Do you remember when I made myself a scarf/cowl/thing-a-ma-bob? Then I promised 'finished' photos, and I didn't get around to it...
Well, let me tell you about the day I almost LOST my favourite scarf - FOREVER.
I was minding my own business, wandering down to the supermarket on a Friday afternoon. Three days ago to be precise. It was a bit chilly so I had my amazing scarf/cowl/thing-a-ma-bob on. It was so good at keeping my neck warm that it was too hot to wear inside so, after I arrived I took it off and put it in the bottom of my shopping basket. I wandered through the self-checkouts afterwards. Then wandered home and carried on with life.
The NEXT day I couldn't find my scarf.
I looked everywhere at home for it, but not very hard. Just in the usual places I would have left it. I finally gave up looking and sat on the couch thinking HARD about where I had it last. I got all the way up to when I took it off at the supermarket.
Suddenly I had that awful gut feeling that I'd left it in the basket. What if it's been taken? I wonder if they have a 'lost property' box? I was scared for it. I hoped like mad that I had left it there, and that they had put it safely away. PLEASE!
That day we went to the supermarket, and as we were so occupied with grocery shopping, I completely forgot to go to the office and ask about it.
We got home and I remembered all about it again. SO, another day of [extremely mild] anxiousness, hoping, waiting, thinking, praying. I was beginning to get used to the idea that I might just have to make myself another one.
But, I wanted my OLD one back.
Sunday, I went to the supermarket to get the hubs his special RedBull, and to ask about my scarf.
"It's 'yay' big and navy and a scarf and a loop and it's wool and it's crochet, lost two days ago"
I almost squealed when they pulled it out of the box and gave it to me! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
*insert happy dance with the lady behind the counter thinking I might have been bit mad*
SO, before I get the chance to lose it again, here are a couple of FINSHED photos...
If you have a look back at the original post about this scarf, you'll see it has four panels (one big square and two littlies). It felt too big and floppy so I pulled the edging apart and re-finished it with only three panels.
It was Pack n Save, Riccarton if any of you are wondering. They lady I spoke with was professional, helpful and I'd recommend that if you ever were going to lose something at a supermarket, then try them first.
