...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.
