Lost tools ….

Has this ever happened to you?

I spent the better part of 10 minutes looking for my latch tool. I finally gave up and checked my email …. hmmmm…. how did that get there?

I’ve heard of knitters who wear an apron with pockets to corral their tools, others just purchase extras to use until the original shows up.

What’s the most unusual place you’ve discovered a lost tool?

  1. Having lost several darning needles and at least one latch tool inside my Toyota machines (big gap where the patterning drum is), I pop the clamps and shake the machine occasionally just to see. Pity the end caps don’t come off the Toyota machines without a fair amount of disassembly.

  2. I found a missing double eye needle stuck to the magnets on the sinker plate…then there was the latch tool I found in my hand under the paper pattern I was using (looked for tool for 5 minutes!!)
