put it on their Lost and Found broadcast, so finger crossed. It would mean nothing to some-one else, perhaps they picked it up and kept it for a dog blanket, but it mean't the world to me.

It鈥檚 sad that some folks don鈥檛 even bother reading past the initial post. They might have seen that it was found.
But that would be ... uh, what's the word? ... oh, yeah ... reasonable. ;)

Remember the page after page inundation of no digest topic back when? I hope and pray that with the management change that can't happen again.

I definitely feel your type of pain. I had an entire bag of quilt squares to join for my sister that got tossed in the trash at a roadside stopover. I also had a craft bag of multiple items in process for a craft show taken from the sidewalk as I loaded groceries and baby into the hot car. I sincerely hope your turns up safe and sound.

I answered too quickly. I'm soooo glad it was found!

I have gotten, so I don't take really important projects (in-the-works or finished). I try to make sure I have a business card or slip of paper with my project bags, just in case. I put name labels on finished objects. If you don't have those, using indelible link on ribbon (satin, grosgrain, etc) can suffice. A phone number (if yours isn't changed much) or email, might be another good idea.

So sorry for your loss, but putting out good thoughts that it turns up. Some put things on Craig's List in their Lost & Found, just in case you haven't thought of that.

One woman told of her story of her yarn ball falling out of the car with her project intact. She went to several places and didn't notice. Once she realized this, she backtracked and rewound her ball as she went. Thought you might get a giggle out of that to lighten the load. I thought it seemed pretty ridiculous until it happened to me, but it was a short distance. I then noted the 'do not judge (in any way, shape, or form)' was duly noted. <S>

Best, Elation

Good, you are now again in possession of your knitted blanket. It happens often that we keep safe at a place and find it in another but while searching something else we find the actual one . Thank God that you found it.
