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.
Magic.

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?

*hugs*

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.

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.)
