I’m sorry to say that one of my paint box socks, the ones I worked so hard on, the first pair of knit socks I ever made for myself…one has been lost.
I am 99.999% sure I put both in the laundry bag. I am pretty sure I put both in the washing machine. When I came home, someone else had put my clothes into the dryer. One of my socks was on the floor (yes, still wet. it is so nice to live with others who pay careful attention to these things.)
The other sock was not in the dryer (I checked. 4 times.)
The other sock was not in the washer (I checked. Twice. Before I moved the other clothes to the dryer.)
The other sock was not clinging to the clean, dry clothes. (I checked. 6 times.)
The other sock was not on the floor, with the dirty clothes, or in someone else’s laundry bag. (I checked.)
Anyone have any ideas where else I could try?
UPDATE: Rest easy, the socks have been found! Apparently, my mom put the socks on top of the dryer when she took them out since she wasn’t sure if they can be dried. We have a stacked washer/dryer, and I am 5’4″, so I didn’t see the other one up there. The one I had found must have fallen off during the wash cycle, since our washer shakes with some frightful turbulence!

Phew! I’m 5’4″ as well and have had similar things happen to me. Oh the foibles of stature…
wow. you are lucky that 1) you have a thoughtful, considerate mom and 2) you found your sock!

Thank goodness that had a happy ending! I’m totally paranoid about misplacing one of my (few) handknit socks!!! One trajedy averted!
