I am heartsick.

Canada Post may have lost my shawl, Tidal Pools.  It was travelling to KnitEast for the Fashion Show.  I sent it last Monday, express post 3-day delivery, guaranteed.  It has not arrived.

I say may, simply because there is the hope that it will still arrive, late, but not lost.  I  know that it is just a shawl.  I have the pattern – I could reknit and repaint.  But I won’t, my heart, quite simply, would not be in it.  Tidal Pools was my summer, now I am looking forward to the fall, winter and next summer.  I have my projects already in mind and I am choosing fibre’s and patterns and working on idea’s.  I don’t look back – I am always looking to the next project.  That is how I work.

Tidal Pools was special to me.  I had the idea for the shawl and started knitting.  This last summer was not the best, but there were a couple of stellar days, including a wonderful day with a walk on the beach with a young friend.  The tide was out and we shared the wonder of discovery.  The Sea-stars that day were amazing.  So many new wonders in my favorite place.  I painted the wonder into Tidal Pools.  In it are my memories of a couple of special days, shared with friends.  I have the pictures, but I can’t wrap them around me on a miserable winter day when I am longing for a bit of sun and a walk on the beach.

Enough with the whingeing!  Fini!

Happy Knitting

    So sad, and honestly, the first time I’ve had first-hand knowledge of Canada Post losing anything. I’m sure it’s “somewhere” and if truly gone, someone is enjoying a work of art.

    • Hi Joyce,
      We lost a parcel once before, but that was years (14 or 15) ago! I am also sure that it is “somewhere” and I hope that it will find its way back here! Fingers crossed for the next couple of days!

    So sorry to hear that it was late or lost. Hopefully Canada Post will at least find it and you will have it back. Such a beautiful piece of work!

    • Hi Linda,

      I have the tracking number and it is insured. But I would really prefer to have it back! I won’t be able to start a real search with Canada Post until Monday! Thank-you for the support!


  5. How sad. I know how you feel when you put your heart into something you make. Hopefully it is not lost, just late. My sister-in-law sent my daughter a book when she was in the hospital, from the US to Chile, priority mail. It arrived a month after she sent it! She said in general things seemed to have slowed. As long as you have the number you should be able to track it. fingers crossed!
