Recently I learned about a shawl that a knitter had made that was subsequently stolen. I, as well as others, are sharing this story in the hopes that it can be found. Perhaps you'll see it on eBay or Etsy, for example. It's a beautiful lace shawl. A friend of mine made one of these shawls and it is gorgeous - one of the prettiest you'll see.
The knitter's name is Susan, susanlacewing on Ravelry. The project description on Ravelry can be found here.
Here is her story:
"If anyone from Toronto sees this shawl walking around Toronto let me know. In fact take their picture for me. This was last seen at TGH [Toronto General Hospital] folded neatly in a zip lock produce bag. I had just blocked it the night before and brought it to the hospital to show my husband. That was the last time I saw it. This shawl represents the journey I have taken while my husband had his double lung transplant. I am so upset to think someone would take it. It is/was the most complicated lace pattern I have tackled so far. It also had 1500 beads knitted in to it one at a time...sigh ... I have a very large SAD. Feel free to email me at email@example.com if you have any information. Thank you."
If you see it or have any information, please let Susan know. Or... pass her story along so that there are more people keeping their eyes open for it.
The picture, above, is being shared with Susan's permission. Let's hope for a happy ending.
