Last weekend I bought a skein of Lorna’s Laces Helen’s Lace at the Knitters’ Fair. I have been covetting and trying to buy Helen’s Lace for almost a year and this was the first time I actually saw it in person. (Remember, Burlington=Knitting Black Hole. No.Good.Yarn.) Needless to say, I snatched that baby up as soon as I saw it.
So… for each of the last three nights I have dreamt about knitting that yarn.
Yeah, I’m dreaming about knitting.
But I’m not going to knit it. Not yet. After Christmas. No really, I’m saving it for after Christmas. You know, when I’ll have more time.
Last night I dreamt I was knitting the Helen’s Lace (I was knitting the pattern that came on the skein wrapper) and when I put my knitting down, someone began unrolling the ball of yarn. !!! I was horrified, like, “Don’t touch my yarn, DUDE!” But still, whoever it was continued to unroll my ball of beautiful yarn, just rolling the ball everywhere like RIGHT ON THE FLOOR.
But in the end, I was vindicated. You see, the yarn ball unroller was sent to prison. The crime? Malicious Unwinding of Yarn.
There is justice in my dream world.
And maybe a message in my dreams. I seriously need to knit something with that yarn – asap!!
