A very dear childhood friend (and cousin!) asked if I'd make a shawl for her, a rather special shawl. She's a Texan, and she wanted the shawl (a light, feathery shawl, she said) to be in solid Texas Burnt Orange. I was unfamiliar with this color. I looked it up online. It's (I think) the official color of the University of Texas at Austin! I drove to Michael's with my laptop in tow, opened to the university's page with their color. Yes, this page exists -- a style guide for their school color.
Vanna had a nice color.
I went to Weaver's Webb, or as all yarn-addicts in the greater New Bern area call it: The Haven of Temptation and Wickedness and Deep Debt.
