So I have a little addiction to deStash. I have a bad tendency to buy things there even when I don't know what I'm going to do with them. And there was this Soy Silk. Which I was curious to try. So I bought it.
At the same time, tempted by Dave's squirrels, I went over to Two Swans and ordered the squirrel pattern . While I was there, my eye was caught by another Fiber Trends pattern, so what the heck — I threw it in.
Serendipitously, the yarn and the patterns arrived on the same day.
The gauge for the yarn matched the gauge for the pattern. And the amount was good — 20 yards over requirements.
