Unintentional Mystery Yarn
You know how you trade yarn with someone three years ago, don't make any sort of note about what the unlabeled yarn is or even its fiber content and then pull it out of the stash and stare at it, demanding that it identifies itself? No? Just me? Crap. Oh, and I also have no memory of who I swapped for it, bonus!
Mystery aside, I pulled this purty green yarn out of my sock yarn stash so I could have a nice pair of plain vanilla socks on the needles. I have a feeling that while I'm in my summer classes I'll need some mindless knitting, the amount of times the professor used the words "intense" and "intensive" in the syllabus is slightly worrying...so if I end up going crazy and you find me in the laundry room in the fetal position, you'll know why.
Ok, back to the yarn. Things I know for sure:
1. There is at least some bamboo or soy content, the texture and shiny-pants quality lead me to this conclusion.
2. It is not a sock yarn that I've ever used. It feels nothing like Panda Soy, Panda Cotton, Maizy, Comfort Sock, or any other vegan sock yarn that I've had my hands on.
3. The only details I remember about this yarn are that it's hand dyed and was only available locally (maybe the swapper was in Canada?)
4. If I ever put yarn in my stash without making a note of what it is, someone should kick me with some sort of oversized comical cowboy boot. Hard.
