Sometimes a queue requires being interrupted

I’ve spent the last two days wishing I had some yellow yarn, but since I never wear yellow I don’t buy it either.

I was thinking about that again this evening as a purple beanie went slowly round and round in my hands during my Zoom knitting meeting as people were talking about the attack on Ukraine: where we could donate. Where we could hope to do the most good from so far away.


Moments after it ended, I suddenly remembered back when I bought way more than I used and what a mistake and a waste I’d thought it was at the time (and I gave some of it away) but… I went running to look.

I did still. There you go. The octopus leftovers. That blue, a bit darker in a different dye lot, for the sky, a yellow with a slight peach to it for the sunflower national flower. Superwash merino. I can dive right in after all.

You know if I walk around with their flag on my head a lot of people are going to ask for one.

Let me just finish off the top of that other beanie to get it off my needles and out of the way.

Perfect! Says one ghost looking person to another, I wear no yellow either. But I bought a charity crocheted sunflower pillow pattern and need to go buy some chunky yarn today. I’ll make an extra if you want to trade a hat for a pillow. ?

Wonderful! A quilter friend is sewing blue and yellow heart blocks, make a quilt to display from her front porch.

Things like that have a way of working out sometimes!
