Don't want to pay for it

Sad news. The red lace scarf that I made for my sister has gone walkabout.

She was at a party. Left it in the same place as her bag and coat. And only the scarf was taken. I'm taking that as a compliment!

So, Canberra people, keep your eyes peeled for someone furtively wearing the thing.

My sis is asking around and even putting up a poster at the party house. I hope it all turns out to be some kind of crazy mistake. Though I don't know how you take someone's hand-made scarf by mistake - a prank maybe? I've said if it doesn't turn up I'll make it again, or maybe a slightly different version. It wouldn't take that long, but then I always think that... and there are (as always) a few projects in the queue.

If it wasnt an accident, how despicable. What on earth do some people think?? How very sad.

Consider these canberra eyes peeled.

Oh that totally sucks... maybe they thought she bought it and can 'just get another one' without *thinking* at all. I will keep an eye out.

Lulu has been informed...

Despicably low act! (and somehow quite flattering to the knitter).

WTF??? Who could do that? I mean, yes, it's a mark of how beautiful it is but geez, that's so awful. I'd be heartbroken.

I am heartbroken.
Still thinking it might turn up.

There are no words. I know how I would feel, that stomach wrenching feeling. I will cross everything in the hope that it turns up.
