Almost two years ago, the sound of my squeals of delight startled customers at a LYS. I had found just about the perfect Mardi Gras yarn, fingering weight yarn in a colorway called "Crocus Valley" by Gypsy Girl Creations.**

I wish I could say I had grand ideas for what this yarn could be. I didn't. The possibilities seemed so infinite that I couldn't even think of a single option.

The yarn has sat in my tub of Mardi Gras yarn ever since, languishing. And yes, I have a tub of Mardi Gras yarn. Doesn't everyone?

On Friday, with a pang of desparation to knit something, anything, for Mardi Gras, I fell back on my old standby, the Koigu Neck Cozy, of which I've made eight.

I'm happy to have it all in all, but I'm wishing I had taken the time to make something more inventive.
