Pure silliness

It was $12.32 for my 100g/650m and curiosity got to me.

Here, feel this, as I held it out to him after it arrived this afternoon. So soft. And look how shiny it is.

He smiled a Yes Dear and dutifully ran a hand over it for me.

I gave it the fragility test: see how easily a piece breaks off.

It didn’t, and I had to quit trying.

Not that any of that justified buying it, and I’m going to be considering awhile before actually diving into it. Maybe. It and I are still negotiating.

A viscose yarn that sold out before mine made it here from France: it is 100% dandelion. I knew I’d regret it if I never tried it.

Wow! I had no idea this even existed! Can’t wait to see what you do with it. What fun!

Wow, dandelion! Of course you had to try it.

Pure silliness and absolutely justified! While you’re negotiating, perhaps you could talk about dyeing it yellow? (Maybe that’s my silliness?)
