Wishing I was in Maui, but dealing with being here

Z is for……..

I wondered what word I could use for this post so I Googled words with the letter z which I’m sure most of us doing this meme did. I scanned the list to see if any of the words would jump out at me, most I couldn’t pronounce much like the words beginning with x. Then I saw Zanzibar. I knew this was a country near Africa but also knew it sounded familiar in a knitting kinda way. Oh, wait! I knitted something a few years ago with a yarn by that is almost that name! Over to my Ravelry Project page I went to find………….


The yarn is by Collinette and is called Zanziba (close, huh?). I was in love with the color and the texture of this yarn. I remember it being really expensive. I was a new knitter then and anything that was over $10.00/skein was a luxury to me. Then, a store was going out of business and I got a really good deal on it. Guess what, I didn’t like it knitted up!! I finally gave  the scarf and bag away to someone who said they liked it (but I never saw them use it!).

This concludes  our blogging through the alphabet meme. I’m sad. It was fun and sometimes challenging to write each week. Most of all I “met” some great bloggers. I’ll watch for someone to start another meme and perhaps see you there. I’m still doing WIP Wednesday and FO Friday when I have projects to share so I hope I’ll see you around!

  1. Congratulations on getting to the end of the meme! And I’m not sure I like that yarn knitted up either

  2. I hate when a yarn looks beautiful in the skein but not quite right when it is knitted (especially when it’s an expensive yarn).

    Congrats on getting to the end of the alphabet, I think there were only a few of us left by the end!

  3. I have yarn like that too – I love it in the skein but don’t like it when it’s knit. Congrats too on ending and I’m sure we’ll “see” each other around in the blogging world!!

  4. It’s yarn for stroking in the skein, but not for knitting up. I think. I have some like that. So good to have met you through this meme. I’m sure we’ll meet again.

  5. Colinette was my first yarn love (and I still love it!). An inspired post!
