Sometimes I find yarn from my stash that makes me wonder if I make yarn purchases while asleep. There's no other explanation. Really. Look at this:
Beautiful lace weight blend of silk and merino but the colour?? It's beyond me. I cannot understand how and why I have bought it. But because I'm me, I decided to knit it into Elizabeth Zimmermann's Pi shawl. Maybe the colour will grow on me? Or maybe it will be really striking and beautiful when finished? I do not know. But I really want to think that it *will* be gorgeous when finished.
Now tell me that this is reasonable thinking.
