Having dementia since I was in my 20's (not really...just very forgetful...I think) has never been a very useful characteristic.
Even worse when I lose something I value because of it.
I posted this already on the Herbert Niebling forum on Ravelry, but yes...on my latest business trip, I left my current lace knitting project on the plane in the magazine pocket in front of me (despite flight attendant warnings to check for personal belongings there).
In addition, I also left behind three sets of USAirways headphones, two 36" Addi lace cable needles and a set of reading glasses with a case.
I will try and see if I can locate these lost materials, but I honestly don't hold out much hope.
I wound off some bright pink thread from a cone at home, and I brought the two Ichida books and some double pointed needles with me to see if I might be able to get up the gumption to start another complex lace project.
Over the weekend, I finished the surprise knitting project, so I'll be able to blog about it sometime next week.
For the 2 or 3 of you who didn't know, Franklin made his way out to the Philadelphia area to do a photo shoot. He stayed with friend Carol and I got to spend a few short hours with him at brunch. Carol gave me the nice gift of the Tom Cruise unauthorized biography (did you know there are a few of them printed?) and I got some special M&M's from one of Franklin's fans who works for Mars Candy. Marilyn was supposed to attend, but got sick at the last moment...we missed her.
But at least Thaddeus was able to join us.
All in all, it was a good time, and I get to spend more time with Franklin just next month at the Men's Spring Knitting Retreat.
Speaking of which...for the guys that are registered for the retreat, you can expect to receive an e-mail from me tomorrow sometimes asking you to select your preferred workshops for the weekend.
