In the Mailbox

Despite the dreariness of the situation I found myself in tonight (walking down a wet driveway, crossing the cold wet street, getting my gloves wet from my SOAKING wet mailbox) I found a wonderful surprise in my mailbox. The package instantly cheered me up. It was soft and squishy and I knew JUST what it was.
I had purchased some hand spun yarn from SDSpin last week. I found it on the gift guides and the price was great. I snatched up two orders and think... no, I know I'll be going back for more.
98% of me wants to jump right in and knit something with it immediately, but 2% of me says "slow down, find a pattern that you love, don't rush this". You see, this is only my 2nd and 3rd skeins of hand spun yarn (first skein is waiting on a project too) and I'm just amazed by how beautiful it is. Sure, I'll still purchase the economical acrylic fashion yarns from the local craft store, but I think I've found a new addiction.

Those are such gorgeous yarns! Colors like that should have a smell and a taste... But don't taste the yarn, you'll just end up with a fuzzy tongue.

Too late. I should have read the rest of your comment before having a taste.

It didn't taste as good as it looked.
