The cashmere was expensive, even at a half off sale. And despite being a pretty robin's egg blue, I would have picked a different color if I had a choice. I did not - it was the only skein of cashmere in the entire store. It was half off. There really was no choice here. Cashmere needs me. It calls to me, begging to be knit, or worn, or simply petted.
