All that effort wasted

June 6th, 2007 at 09:07 am

A while back I picked up a jersey in a thrift store for a dollar. I unravelled it, then spent the last couple weeks knitting myself a lovely warm bright red scarf. Today I wore it for the first time, and got some compliments. I thought I was pretty smart for a dollar.

And now I've lost it. Agghh, I must have left it in the lecture theatre. I was right! It's all Shakespeare's fault!

sigh, 16,000 students on campus. Will it fall into the hands of an honest one who gives it to the lost property office? Or will I see my scarf wrapped round someone's neck at the pub? Will it wind up draped around a lamppost, or used as a lampshade in a hall of residence? The possibilities are endless.

Fortunately I still have plenty of the red yarn left. I'm thinking of knitting a beanie, or maybe a bag.

    Kudos for being clever enough to use the yarn from an old sweater!

    Sorry to hear it's gone but you can keep busy knitting a new one. If you can please post some pics of the scarf once you get it done.
