Help! Last night (a.k.a. very early morning) I have discovered a Yarn Deficiency.
One of my friends had a baby boy. The Brit Milah (circumcision) was this morning. So I set out to make him a hat at about 3 a.m. That was when I realized with horror – there was no proper blue yarn in the house! I went through most of my stash. No suitable baby blue in sports or DK weight. Later this morning I looked at the rest of my stash – it is under DH’s bed, so I could not get in there last night. No blue yarn. This is because I have not bought any since DD #3 was born more than 2 years ago. One lonely exception was a skein of yummy baby-blue cashmere I grabbed at the Maryland Sheep and Wool. And that was only because my friend Tamar had good forethought to let me know she had a Boy, while I was there. That skein was the last one left and I almost had to fight another lady for it. I guess I looked meaner (I was definitely bigger) because she gave in. This skein became my “Baby Beloved” Hat.
I am getting some blue yarn tomorrow. After all this IS an emergency.
