When I decide to begin a new project, the first place I go to is my stash. Like many of my friends and accomplices, there is enough stored away to keep me busy for a very very long time. Usually, hopefully, I can locate what I'm after. Not always. It's generally best to go hunting with an open mind, as in the picture above. I had no idea what I was after when I searched this time. The lovely dark chocolate is a Romney/ Border Leicester that is all that's left from, if I believe the receipt found in the bag with it, a 12 lb purchase at Rhinebeck in 2007. And, if I remember correctly, half went to a friend, another 2 lbs was spun and knit into a sweater years ago, and the last (I think) of it, about 24 oz. was carded with 8oz of that dark blue blend merino a few weeks ago.
