MIA: yarn

This winter I thought about following in cpeezers footsteps (pun intended) and knit my way through the book: Around the World in Knitted Socks.  She’s knitting her way through the Joy of Sox.

Last week I ordered some yarn and the book (Around the World in Knitted Socks) from Knit Picks.   Ship date: November 3.  Estimated delivery date: November 8.

I got the tracking info and watched my yarn get closer and closer, then farther and farther away.  The process started near Columbus, Ohio (point A).  I’m only 299 miles from Columbus (point E).

Where’s my yarn?

From point A (Columbus, Ohio) to point B (Martinsburg, West Virginia) to point C (Capital Heights, Maryland) to point D (Greensboro, North Carolina)  to point E (me) is a total of 1,093 miles.  Over three times longer than it needed to be.  Of course, I don’t know for sure if my yarn is on its way to me yet.  Greensboro, North Carolina is the last known location I have.

They practically went right passed my house!  They could have called me and I’d have met them somewhere along the road!!

I was hoping to have this yarn and pattern book by Wednesday.  I’m not too optimistic right now.

  1. Hey! I am getting caught up on my blog reading. Weeks are too busy. Thanks for the mention of my blog, and I love the “footsteps” pun. Too funny.

    I meant to tell you that I just started my next pattern – the toe up on 2 circulars. So far – so fun. Thank goodness for knitting through this book or I’d don’t know when I’d tried that technique out!

    As I commented on your other post – I really want to join you on your quest through the book.


Your thoughts? I read them all.
