Dang it! Sometimes you just have to order yarn. You saw my post this morning. You know I tried to come up with yarn for a cowl for Addie’s teacher. It just wasn’t working. Someone asked about what colors she wears. I’ve seen her twice . . for about 5 minutes each time . . at school . . in jeans and a casual shirt.
I played it safe and went with school colors! Who doesn’t love their school colors . . really? Mine were orange and black and I still love orange and black and those are probably one of the worst combos. The schools in their town all have the same colors . . I think it’s red/gray but anything from black to dark gray to light gray seems to work.
These two colors will be perfect. I think all along this is what I had in mind and therefore, nothing I found was going to be exactly what I wanted.
I actually had a credit at Eat, Sleep, Knit so this, along with a bit of other yarn I ordered hardly cost anything. Just because I have more yarn than I’ll ever use doesn’t mean I can never buy yarn when I feel like I need it!
