They were at the top of my bag

They’re gone!

The silk shawlette for my sister-in-law. The merino-silk and Malabrigo hats for my niece who’s dancing in the Nutcracker. Richard’s cellphone, too, although, that at least has a replacement showing up tomorrow (it was insured.).

They’re little things in the face of big things, and after a very small tear and catch in the throat at the loss, I pulled out the silk I’d somehow brought with me to see if my SIL would like it–which made no sense whatsoever when I was packing–and now we have something to look forward to together that we both know she’ll love.

I owed her a hostess gift. Now she’ll get to see me working on it for her.

What? Stolen from your luggage? Or fell out of an open bag somewhere? Oh, I would have a little cry, too. I’m glad your positive spirit prevails!

Oh no!

Cry a little, laugh a lot, pull out the needles and get with it.

oh no! All that time and effort.

If they were stolen, I hope their conscience is pricked. If they were lost, I hope a kind and honest person finds them.

Oh, my! I wish I had some words of wisdom, and yet I see that you have already said the ones that are needed. 🙂 Glad you have the silk, and also that Richard will get his phone soon…

Glad your father is on the mend, but gosh that’s heart-breaking.

Oh, that is nasty! But as Amalie used to say, “Things can be replaced.” I hope your dad is doing better.

Sounds very disappointing. I’m so sorry!

They may have been big things, but they were special.

Ow! That’s a good bit of agony. All that time and love knit into them. Even the cellphone since I’m sure he had everything set up just right. Well, ok, so IOUs and more knitting to do, but still and all, I hope they find a good home where they’ll be appreciated. Sigh.

Oh, no! You don’t say how, but part of me is hoping that they will come home to you. Or at least that the garments are well loved by someone.
