I bought some yarn yesterday on clearance to make a sweater. I was not planning to buy this yarn, nor to make this sweater that I picked out. It’s also an unusual color for me to pick out for myself; it’s called “paprika” and resembles the color of my Mango Snapple Shawl (which might explain why I picked the yarn since that’s my favorite shawl ever). But I think what’s most unusual about me making this sweater is the fact that summer’s footsteps can be heard louder and louder every day. It’s supposed to be spring, and instead it’s 80 degrees. And I’m making a sweater that I won’t be able to wear for another 7ish months.

The seasons and I are not compatible here in Arizona.
