Lost Knitting

At some point during our WPPI trip, probably in cab ride to the hotel, I lost my knitting bag containing a half knit sock, addi circular needles and a tapestry needle. It wouldn't have been so bad if I didn't already have the other sock finished. It's been sitting all alone waiting for it's mate.

The hardest part has been trying to find the yarn. I originally got it on clearance at Ben Franklin and they no longer carry it. I found a list of stores where Skacel yarn is sold in WA and called 23 different yarn stores in the area but none of them had what I was looking for. Some even thought the Fortissima Socka yarn was discontinued. Things were not looking good.

3 of the 23 offered to call Skacel and special order it if they still carried it. After calling every store listed in a 30 mile radius of Redmond I decided to attempt a special order. I gave two of the stores my number and the first to call back was Cultured Pearls in Issaquah. They said they called Skacel and they had a couple of bags of the yarn left so they will be ordering it for me. yay!

I still need to order another set of Addi circular needles and a knitting bag. I should have another tapestry needle somewhere. I probably won't be able to get another bag with the same pattern since they are basically made to order and it doesn't appear that particular fabric is available anymore. Looking forward to getting this sock finally finished.
