On Thursday I left work early for a Doctor’s appointment. I finished said appointment and stood momentarily in the car park, relishing the whole “not at work anymore” hour that was ahead of me. Not yet dark, but certainly on the way, before I could finish buttoning up my coat my feet had started walking and making steps to the Yarn Shop. I walked into the yarn shop and took a breath … ahhh, lovely yarn. I spent ten minutes choosing. Not Sublime, not Lang Merino, not Rico Merino dk (lush colours but I didn’t want dk, not today) and then I decided. I scooped up my three balls of yarn and hurried them to the counter. Three fat balls of Rico Soft Merino aran. Red, pink and purple. Warm colours. Soft and warm.
I don’t have a plan for these yet but they are cheering me up tonight, when I think of the potential things that I could use them for. Things are feeling a bit tough tonight (I am cold and tired with a head full up of pipes) and it’s nice to have a little patch of soft, bright colour to cheer me up a little.
