Where Are My Keys?

When people come to the counter to check out and they gather themselves to leave, often their keys are nowhere to be found.

There could be a few reasons for this. Some people come in with a definite purpose. They are looking for a particular yarn, or they need help. Those keys are an afterthought the minute they walk in the door.

Others step over the threshold with the “Oh, Yarn Shop” and the keys are the last things on their minds.

I have noticed that the difficulty in finding the key ring is directly related to the involvement, intensity and length of time spent in the shop. I have always thought that most things were lost through distractedness. If we have not trained ourselves to habitually, mindlessly put our keys away in the same place every time and we encounter a diversion in our road, chaos ensues.

Of course there is another explanation, if you’re a believer. Because no matter how often we converse with the Knitting Goddess, the Knitting Gremlins will spend a lot of time in our shop. They take pleasure in moving things, hiding things and in general just messing with our knitting.

Then one day one of our “Searchers” at the counter said, “Your keys go missing in the yarn shop because they don’t want you to leave.” Hmmmm, I’m sensing a conspiracy. No matter, there are far worse places to have to spend a little more time than a yarn shop.

By the way, where are your keys?

Smile, relax and knit,
