Isn’t it amazing how certain colors remind us of certain things? Walking into Yarns Sold and Told this morning, I immediately saw some brand new yarns, Night and Day, from Euro Yarns. While there are several colors in the yarn display, all I see are the skeins of red/black yarn.
Growing up in Pittsfield, Illinois, I grew up cheering for the Saukees (named to honor the Indian tribe once located in the area) at all ballgames always dressed in red and black, our school colors. Even in all musical events, debates, etc, we always wore red and black. In fact, I think everyone in town wore red and black. When we were in Pittsfield recently, my sister and I purchased new Saukees hoodies just because of these memories.
So, in honor of the Pittsfield Saukees, I must purchase a skein of this beautiful wool blend yarn! See even my childhood can be remembered in yarn!
