I don't care how much of a stash I have, there is never, and I mean never, the "right" stuff in my stash when I have either a special request from a knitworthy person or a sudden knitterly inspiration.
Case in point: I made this cap awhile back and had the pattern edited. All we need to do at this point is photograph it and I can make the pattern available. I call it "Cable Down Easy."
It takes just one skein of Malabrigo Arroyo. But since Girlfriend has decided that she will not take it off for any reason except to sleep and shower, it is getting a little iffy. It's so iffy at this point, I'm beginning to consider a little motherly thievery might be in order.
Which reminds me of the time when I was a little younger than her. I had these dreamy white vinyl go-go boots that I wouldn't take off. One day, poof! They disappeared. They were gone, gone, gone. Years later, my mom admitted that she had stolen them while I lay asleep. They stunk so bad, she just had to for her, and for the sake of others.
Girlfriend is asking for a "moody" color, and although I have plenty of yarn that is in the correct weight, I do not have a "moody" color. So, what did I just do? I called my not-so-local-LYS and they are sending me a couple of skeins.
