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!
