I always read whatever Clara has to say about any yarn - truth is - KR Thursdays are favorite days of the week for me. But Everyone knows that "As gawd is mah witnuss, Ah'll nevva buy yarn agin!" so of course reading about yarn at this point is merely rote habit. I have an intellectual curiosity about just about any yarn and will get a visceral thrill when reading about luxury yarns. Cashmere is a sure hook for me; silk, ditto. Merino is a staple in my life (and stash).

And then, there is the thorough approach our Missy C gives to any yarn she turns her mind to. This will always entertain and inform.

But it was that photo - that photo of the swatch in garter stitch that started the familiar salivation of lust! Immediately my brain kicked into calculations - How much would it take to make a fluffy cowl? What large lacy stitch pattern would grace this creamy combo? How quickly could I zip through something like this so the yarn wouldn't really ever officially be in my stash? Can I scrape together a little extra play money this month ... after all, it IS my birthay month.

Oh. Oh the palpitations! Quick! Where are my smelling salts.

Wicked Clara. Thank you for pushing me into Knitting Math this morning.

Ah, Bess, just one ball of the gorgeous Superior is enough to make quite a decent sized scarf so I'm sure you would only need one ball of each to make a cowl - and maybe a hat or mitts to go with it!

I'm the proud owner of one lovely, lovely skein of Superior (yes, even over in little old New Zealand we do, sometimes, get treated by some lovely little jewels crossing the ocean. No, I didn't send away for but bought it off someone who imports it - yay, I can get more if my bank account can stand the strain!) and I keep it in my cupboard taking it out now and then to lovingly stroke it's soft downiness. One day I will knit it up into a soft scarf to snuggle into, but until I find the perfect pattern I keep on patting...


If you always do what you always did, you'll always get what you always got.

Kind of like the synergy of a really good marriage, where our strengths reinforce one another & help to overcome any snags, making the partnership stronger than the individuals!
