Missing in Action

I have been, all week. Just hanging around now waiting to go to the airport to get on the tin can home and still feeling sick as a dog. Officially my worst trip ever, I've seen little but the inside of my hotel and for two days as we had no power I was lucky if I could see that!

I'm always a little bit anxious before travelling a long way as the travelling itself and being away from my normal routines can be very draining because of the ME; this time that was no problem but right at the start of the week some stomach bug totally wiped me out and is still doing its best to keep me down.
Then to round it off my poor knitting has also gone MIA - see that beautiful Silk Shine up there, I started a Spring Forward sock in it on the way over and somehow I lost it and my beautiful Schrodinger cube bag when I dragged myself out to a meeting on Thursday. Oh sob, when I could just have done with a break. I've got one ball of the yarn left and I'm not sure where I can get another - do any of you know of anyone selling Regia Silk Shine in shade 150? I've been searching the web and none of my normal haunts seem to have it. Maybe one of you knows of somewhere before I start messaging the peeps on Ravelry that have it stashed and start begging! Thankfully there was another matryoshka cube for sale in Schrodinger's shop, right now that feels like the only good news I've had in a week! I am officially as grumpy as I have ever been. Grrrrrrrrumpppppy.


So, I will be soooooo glad to be home after this trip. Vancouver, hopefully I'll be back some day to have a proper look at you, the glimpses I've seen have been good but never treat me like this again please. Thank you.

Beejesus, Canada sounds painful. Wish I could go to there, though.

Ravelry is always good for picking up on yarn you can't find elsewhere - I've found odd bits of yarn that I need quite a few times!

Marianne said...

Oh no, I'm SO sorry to hear you were sick on your trip, rats!
Good luck on finding the yarn you're looking for, and I'm sorry, seriously sorry you lost your yarn,knitting, and the bag.
ACK!

Rachel said...

Wow--being that sick during summer...and on a trip to boot...is so not fun. And losing yarn, a sock, AND a shrodinger bag? Oy. Sorry to hear it was such a miserable time. I hope you are starting to feel better though!

StarSpry said...

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that you've been sick AND lost your knitting & Schrodinger bag :( I hope you feel better soon and are able to find more of that yarn!

Rose Red said...

Oh no! Not a good trip - is there any chance your knitting might turn up?? I hope so!

But Rav is certainly great for picking up yarn - you just never know! Maybe you could ask someone in a German group if they could pick some up for you (it seems to be much easier to get there)?

Oh, you poor thing! Being away and sick is always worse than being sick at home I think. And losing all that stuff to boot - bummer. Have you come across the ISO and destashing group on Ravelry? They'd be a good place to ask for the yarn.

Webbo said...

Oh horrid Vancouver :( I really hope you can replace the yarn - like others, I've found the generosity of Ravellers very handy at times.

How rotten that trip sounds. I hope you can get more yarn. Such a shame about losing the cube too. xx

Oh you poor thing. Hugs. Honestly, so sorry to hear Vancouver was not a good thing. It truly is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but they have had issues this past week...power blackout. I hate being sick traveling for work...the worst experience. Hugs again.

Getting sick away from home always feels so much worse and losing your knitting...

Here's hoping this week brings you more joy - and that elusive ball of wool!

Lynne said...

Oh, Sarah, what an awful week you've had. I hope you'll soon be feeling better soon.

Alison Boon said...

Oh how dreadful for you. I'm sure ravelry will be helpful. Wishing you a safe trip home and that you will soon feel much better once surrounded by your own things again.
