Here's the story of me and zpagetti:
When I was finalizing our recent trip to Amsterdam, it suddenly occurred to me that the yarn I'd been slightly coveting, zpagetti, was made in The Netherlands, and would therefore be a great thing to purchase there, yippee (since I certainly can't get it here....) I checked out the prices on line and decided that I'd buy say two skeins and grey would be a good choice.
Once in Amsterdam I checked out store locations on the zpagetti website.....there were several stores in the area near where I was staying and my friend decided that it would be the most convenient to purchase it at the department store V&D downtown. So we went to V&D, to the basement in the homewares department where it seemed to me the product would be sold, but there was no crafting or yarn section in site. Hmmmmmm.
On a whim I asked a salesman if they carried yarn, though it seemed like such a silly question amidst the pillows and dishes and candles......and he said "Oh, zpagetti? We did sell it, and I don't know if there's any left, but let me go check in back." He emerged with a package of two skeins of grey zpagetti and said, "here you go, this was the last one." Now really my friends, what is the likelihood of that? Deciding to buy two skeins of grey zpagetti while standing in my living room in Northern Israel, and then finding the very last package waiting for me in a department store basement in Amsterdam. Gotta love it.
So I guess for some reason that grey doily rug that I designed and made yesterday has some important role to play in the world, which is why that package of zpagetti was waiting for me? Maybe my whole trip to Amsterdam was for the purpose of buying those two skeins. We may never know, but it does make a good story, right? A just meant to be kind of story.
