sometimes i think people are just awful.  night before last i was tired beyond belief......the emergency room was jumpin' all night long.  well, i carry my knitting bag with me to the time keeping station to clock out.  of course i had to set it down to free up a hand to juggle my id badge and book bag. apparently, i didn't pick it up when i clocked out and left.  security tape has a civilian/non-hospital employee picking up the bag and heading out through the atrium and loses sight of the culprit as he (*yep, it was a male*) passes by the outpatient and clinic pavillions.  so, there goes my latest hat-creation (done in lionbrand desert flowers) that i had just finished and the first third of a baby afghan for my best friend's impending delivery.  *sigh*  just had a sick feeling 'cause i just realized that the afghan was on an interchangeable needle set.   *ugh*  of course, those will be the size needles i must have to get anything done.  more sighing ensues.

It is sad to realise that the things you lost were precious to you and will mean nothing to the thief.  Half-finished projects and part of a needle set really don't have much monetary value.  As I get older I find myself feeling sorry for people like those who stole your knitting.  I think of the horrible experiences he had or the horrible parents he had to make him do what he did.  Fortunately, for every person like the thief there are a million wonderful humans who make the world run smoothly.  Thank goodness we see the thief through our eyes and don't see the world through his.

Wow!  That'll piss ya off, huh?  How infuriating.

Longtime faggot, first time knitter.

I can't understand why people would have the audacity to do this kind of thing. Totally senseless. Perhaps it's my upbringinging, my father was a policeman! I always hope that it will turn up in a couple of days as the person realises they made a mistake. always think on the brightside of life!

I can so relate to this as I had my knitting bag stolen last summer.  They not only stole the knitting bag, but broke into my Chevy Tracker by cutting the side vinyl window of the convertible.  I had 2 projects in the works, several Addi Turbo needles and all the gadgets that you collect over the years. I'm sure the thief was hoping for a laptop, iPod or cd player in it.  I can only imagine when they found yarn and needles.
