It was my first Better than Black sock yarn. It was sooo soft, wool and silk. It was a really cool Cat Bordhi pattern (Coriolis). It was knit on size 0 needles. It fit perfectly.
Then I made a second one, and when I got to the toe of the second one I went to find the first one to make them the same length and it is gone.
It's gone. I can't find it anywhere. I've trashed my house dumping things out, looking under furniture, looking through baskets of yarn and WIPS. It's not there.
I made several humiliating phone calls to movie theaters and Target stores asking if anyone found a lost sock. Nope.
I can't believe how upset I am about this sock. I was so excited to wear them. We still have no furnace and I was putting all my furnace energy into making my feet warm with those socks and now I'm left with 90% of a useless sock.
The only silver lining I can find is that Sean can always make me laugh. In all of his infinite, 5-year-old wisdom, he suggested "Mommy- you should go on knitting dot com, and type 'Mommy lost her sock' " Apparently that's what you do when you lose something.
So, well this isn't knitting.com. But -
Mommy lost her sock.
