I'd been feeling a little guilty about using my stash Silk Garden to knit that baby sweater last week. I know, why should I feel guilty when I used stash yarn to knit a gift for a good friend's new baby? But see, it was *supposed* to be a Wavy scarf for my sister in law's birthday which was almost 5 months ago. So really, I guess the guilt wasn't that I'd used the yarn for another project, but that I'd totally slacked and hadn't knit the gift for the SIL in the first place.
On Saturday the SnB splinter group girls and I took a trip out to Bluebonnet Yarns, the new LYS in town (well, north of town - it's a 25 minute drive). Everybody found something to buy except me. I looked at the Silk Garden and knew that I really needed to replace what I'd used and get going on knitting the SIL's scarf. I dug through the piles of SG they had on hand, but I wasn't wowed by any of the colours. I left the store without any Noro for the scarf and feeling kinda guilty. I dropped the girls off, drove home and wallowed in my non-knitting guilt (how's that for twisted - I felt guilty for NOT buying yarn.) As I pulled into the driveway, I checked the mail and wowzers if there wasn't a little priority mail box with the magic RAOK letters on it. Kirstin from Spinning Athena had sent me two absolutely luscious skeins of Noro Shinano in the perfect colours for the SIL's scarf. How serendipitous is that? Thanks doll!
