We’ve all decided that I don’t need more yarn but sometimes, I order yarn when I REALLY do not need more yarn.
I’ve started this sweater for Vince . .
I’ve made some good progress. That’s good. What’s not so good is that I could not find the rest of the yarn. I always – really . . always – keep all the yarn together in a project bag but I only had the gold skein and the blue skein I was working on. I looked everywhere . . for weeks!
Then I remembered that I took it all to MO with me last time. Did I leave some of my yarn in the hotel? Did I leave the yarn at the apartment? After spending more time than it was worth looking for it, I decided to order more. With Cascade, I’m pretty confident the colors/dye lots will be a decent match. I figured if I find the yarn, I’ll always use it – it’s Cascade 220 and I use a ton of that.
The yarn was scheduled to be delivered today (and obviously, it was delivered).
The colors look way off because they are down in a dark blue bag with our bad lighting.
This morning, before that yarn was delivered, I was looking for my black short boots. Vince said “There’s a bag of yarn with some shoes in it in the laundry room.” Huh? How come I haven’t seen it? I have been in the laundry room plenty but for some reason, I washed towels and dish towels from the apartment and put them back in that bag and it was my “take back to MO” bag and I never noticed there was yarn and shoes in the bag so all I was seeing were the things to go back to MO. I guess I brought it all back, partially unpacked it and started re-packing it without even noticing.
At least I didn’t buy more black short boots!
