Lost my project!!
Just got back from a flight from Asia and realized that I left my knitting on a plane in Chicago! I've only been knitting for a while and this was my second ALMOST completed project. I had plans to felt this huge piece of wool to make a knitting needle case similar to the one on Paton's website. Also in the same bag were some really cool stitch markers that I picked up in a bead shop in Hong Kong and a new circular needle. Bummer!

So, if anyone boards a United 747 in the near future will you please look under your seat and see if my project is there? Thanks!

ugh! that's a total bummer. I'd call the airline and see if anyone found it.

I would definitely call the airline and/or airport! They clean the planes between flights so they may have put it in a lost and found. Keeping fingers crossed!

Thanks guys!
I called United at both airports (I had a connecting flight) as soon as I realized it was missing, but now it's wait and see. And honestly, it's not their fault; it wasn't as if they lost a checked bag.

I just needed to tell someone that would really understand my pain. Knitters know that it was more than just string and some sticks! :crying:

I left a stroller on a flight and weeks later they called me. LOL It was my cheapy umbrella stroller, and I had forgotten all about it!

So. . . maybe, you never know. It could happen.

I'm sorry that it happened.

And I know everyone else is dying to ask, HOW did you forget it? Im guessing you were in a hurry. <giggle>

When I flew a couple of weeks ago, I held onto my knitting bag like grim death. But then again, it had chocolate in it, too, so I'm not sure which I was more afraid of losing
