It was an accident. Honest!

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.
I swatched.

Oh. My. God. I can't believe it!!! Haha, how did we both end up buying the same pattern? Isn't it lovely? Don't you hate the color they did it in?

I've stayed away from deStash for exactly that reason. :) But, if it hadn't been for your addiction, then you wouldn't be making that lovely scarf, and that would be sad indeed.

I love destash, never bought anything though.

I love the Pure yarn. It blocks amazingly. I just finished a scarf with it for a test knit and it was a dream to work with.

ooh, that's gonna be a lovely scarf :-)

Serendipity! That's going to be beautiful.

(I'm in a knitting group with the owner of Two Swans. I get to shop her trunk on knitting meeting nights. Ah, the joys of Seattle.)
