If you were a knitting needle...

...where would you be? I have somehow managed to misplace one knitting needle. And I'm really frustrated because I'm all excited about my first serious knitting project since I was ten (pinky mauvy fluffy sleeveless cardigan!).
It's frustrating especially because I do this all the time - my attention is on nothing, I lose things the second I let them out of my hand. When I was a broody teenager (yes, I so was, I am amazed that I was able to hold off having a baby til my mid twenties) I had a sudden crisis when I realised with great certainty that the likelihood is that when I was a mother I would leave my baby somewhere, just like I lost every wallet and piece of jewellery, or large amount of cash I ever had. I would just let things go - I think I felt I didn't deserve them subconsciously.
The needle is just pissing me off though, what a random, silly thing to mislay. I really need to find a way to live life with intent a little more.


  1. Did you check in your shoes? Sometimes when I lose things I find them in my shoes...

  2. It's so nice for me to have found this blog of yours, it's so interesting. I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my PALAVROSSAVRVS REX!, and plus get some surprise. My blog is also so cool! Don't think for a minute that my invitation is spam and I'm a spammer. I'm only searching for a public that may like or love what I write.

    Feel free off course to comment as you wish and remember: don't take it wrong, don't think that this visitation I make is a matter of more audiences for my own blogg. No. It's a matter of making universal, realy universal, all this question of bloggs, all the essential causes that bring us all together by visiting and loving one another.

    You must not feel obliged to come and visit me. An invitation is not an intimation. Also know that if you click on one of my ads I'm promised to earn 8 cents for that: I would feel happy if you did click it, but once again you're totaly free to do what ever you want. That's the whole beauty of it all.

    I think it's to UNITE MANKIND that we became bloggers! Don't see language as an obstacle but as a challenge (though you can use the translater BabelFish at the bottom of my page!) and think for a minute if I and the rest of the world are not expecting something like a broad cumplicity. Remenber that pictures talk also. Open your heart and come along!!!!!

  3. Chieftan - I have no doubt your advice is well meaning - but - I'm wearing sandals at the mo...

    and what exactly have you found in your shoes over the years?

  4. I recommend going back to where you first thought it was. Always happens with me I search the obvious place and then spend a week looking everywhere else. I go back and find it where it was most likely to be.

  5. I left the baby at home one day when I was going to collect mt daughter from montessori, got to corner of road when I realised!

  6. It was probably the rigmarole of packing the bloody nappy bag, it's like an all consuming task isn't it?

    That's a scary one though.
