YarnX(change): 1 skein Cool Stuff
My AmEx is still recovering.
One of my purchases was the utterly irresistible Cool Stuff, an odd 150 yard melange of fizzy and funky novelty yarns in shades of hyacinth and lavender and orchid that made me feel good just looking at it. I had a plan (don't I always??) for it, the ubiquitous skinny diagonal scarf that showed off the color/yarn changes to best advantage. (Did I mention that Cool Stuff comprises many different yarns of different textures?) I envisioned the recipient's delight when she saw the finished product, how much she'd love it, how even the $50 price tag was nothing compared to that.
Well, I changed my mind. Somewhere between my Patternworks euphoria and casting on, I discovered that she not only wouldn't appreciate a homegrown gift, she would actually feel offended by it.
Scratch one Cool Stuff scarf.
Scratch the urge to knit it for someone else.
Here are some stats:
- 150 yards
- Cotton, Viscose, Poly, Nylon, Silk
- 3-4 ounces
- #8US needles
- Custom dyed by PrismYarn.com
All in gorgeous light purples, lavenders, orchids, etc. (I may append a photo tomorrow.)
Anyway it's yours for the taking. If you're interested post a comment. I'll check back Monday afternoon and if you're the only taker, it's yours. If not, I'll log onto the handy dandy Random Number Generator and pick a winner.
Let the YarnX (and our Season of Stash) begin!
