Please accept my sincerest apologies. I don't know why I left you untouched in my stash for so long.
When I brought my first skeins of you home, I declared how much I loved you! And yet, I did not knit you. But I quickly got more of you, like these two pretty skeins of Bella Coola, perfect souvenirs from a very special barn visit. And more of you just recently at camp.
I don't know why I waited so long. I'll admit, I thought maybe you were just too pretty to knit. Maybe I would make that gorgeous silk all fuzzy. But that has not happened.
No, instead, I've been entranced by the absolute lusciousness that you create (hey, that's probably why you are called Luscious Single Silk, huh?). The vibrant color, the perfect stitches, the fabulous pattern. All I can say is that I am sorry I have neglected you for so long.
I think I have picked the perfect pattern for you. And I haven't been able to put you down since I cast on. Seriously, I haven't even touched a sock all week! That says a lot.
And I'm soooooo glad that I have more of you waiting in my stash. I will not neglect you again!
