Why do I struggle so much when using yarn from the stash? I used to do that with fabric but then I learned that if I use my very favorite fabric, that’s ok . . I can buy something else that I like better. I’m not there yet with my yarn stash. When trying to decide what yarns to use for the West Mystery, I kept picking up that lime. Do you know how I got that yarn? Last year during Camp Loopy when we were all knitting our fingers to the bones trying to win a skein of Wollmeise . . the prize for getting all three projects done in 2011, a blogging friend won that lime green yarn and knew I would like it and sent it to me. She sent me Wollmeise! And she wasn’t the only one. Another blogging friend send me Wollmeise that I needed to make a shawl that is next on the agenda after Camp Loopy and after this mystery.
But, that’s how the lime got into my stash. I couldn’t use it for a mystery! So, I dug through the yarn and came up with these two. Both are Wollmeise Twin.
The green is Pesto and it’s actually the yarn I won from Camp Loopy in 2011 and the gold/tan is Jeton. After taking their picture, I stuck the yarn over on the quilt rack and look how perfectly they match this quilt.
Perfect match, huh? Guess these are the colors I was meant to use!
Maybe my first clue will be in my email when I get up in the morning!
