I know today is Pup's surgery day but I don't want to talk about. I don't even want to think about it so I spent the weekend keeping my mind occupied by sorting stash and planning projects. When I found this one I realized I had another story to tell.
The Swish was replacement yarn for the Holm mitten project that I frogged because every time I picked it up to work on it I got hives...or so I thought.
Last winter I had spent a small fortune on this new Arne and Carlos yarn but since I thought it made me itch, I tossed it all in the trash thinking there was something really wrong with it. Looking back, we now know it was not the yarn but the M word. Pup first showed symptoms in early January and I started having issues in February-just about when I had started this project. I can't believe I tossed all that beautiful yarn but at that time I HATED it and wanted a scapegoat for my puzzling malaise. I wouldn't have even gifted it to my worst enemy. Thank goodness I didn't post about it at the time because it really is lovely yarn and I would have owed Arne and Carlos a huge apology.
Well..see you on the other side of our latest Pup drama-hopefully with some good news for a change.
