silly but sad
On Sunday I visited with a long time friend. I brought my needles and a simple project to work on during the car trip and such. At some point in time I lost one of my needles. They were the first ones I knit with and its kinda silly how much I liked em. I can not believe I was so careless and lost em. I have looked all over, in her car, in the parking lot and just can't find em.
I wanted to post, cause, well my husband thinks its a little funny that I would be so attached. He is not being mean or anything but I think he just can't quite relate. Surely this has happened to other knitters too?

I'm sorry :( Not silly at all. I have had things I assumed long gone turn up at the strangest times... maybe your needle will too!

I completely understand! The last one I lost was one of my dpn - my doggie thought it made a nice chewie. Not nice.

On the bright side - it's an excuse to go shopping for new ones!

I was just tearing my house apart last night looking for a lost needle. My husband was completely unsympathetic since I have like three other pairs in that size. He just didn't understand those were my FAVORITE size 7s! You need different needles for different yarns!!

The Yarn Harlot has a passage in one of her books about trying to find a lost needle in a rental car. She refused to let her husband return the car until she found it. Great trauma and frustration ensued because he couldn't understand how that one needle would be worth an extra day's rental.

She found it stuck in her hair.
