While out on holidays, I also acquired one skein of the Red Heart Banana Berry for an on-again, off-again project from a couple of years ago that I had unearthed and re-discovered. You know how that is, right? Well, I thought that I might as well finish up the throw, since I had quite a number of the squares done. And so I proceeded to make big and small squares while sitting out by the pool, until I used up the skein of yarn.
As I unpacked the suitcase when I got home, I had a sudden urge to finish the throw with the squares I had made. I spent a couple of hours working on the dark blue borders for the new squares, then proceeded to lay it out to get an idea of how I was going to join it … and found this …
There’s a square missing! Seriously?! Did the dog take it with her when she jumped up on the bed? I searched everywhere for it, and couldn’t find any stray square. Well, you know what that meant … a quick trip to the yarn store the next day, for sure!
The next day … Yes, that’s two skeins of the colour I need, when all I need is enough for one more square. Why? I don’t know. I think I’ve trained my mind and hands to pick up skeins and balls of yarn in twos. And two more of the RH Watercolour for the African Violets afghan in progress.
Oh, except that the RH Boutique Unforgettable in Dragonfly was all by himself, so I had to pick him up to give him a home. And the RH Unforgettable Cappucino was for the other WIP that I had started during the holidays, and had used up already. So, only one of each.
And I don’t know yet what I’m going to make with these, but I just couldn’t resist those colours … RH Unforgettable in Petunia (the purples) and Sunrise (the oranges and reds). *sigh*
I’m on a yarn diet … again. And all because of one square.
