Ok, I did it again.
We got another huge box of Koigu in at work today, and somehow, when I wasn't looking, all these skeins jumped into my bag and came home with me. REALLY! Of their own volition! They wanted to come.
I SWEAR I didn't go through each new color saying "Oh, I definitely need one of these."
I promise I barely even layed out color combos, thought up new projects, or tried to add colors to projects I already have planned out.
I certainly didn't say several times, "Oh, I really need this one," nor did I think for a moment whether I already had this color, or that color, since I know full well that each dye lot is different and so even if I had the same color number, it wouldn't look anything like the wonderful skein I had in my hands.
I also pinky-swear that I didn't infect others with my Koigu lust, and I certainly didn't convince a few people to take home some skeins of their own. No really! It wasn't me!
Yet somehow, 14 new skeins have joined the others in my stash. That's why I insist that they wanted to come, they're happy in their new home -- it wasn't me, I swear!
I think I need to take a nap. (with the Koigu)
(BTW but not related: We got a VK preview copy in the mail and this issue is AMAZING! Some of the best stuff I've seen in any knitting magazine in the last 5 years, hands down. It'll be for sale in a few weeks, you should definitely check it out)
Wow! What beautiful colors that chose you to follow home. I wonder what projects they will become (on their own, of course – smile).
Who can decide between all the different koigu colors, it only makes sense to buy as many as you can carry.
Yikes! Is this what I have to look forward to now that I’m working in a yarn shop? Ack!!!
I’ve recently found your blog and wnted to leave a comment. Those Koigu skeins look absolutely delicious! I wouldn’t have been able to resist them either had they been right in front of me :)
I’ll have to remember to check out the VK issue. Thanks for the reminder!

I’ve got some serious envy going on right now…
