Well, Duh.

Time marches on, and I just keep plugging away. Knitting helps to keep me sane, but then I do stupid stuff that causes me to realize that I’m barely holding everything together.
Case in point – when I was at Adrienne’s, she destashed 2 skeins of 500 yds each of Brooks Farm Primero. I carefully packed it up and shipped it home with my other haul from the Midwest Fiber Fair. When I got home, I brought the yummy yarn to work and then to Knit Together to show some of our regulars. A couple of them playfully tried to steal it away, but in the end, it all came home with me. Or so I thought. When I emptied my knitting bag a few days later, the second skein was nowhere to be found. I searched the house high and low, giving Robert a bit of a fright that I was so crazed looking for the lost skein; I e-mailed Avis to see if I’d possibly left it in my rental car; I checked the room at the church where Knit Together meets; and, I e-mailed my 3 friends begging them not to be offended, but asked if they’d snatched it as a practical joke.
No, no, no. The skein was nowhere to be found. I struck out on all accounts. So I did the only thing I could do, because I needed that second skein. Because I’d only bought 2 of Adrienne’s 3 skeins of this yarn, I e-mailed Adrienne, sent her some more money, and she mailed the last skein to me. I received it Saturday. In a fairly small mailer envelope, partly because she’d vacuum-shrunk it in a ziplock bag. Still, when I took it out of the bag, I thought, “Gee, this seems really small to me,” and I took it to the stash room to put with the other skein. The other much larger skein. The other skein that I now saw had two labels on it. Duh. At Knit Together that night I’d apparently taken the two skeins and twisted them together in one big hank. All’s well that ends well, I supposed, but I sure feel like an idiot for not figuring it out sooner.

  1. On the plus side, you totally got more yarn out of the deal!

  2. That’s funny! I forget I do things like that all of the time and then I freak out.
