Close Call!!Yesterday, while sitting in the lovely 70 degree weather waiting for the bus, I happily knit away on the first Tiger sock. When the bus pulled up, I stuffed the sock in its bag, and hopped on the bus. Not more than a few moments had passed when, taking out the sock to begin working on it again, I noticed that (GASP!!!) I only had 4 out of 5 needles- 1 had escaped!! I double checked the bag, looked on the floor of the bus as quickly as I could, and rang the bell to be let off at the next stop. Explaining to the driver that I had left something at the last stop and would need to catch the next bus, I bounded off, praying fervently that I hadn't dropped the needle on the bus... since I hadn't seen it, it would have been lost forever. I raced back to the original stop and, heart racing, searched the ground for that seemingly insignificant bamboo skewer. There it was, on the ground, a few feet from where I had been sitting. Snatching it up, I pulled out his friends (and the attached sock), and got to work, waiting for the next bus to pull up, and resolving to be more careful lest a needle again be struck by wanderlust.
Tomorrow- update pictures, and Princess Cricket the Yarn Destroyer! :)
