I am such a fool. My DBF took off for the evening to hang out with an old friend and I was eagerly looking forward to a few hours of simply knitting away on my own. I told him to just take off and not worry about me and take the car and stay out as long as he liked... so he did. I waved him off and went and sat down and immediately realized that I had left all my knitting in the car that he had just driven away in. I thought I could fill the evening without knitting... I baked cookies, cleaned the kitchen, worked on X-mas cards...I miss my knitting! And I'm home on winter break so all my other knitting stuff is back at my apartment..Growl at myself! Sorry, had to vent.

So sorry to hear about your forced exile from your knitting. Think about it this way. Everything is done and now you can knit uninterrupted tomorrow.

Don't you hate when that happens!??

Maybe you'll get another day soon. In the meantime, look at all you accomplished!

I know how you feel. I brought home my knitting stuff over the break from college, but I accidentally left behind the little bag that had a Christmas present WIP in it. Thankfully, I had another ball stored somewhere else and a spare pair of the right size needles.

I can't imagine doing that, mostly because I have about sixteen different knitting bags. But sorry, nevertheless, that must have sucked!

I hate when things like that happen! My problem seems to be that, whenever I actually have time to knit, I either don't have the correct size needle, or I run out of yarn...and it's always a Sunday, so my LYS isn't open. (Not to mention that my "L"YS is an hour away!)
At least you got the house cleaned.

You have my sympathy this close to Christmas is not the time for mistakes and bad material management. Iím knitting happily along sure in the knowledge that I will have the third shawl of the year finished up in plenty of time for Christmas when I notice, within the last hour, that the last ball of yarn is looking pretty thin and 11 more rows to go. I canít go by the yarn store today because Iíve got to drive home to pick the kid up from the sitters because my wifeís truck is getting a new water pump. So half of today and most of tomorrow is shot. That takes close to 2 hours of lace knitting away from the project. It probably isnít enough to derail the project but sure pushes it close. This the second ďLeaf Lace shawlĒ Iíve attempted and I ran short of yarn on both of them.

I know it doesnít sound like much time but this is break time at work where I am left alone. I canít knit lace project with any distractions, that would be at home for instance, or I wind up spending hours trying to fix the stupid problems Iíve knitted into the project.

I was attending an Alice Starmore workshop in Poulsbo (actually a few miles outside of Poulsbo) and when I got back to the B&B realized I had left my knitting bag in the classroom. I jumped in the car and drove back out. Of course it was locked up tight, but I could see my bag there under the table where I had been sitting. I shook the door, checked the back, but they were very efficient and hadn't left anything ajar. Drove back to town, thinking I'd stop by Lauren's Wild and Wooly (she now has So Much Yarn in Seattle) and just buy some new stuff. Of course, it was past closing time there. Back to the B&B. Believe me, there is NOTHING to do at a B&B in Poulsbo after the sun goes down but pout.
