An Easy Choice (Yarn)

New Yarn! 
(happy dance!)
This is the easiest skein of yarn I have *ever* purchased.

Why, you may ask? Well, I'll tell you.
I went (for the first time) to our local foods market and the first thing I see (besides a little girl who wants to be our best friends... my 3 year old turned into Bambi and suddenly retreated right beneath my feet) is a basket with 5 or 6 skeins of yarn. 

This shop is all local, so of course I was going to buy local yarn. $10 a skein, not cheap, but hey, it's not about the price. 

They offered 2 (undyed) colors: Ecru or Khaki.

Duh, ecru! 
And here it is, it's internet debut...

I'm goober laughing at these pictures.
I just threw it atop a blanket,
but it looks like this yarn is from a professional photo shoot in the 80s.

Yards per Skein unknown, but it's quite a bit, as you see. 

I like the twisted parts. :)

Now what to make of it? Uhh...

The funny thing is, I wouldn't have picked this skein in a million years in a yarn shop. It's not very soft, it's "just" ecru, et cetera go the strikes against it. But because I had very limited choice and I wanted to get it (for various reasons), it was an easy choice and one that I'm immensely happy with.

Funny, less is still more, even when it comes to choice.

So "Yay!" for new yarn! And "Yay!" for an easy choice! And "Yay!" for local goods!
