My Beloved is quite fond of quoting to me from Lonesome Dove: "You don't give up on a garment just because it's got a little age on it." True enough. Point in case is this cotton shift. It has been washed so many times the care instructions are no longer legible. I still love it. And, I still wear it.
My trouble was I didn't have a shawl to go with it. So, the search began for The Color (we've talked about how important color is). On the day I
became obsessed started looking, this Baby Cashmerino by Debbie Bliss made me happiest of all the wonderful colors in our LYS.
I'll readily admit that I've been spoiled to the tonal shades of hand-dyed yarns and the incredible variations in the Noro yarns; but, I think I will like this okay. It is just different working with a solid, no variation, perfectly smooth yarn.
So, we will see... More to be revealed.
I'm joining Ginny's Yarn Along today. I have a couple of good blog friends (Steph and Karen) who do this every week, and I am happy to join them today.

p.s. yes, I know some of you are thinking it... and, yes, this is but another diversion from The Unloved. ;)
