BUT....and I mean a big BUT...is that sometimes its o.k. to acknowledge that you have found that wonderful albeit fleeting feeling from some material source. I did just that yesterday....oh it was so sweet and I was so happy, I was dancing (sort of) and laughing and being just really silly because my heart was so happy and excited.....no I did not find Mr Right or fall in love at first site...at least not with anything resembling a human species. I rec'd a gift of yarn....oh not just any yarn...a gift of silk, alpaca, merino and ewe boucle. In the most beautiful colours and also so soft and subtle, you just want to maul them and hold them and stroke them, and feel them, ok so now it is bordering on sexual.
I have the most wonderful people in my life and I know and appreciate that fact all the time. Then sometimes they do something for me and I am just amazed at how really nice these friends are. Well, I had mooned over, pined over, and whined over some yarn I had seen about a month or so ago at a Yarn Fair, but alas I was strong enough to realize that it was not meant to be the two of us....that perhaps in another time and place our paths would cross again and we could be together forever....again I have moved in to the questionable area of sexual....really I am talking about yarn not men!!!!!!
A good friend gave me that yarn yesterday with the pattern to make the most amazing sweater ever. So I am tickled pink, and didn't want to sleep a wink last night. I took that yarn and spun it and wound it, and stacked it and then started to play with it....I mean knit with it. OMG I think I know how you feel in heaven....at least from a mortal point of view.
So, although it is material this happiness, it has lingered into this new day and will continue to arise in me a feeling of absolute devotion until I have completed the sweater....at least a good 50 hours of knitting I figure.....better than a man...he would never last 50 hours....Oh my I am bad!
So, for the moment, and I AM living in the moment, I am ecstatic....over the moon, swooning like a teenager over my new found love....I mean yarn. Take a look.....isn't he....I meant it beautiful......
