It doesn't take much to make me happy. This is the lot of yarn that I only bought two of from Knit 4 Together earlier this Spring. At the time, I thought 2 would be plenty, cause I figured I do some sort of shawl out of it.
Then, I realized 2 was too many for a shawl. So I sat out trying to figure what I could knit with two skeins. It seems that there isn't much out there. I either need one skein or three to four skeins.
I checked on Ravelry and even sent a couple of emails to shops to see if they had the same dye lot...no response. Last weekend, when I decided I needed to order a couple of skeins of lilac and brown to finish the baby blanket, I figured I go out on a limb and order two skeins of the same color and take my chances that it "might" be the same dye lot. It's happened before with Cascade yarns. Worst case scenario, I would knit with one skein of one lot then knit with a skein from the other dye lot.
Guess what happened? Jack Pot!! Look what came from Jimmy Beans Wool. Two of the same dye lot of what I had. Now, I have four skeins to work with and I have a couple of sweaters in mind for it!
And look what was in my box from Jimmy Bean....doesn't take much to make me dance!
