Help the Herringbone Hat!

(Amber adores alliteration, if you couldn’t tell.)
I had my hat (in a plastic bag) when I left the house this morning. I wanted to show it off at knitting group tonight, and also take a picture. It’s really pretty: Lorna’s Laces Shepard Worsted in “Iris Garden” and Sublime Cashmere Silk Aran (in black). So pretty, so soft, so perfect.
So. I had it when I left the house. I took some trash to the dumpster, got in my car. Drove. I got out of my car; had a small argument with a guy in the elevator (Bob and weave is for when you’re in a fist fight, not a way of driving on K Street!), was greeted by a very friendly chocolate lab (which scared me at first because I wasn’t expecting to be hit in the hip at 7:30 AM, but then he was very friendly) and walked two blocks to the coffee shop … and no hat!
I retraced my steps, looked in my car, checked the elevator, checked the garbage can outside the elevator… no hat!
I’m going to check with the parking garage office when I leave tonight; maybe in the 1o minutes between getting out of the car and coming back someone took it to the office. Or maybe it’s at home – maybe it fell out in the stairway; or on the path to the parking lot…
Please, think happy thoughts for the safe return of the herringbone hat. I ::heart:: this hat!
