If you were a * where would you hide?
I know I'm getting to 'that age' but last eve I was finishing up a hat and wanted to make sure the dpns I grabbed were all the same sz. Looked for the ndl gauge (I'm pretty organized) but nowhere to be found. I know I'll find it the minute I buy a new one. Are there knitting gremlins snatching our tools?

Hey, the gremlins got my gauge too! I thought I was organized too, but couldn't find mine when I looked for it last week.

The problem is they're just small enough to slip between something yet large enough to where you'd think you'd see or feel it. Argh.

I have a craft organizer (shape of a duffle bag) with yarn & accessories on a shelf in my laundry room. I put my gauge in the mesh pocket on the outside where I knew I'd be able to see it easily!?

I have two gremlins, one is 5 and one is 19 months!!! They raid my knitting bag and "play" with all my stuff and then I can't find it anywhere!! I have about 4 sets of each size needle because my gremlins like to drum....

I hope you find yours!!!!

Ah, well, Mr Itchy and Mr Mulder like to take dpn's, yarn, puzzle pieces, adn even vomit and hide them. I kid you not. Sometimes just getting new stuff is worth more than looking for the old stuff

Actually, the only way I'm aware of for finding that sort of thing is to buy a new one. Then it's pretty much guaranteed the old one will turn up! :-D

The gremlins take my stuff and then hide it in the couch

I've prided myself on being good at returning items to one or the other of my two needle rolls (lots of pockets for things like ndl gauge!). But you can only look there so many times before it dawns 'It ain't here!' I just rec'd a box of yarn today that, had I known the gauge was gonna go bye-bye, I'd have added that to my purchase. Interesting how accustomed we become to relying on our little tools.

I always have to look for something until I find it... I'm too thrifty!

They always say that whatever you're searching for will be in the last place you look. I beg to differ... I end up looking in the same places over and over again... and whatever is lost will be found someplace I already looked. Luckily I have friends who know this and "help" me to see what I have missed the first two times I searched.

Love them!
