I made this beautiful sock. It my favorite sock. I loved it.

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 But -

Mommy lost her sock.


  1. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I am wishing you a very happy ending - but I SOOO feel your pain... I LOVE that sock.

  2. OMG that is too funny, I mean, I'm so sorry you lost your sock. All that work! It's not in my box. In the tub of yarnpossibly? Speaking of vacumes, check the bag

  3. Here's hoping it turns up in some random place really soon!

    Have you checked your critters' favorite hiding places? (Probably, but worth asking, right?)

  4. Oh no! That's dreadful! I would seriously not know what to do with myself!

    I have found lately that my things have been dissapearing as well, but I always find them when I'm not looking for it (my burt's bees has played this game with me at least a dozen times). Maybe it's a sign that you need to be concentrating on something else right now. I like the think that's why things like this happen. The sock will return when it's ready and meant to return.

  5. I'm so sorry. That's truly awful.

  6. sorry. Did you check under the car seat? In between the washer and dryer? Behind the TV? In the refrigerator? Here's hoping that you just put it someplace odd rather than actually losing it.

    Come out, come out, whereever you are!
