Haunted by Fiber
I couldn't sleep last night because I kept dreaming of Bouton D'or Ksar - a yarn I had seen yesterday at my not-so-LYS. It was a clearance yarn, and I knew I had remarked the name in my head for some reason but couldn't remember why. Not having a particular lust for aran-weight yarns (I go for laceweight everytime), I resisted and left. After coming home, I looked it up and saw it was a camel fiber blend, which I wanted to try. And then it haunted me.
I had bought some Koigu in a rich orange-red color. Previously, I'd had a skein of KPPPM in similar shades, but I'd meant to trade it away after I'd found better matching skeins for my Charlotte's Web shawl. It was a shame I didn't still have it because it matched what I'd gotten so well. This morning I dug out the trade-yarn bag, and discovered I did still have it! And then I remembered that the not-so-LYS had had a couple more skeins in the same color yesterday.
I lasted half an hour until I jumped in car and went right back to the not-so-LYS.
I may be poorer, but I have five skeins of red-orange Koigu, and some really soft camel yarn to boot. Poor, but very satisfied.
