I’m the messy-organized type. I have places for most things, though there are usually several piles lying around for a few weeks before those things are put in their true homes. This does not count the times when friends are on their way over to my messy house; that’s when things end up jammed into odd and often random places.
Which is where “The Case of the Missing Pattern” comes in. I’ve looked for a certain pattern in all the “usual places” for five days now . . . and it’s fruitless.
Here’s the nearly finished piece:
This cami was almost done, though it was too short, so I impulsively unraveled the bottom to add length from there.
The pattern is from last summer’s Debbie Bliss magazine. I know it’s around here somewhere. This is where the magazine should be stored:
I’m guessing I’ll find it right under my nose in a neglected knitting bag or (more likely) I’ll find it in some obscure place like behind my 11-year-old daughter’s dresser. The bad news is that I really wanted to wipe this project off the list in early summer so I could wear it; it’s made with the softest cotton-tencel blend. The good news is that I have plans to severely clean one room per week this summer, so it should show up sometime.
Any wagers on where the missing pattern might be? I’ll make something (could be anything) for the person who’s guesses most closely. And I’ll keep my camera handy to try to photograph where in the heck it shows up – even if that means embarrassing myself.
