Hand Maiden Helix
The Skein that (Almost) Got Away
January 12, 2016

The yarn that got away—the one we pass up, that's gone when we try to find it again. The more time passes, the more impossibly perfect that skein becomes.

For me, it was a remarkable skein of textured cashmere I stumbled upon at the Knit East marketplace in San Andrews, New Brunswick.
