Truly, Madly, Deeply

Have you ever been so truly, madly, deeply in love with something that you couldn't bare to use it?  Fiber people know what I'm talking about.  I have Liberty of London fabric I've not been able to cut up.  There's hand dyed wool fabric that sits on a shelf, waiting for the perfect project that may never actually materialize.  I've got loads of yarn sitting on my Expedit shelves, ready to jump off as I peruse them for my next knitting or weaving project.

This is such a yarn:

NO project was good enough for this exquisite skein of mohair and wool loveliness from Mountain Colors.  Oh, I thought I had the perfect project a time or two, but no, back onto the shelf it went.  I fondled it, sniffed it, lovingly gazed at it.  But now........it's about to be turned into a woven scarf.  I can sense the joy I'll have as I throw the shuttle full of this masterpiece of yarn.  The colors are glorious, wouldn't you agree??!!  It's called Mountain Goat and the color is Wild Raspberry -- positively delicious, eh?

No, I haven't been drinking.

It is beautiful indeed! I think you can actually get a bit tipsy on wool! LOL This will make a woven dream of a scarf! I can't wait to see it.
