So I’ve been having one of those weeks. I’m busy with a thousand rounds of client revisions, a trip I was counting on was cancelled, it’s Fall now but it’s 82 friggin’ degrees and I’m sick of summer, you name it and it’s made my Crank list big time.
So you’d think that a visit from Mr. Postman would be a big cheerer-upper, right? Especially when he brings YARN from GERMANY.
Let me backtrack a little. A few weeks ago a bunch of us went to KnitNY. We sat near the window where some knitted things were on display and one of them was this gorgeous wrap sweater from Rebecca.
Well, I had long admired that pattern and seeing it knit up in this beautiful color made me really fall in love with it. Amy did too, as she just bought the yarn there and then. But, it was almost $11 a skein (!) and they didn’t even have that lovely color.
They did have THIS lovely color but it was still a lot of money.
So I went home and did some research and found a great deal on that yarn ordered from Germany. By this time, I was in love with that rose, and ordered that. So, I finally got it today. And for a reason I just don’t know, they sent the wrong color. The color was marked correctly on my order and clearly wrong on the box. So, I should be totally disappointed, right? Especially since it would take forever to send back to Germany and get a replacement. And cost a lot, too, for shipping.
So, look what color they accidentally sent.
The beautiful green that they had on display at KnitNY. So, should I just take this as kismet? I was just MEANT to wear that delicate green? (I do, after all, wear and knit with a lot of green…) As much as love the rose color, it’s not the worst thing in the world. Opinions welcome.
