For the love of…

Dan checked the car and noticed that the thief also stole my rosary from the rear view mirror… I mean, really? You’re going to steal my rosary???

I thought I was going to get some good news…

I thought this would be a happy post stating I got my crap back. But it’s not. They ran the fingerprints from my car, and got a match. He’s a juvenile, so i was hoping they would call the mom, she would beat his ass and get my stuff. No luck. The mom hasn’t seen him in two weeks since he ran away from rehab. *sigh*
So now for me, it’s going to come down to going after the parents for the value of the stolen items, and the damage to my car. (chipped window, gouged roof, scratched door)

In some good news, my roller girls banded together over the weekend to give me a really sweet card with some cash to help me cover my stolen money. Then, a person I’ve never met before, saw my post on ravelry and stopped by the shop with some yarn and a bag for me. THEN, I wandered into Mass Ave Knit Shop and was presented with some lovely yarn and a set of bamboo sock needles from a lovely woman there who also saw the post on ravelry. Those are all good, happy things.

I’m just… sad. I am sad that someone would do this. I’ve been poor. Hell, I AM poor. And I would never break into someones freaking car! And I’m a little scared. This dude has my home address, my shop name and phone number, that makes me worried. We have a really good security system at the shop, and are now getting one installed at the house today or early tomorrow.

So all that knitting I was gonna post? STOLEN!

That’s right. Some asshole broke into my car tonight during practice and stole my knitting bag!

They got:
All of my tip money. All of it. I live off of that money so that really freaking sucks. I had just been stuffing it into my bag and totally forgot about it.
A brand new coffee Cambro that we need for a catering gig on Saturday. Brand new. As in, I bought it on my way to practice. Special order. Google them. They are not cheap.
My digital camera. That one hurts. That hurts really bad. I loved that camera so much.
My knitting bag. It was a big nice VS bag that I got a couple years ago. I liked it because it zipped.

Knitting Circles around Socks
3 pencil cases with all of my double pointed needles and notions in them. Including ones that my gram gave me. That hurts in my gut.
2 cases filled with crochet hooks. One my mom gave me with every size crochet hook on the planet. That also hits right in the gut.
A couple sets of circular needles from.. you guessed it. Grandma. I was sobbing when I realized all that stuff was in there.
An almost complete Sheldon.
Socks that I was doing 2 at a time.
Self patterning sock yarn.
Jawoll sock yarn in Harry Potter colors.
Several sets of knitting needles.
An almost finished dolphin I was making for a girl on our team named Fin Addict.
2 baby blankets I was working on for our friend Bill, who just had a preemie born baby that is in the hospital.
A couple of hats for said baby.
A bag of my make up. Girls are aware how this is a blow. It was Medusas make up and some MAC. That shit ain’t cheap.
This whole thing makes me so sick. I can not afford to replace this stuff, and you just know that they’re going to throw all of that knitting stuff away. It means so much to me, and nothing to them.

And yes, I know I shouldn’t have left it in there. I forgot that the money and camera where in there. My thought was, who the hell would mess with my knitting. And the doors were locked, the windows up, and it was daylight.

God. This. Just. Sucks.
