Yesterday evening I was looking in the stash for a ball of Trekking XXL sock yarn in shades of purple. I knew I had one, somewhere. I just couldn't find it.
I wanted it for the Tibetan Socks in Cat Bordhi's New Pathways book - not the Tall Tibetan ones which I am making from STR mediumweight, those are still on the needles - but the shorter ones with the fall-down cuffs, worked with the Trekking XXL held double. I feel a need for thick socks at the moment, with the temperatures as low as they are right now.
Anyway, I was looking in the stash. I did not find the purple Trekking XXL, but I did find - oh joy! - a whole extra pack of Louisa Harding Kashmir Aran.
I thought I had more of this stuff! I can't remember what I had in mind when I bought it, but I had been sure that I had a generous sweater's worth of it - except that when I was planning to make the February Lady Sweater, I could only find one pack. Not enough. I was puzzled - why would I have only bought one pack? 750 metres of aran weight doesn't go far with me. Surely there was more? - but no, I couldn't find it.
Until yesterday evening! Now I can have a February Lady Sweater in this lovely smooth sheeny stuff, if I still want to. Or Mr Greenjeans. Or a Central Park Hoodie. Or Cassidy. Or Ariann, currently the front runner - in fact I have a suspicion that's what I had in mind when I bought this yarn. I'm very pleased!
And this morning, I found the purple Trekking as well.
Things do work out right, sometimes.
