Upon waking in the wee hours this morning I remembered a dream.
I normally don’t remember my dreams, but when I do remember them they usually build upon something I was doing or thinking about the previous day. (Makes sense.) Well, yesterday I was thinking about making the Pegboard Lace Tunic. More specifically I was thinking about the yarn needed to make one similar to ShellularKellular’s (on Ravelry.com) version.
While researching many, many yarns I came across HandMaiden Fine Yarns Sea Silk. Take a look at those colors! I have fallen in love! Also, before falling asleep I was “daydreaming” of having a fabulously popular shop. I was at a craft fair and since I was so fabulously popular I could buy Sea Silk and create dazzling scarves to sell. It was great. But, alas, back to the actual dream… I was at a LYS near the ocean and had just pulled some sea silk from the ocean and spun it myself. (Note: Obviously, this yarn doesn’t come from the ocean and I have no idea how to spin yarn.) It was pretty horribly spun, very thick and thin and not in a good way, but the colors were delicious. Anyway, I went in to the yarn shop and asked them to wind it for me. The worker, who looked very similar to a worker in my own LYS, looked at my yarn with disgust and asked if I really wanted to pay to have it wound. Apparently it costs $20 to have yarn wound in my dream LYS by the sea. That’s about all I remember… perhaps I should have punched her for turning up her nose to my beautiful yarn. That may have made the dream a little more entertaining. 🙂 But maybe it’s a sign I should purchase some real HandMaiden Sea Silk…. hmmm… 🙂
So do you ever dream of luscious yarn? Or even better, have you ever had a dream about a project to knit or crochet or a pattern to write?

A note on Sea Silk… It is made of 70% silk and 30% SeaCell. Apparently “SeaCell” is a name HandMaiden Fine Yarns coined and it is comprised of 70% Tencel derived from pulpwood and 30% Tencel derived from kelp. I found an article on Tencel that explains the process of deriving fibers from pulpwood; however, it doesn’t mention the kelp process. Anyway, if you are interested in the eco-friendliness of Tencel or the process you might find this article interesting.
