It is snowing.

Not a lot - but it is definitely snowing, and here in the warm (supposedly) mild (usually) West of England, we don't get a lot of snow. And it is cold, too.

This means that I suddenly want to knit myself a big woolly pullover - after I finish Polly, of course. I'm not going to stop knitting Polly, I just want to have the next thing ready and waiting. You know how it goes .... or is it just me?

So, into the stash. I know what I want to knit - Pyrenees, from Rowan Classic Alpine, in some nice Rowan Classic Wool Tweed that I just happen to have. Except .... except... except I cannot find it. Or to be precise, I cannot find all of it.

I have found one pack, just where I was expecting it to be - but I know I bought 12 balls. I cannot find the two extra balls. I know they are there. I just cannot find them, and this is most frustrating. They have probably been put in a bag with something else, because if I left them on their own then they would get lost. Of course they would. Just like this.

I think I'll give up, and plan something else instead. If I do that, then they'll be right there on the shelf looking at me, I just know it.

The thing with the stash, is that you have to have the right attitude of mind.

You definitely have the right plan. As soon as you can convince them that you aren't looking for them any more they will turn up.
