It just so happens.

It just so happens that the week of February 21-25 I was in Toronto, and that I was there the weekend before and after those dates. It just so happens that I like to walk and although a fair distance, from where I was staying, I walked to Kensington Market. It just so happens as I was aimlessly wandering around, I came upon Lettuce Knits. It just so happens that the Yarn Harlot was not shopping for yarn there, that day. I just so happens that I can't have every thing my way.

It just so happens that two skeins of lovely purple Koigu followed me out of the store that day.

It just so happens that later that week I made a deliberate visit to Romni Wools. It just so happens that I found myself in their basement surrounded by discounted and discontinued balls of wool. It just so happens that Mission Falls has closed their door and Romni has put the remaining Mission Falls stock in their basement. It just so happens that enough 136 merino superwash for a sweater and one ball of sock yarn followed me out of the store.

It just so happens that yarn bought while on holiday doesn't count as stash.

So, it just so happens that I have not cheated on my yarn diet. It just so happens that I know you'll all agree with me on this.

Until next time
Yours in Yarn,
The Fibreholic

Oh it's cheating, but entirely understandable. No one is expected to leave Mission Falls behind on huge discount.

Even the Catholic Church permits feast days during Lent. You don't need to adhere with mindless grim determination to that yarn diet. Don't think of it as yarn. You were buying souveniers.

It just so happens that you are right, vacation yarn is not stash yarn. Especially vacation sale yarn!

It just so happens that you've had a lovely trip, and the yarn just followed you home, it was inevitable!
