I found the one currently on my head on the floor in my closet when the avalanche came down on me. The avalanche of clothes, purses, shoes and assorted department store makeup pouches, the "free" kind, that fell down because the two boxes of yarn that used to prop all the stuff up were removed the other day in preparation for the Flash Your Stash event on April 1st.
April 1st...hmmm. I'm thinking the joke must be on me. Otherwise, I wouldn't have found the hairband. The "missing" hairband. Well, actually I didn't know it was missing, or at least at this moment in time I can't remember actually missing it.
I have so much yarn in the joint that I think I made one of these Morehouse Merino hairbands, lost it in the pre-avalanche mound of clothing, purses, and whatnots, and then made up another one without realizing that the original one was even gone...
I mean, half the time I'm in such a knitting and yarn blur, it could have happened. And I did make a pair of mittens that match at some point in between...
I guess it's kind of a good thing, though. As my grandma always said, getting old isn't so bad. After all--and if you're lucky--the memory sort of goes and then from time to time, the old things suddenly seem new again.
So I'm going to keep cleaning things out so I can put more boxes in. I gotta transfer some of the downstairs yarn upstairs so I can add some more downstairs. If you know what I mean.
BTW: I'm at the half-way mark on the Green Gable top. It's a fun knit. I haven't tried it on, and I know I should, but why would I listen to my own advice? And the Green Vest, which I'm going to call Fad-Classic, is on its way. Just have to go through with a fine-tooth comb and make sure that the numbers are right.
