There are two organza bags full of lovely yarn that have been sitting on my shelf for about a year. I made sure to get a nice rainbow selection when I placed the order. Then I added several more skeins of a creamy white so I would have a neutral to place between each color.
Did I have a pattern in mind when I hit the “Place Order” button on the website? Are you kidding? I like to live dangerously. Who cares about dye lots? So what if I need 300 more skeins of the yellow? Pah! That’s for noobs!
