Please don't chide me. Some quirks of personality and behavior can not be changed. Can not be controlled. Can not be understood.
The color has been disguised as has the band from the skein. In the past I made an accent summer scarf with this bit of silk. And, yes, I just went out and bought it again for another accent scarf. However - and this is a huge 'however' - this time I also purchased the same shade in a mohair/silk blend so that the resulting scarf will have one half pure silk and one half blend so as to function in a southern California winter.
Say it or think it. It matters not to moi. I am happy - and it is so me!
