Okay, I'm not entirely a sad girl today but I do have a Missing Sock update and that is,
it's still missing.
Even though I have checked, in addition to less likely places, every inch of the bed - bedding, pillows, and frame - on which it was last seen, and gone through the entire closet into which it might have been inadvertently dumped.
(Actually I took everything out of that closet and went through it all, Thing by Thing, and managed to offload a ton of it before vacuuming all the shelves and returning the much-pruned remains to their place. So I can guarantee that sock did not make its way into the closet either.)
I really think it must be on a road trip by now, or calling quietly for its mate from the depths of.... could it be under the carpet I wonder? Surely I'd notice.
Also, while we're talking about sad things: yesterday I wound all that new yarn into balls and my sore arm got more sore from cranking of the winder thingy. So add ball-winding to spinning on the list of things I need to not do till I'm better.
(Frankly I don't think this is possible. I will have to aim for moderation.)
In good news: I do have four sets of the same yarn I used for the missing sock, and as I discovered late last night the 2.75mm square needles that just came available from my needle stash seem to produce a pretty good fabric with it. So as soon as I finish off some hats I need to do this week - more on that tomorrow if the light is good enough for pictures today - I can get going on backup pairs.
I'm not giving up on that sock though. It's gotta be around somewhere, right?
