Found: Crochet

  A mystery item! What could it be? I don't know, because this hand-made item wasn't made by me... It was found somewhere at a construction site, and Rip van Winkle took a picture to show me that night. But what is it? I'm not sure... Although the thoughts from the guys were truly impure. 


  My guess is that this crocheted item must be either an eyeglass case, or a cover for something like a shovel handle... Rip was on a job-site and found it in the sand. I find it a bit sad that the guys had to joke about it being a "warmer" for a body part (*SIGH* C'mon guys, grow up...), therefore nobody picked it up to return it to the owner. 

  It's sewn flat on one end to close, and open on the other. A bit too long to be a cell phone holder, but perhaps too narrow to be an eyeglass case as I first thought. It looks to be made in an acrylic yarn, though it's hard to tell with it covered with sand in a cell phone picture.

  The things I wonder more than what it is: Who made it? Is the owner missing it or was it discarded? And where do I get that yarn? Also: Since when does Rip van Winkle know enough about crochet to spot an item like this? Oh, how I wish he had picked it up so it could be returned...

Happy Crocheting!

  1. Ahhh, boys... Sigh... But on the other hand: have we really grown up? - just look at our craze for yarn... ;-)

    1. Haha, it's true. But I do try to make excuses about yarn being a business expense...

  2. Well that's a mystery! I don't know what it is made for... To put some pencils in it? A remote for TV? But why would it be out there? I'll sleep on it! ;-)

    1. I have seen weird items surface from the sand on job sites, but this doesn't look like it's been buried in the sand... My guess is that it fell out of a worker's vehicle. Perhaps a utensil pouch lost during lunchtime? Or some sort of cover for a tool... I wish the owner would see the picture on Facebook and say "hey, that's mine!" so we could know the answer! And then since the guys weren't thoughtful enough to pick it up, I'd like to make them a new one. :)

  3. That sucks that someone left something behind! Especially when we know how much time and thought goes into our projects and gifts.

    1. I know, right? That's the first thing I thought of - And that's why I wish it could have been returned to the owner.
