I was reading an unexpected message from a friend and had one of those moments of utter clarity: a thought I had not expected instantly felt not just right but compelling.

That teal-green Madeline Tosh yarn given me last Thursday by a mystery someone. It is, I suddenly realized as I read that note, exactly the color of… she would know why…

That’s about as much as I can say right now, other than, although I had yarns in my stash close to it, I didn’t have one that was exactly THE shade, but that one was. Perfect pitch.

Colors are so evocative of memories. Someone I know needs the balance of remembering better times and to feel someone cares, softness in the precise color of a hug, yes!

I just want the person who gave me that yarn to know that they picked out something exactly, totally perfect just when, though I did not know it yet, it was going to be needed.

And they gave me the push forward by making that color’s physical presence real to me to make it actually happen. Okay, hang on, let me get back to work on this, I’ve got about six more hours to go…

No coincidences. Bless you for hearing so clearly when your yarn speaks!

Don’t you just love it when a plan comes together? Even when you did not know it was a plan.

More Parker! More Parker!
Ok, I’m being piggish. Demanding. But he seems to get cuter with every photograph.

We were discussing how specific flavors bring back memories quite vividly – it makes perfect sense to me that specific colors would do the same. I’m looking forward to seeing what this becomes.
