Which came first...the yarn or the coat?...

I have never gone into a yarn shop and have known exactly what yarn I was going to buy. I've always let the yarn "talk" to me. And from the yarn, projects evolve. And sometimes, after a project is completed, like a sweater or vest, I find I have nothing to wear with it, but eventually, without even thinking, I purchase a coat or a shirt that happens to go perfectly well with the knitted item.

Take in point the photos below:

I knit this scarf last year, because I loved the yarn; I just bought this coat a month ago and who knew????
So, in summary...go for the yarn, something will always match somewhere, at sometime!
