My boxes from The Loopy Ewe are usually full of brightly colored yarns — oranges, lime greens, purples . . but not the most recent order. As luck would have it, I placed my order AGAIN so that it arrived on Saturday. Note to Self: Do not order from TLE on Wednesdays!
Vince was home and when we got the mail, I grabbed the box and stuck it in the floor of the car. We were headed to the neighbors and while talking to them and getting back in the car, he noted the little “Box of Fun” sticker on the outside of the box.
In the middle of talking with my neighbor, the conversation took an abrupt turn . .
Vince: No! Not another package from The Loopy Ewe!
Me: But . . it’s a BOX OF FUN!
Vince: I thought you weren’t buy anything else this whole year!
Me: But . . it’s a Box of Fun and it’s for a challenge!
My neighbor, not being a knitter, has no idea what The Loopy Ewe is and when I kept saying “box of fun”, I can only imagine what she was thinking I had ordered. Can I face her again?
The truth is . . it was a box of fun but boring yarn.
All gray and brown. No red, no lime green, no orange . . boring brown and gray. Winter must be about to get the best of me!
Seriously, I wanted the grays to go with my coat and the brown is for a shawl that I plan to wear a lot so I figured brown was a good choice.
