good thing I looked harder...



Okay. By some standards, I have a lot of wool. By other standards, I have a mere drop in the ocean. But my stash is comfortable for me. From it I can make shawls, sweaters, socks, pretty much what I want. Yesterday, however, it wasn't big enough for me to make a scarf, it seems. I could not find a second ball of the Mille Colori. A second ball that I was convinced existed, but was no where to be found. I was going to cast off the swatch-scarf of Entrelac I had going, but instead, I just cast on another Entrelac scarf (in the bulky brown and blue - we'll get back to that later).
For some reason, I was drawn to the stash room (or "office" as my husband insists on calling it...) and thought I'd take one more dig for the Milli Colori. The missing ball that matched my Entrelac scarf/swatch. The missing ball that was SITTING RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME WHEN I WALKED IN THE WOOL ROOM.
Seriously, does over exposure to wool fumes cause temporary insanity? It wasn't there yesterday...

But at least I can continue on the scarf. I'm not sure 2 balls will even be enough, but I'm not stupid enough to believe I can make another one magically appear...

Yay! I'm happy for you that you found it! :-)

You have magic 'yarn appearing in your stash when you need it' talent! WOOT!

00000, you are good.

But yes, yes, yarn fumes do cause insanity. How else can we explain our stashes? That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I'm thinking you have superpowers that have not yet been identified... you can also probably find the bread and the peanut butter when no one else can,right?

Yea! You found it!

What was it I used to tell the girls? Did you really look? :)

When I read your previous post about not being able to find what you were sure was there I wondered how long it would take before you put your mind to finding it - 'turns out, it wasn't long at all!Congrats on your "discovery"!
