special special yarn?

Sometimes i find it almost too easy to sell yarns i spin. The yarn design took seed in my brain and for me the creation of the yarn is the "finished product". The making of something with it is left to another creative mind. And i am okay with that. Sometimes.
Sometimes i have a yarn that screams what it wants to become from the very moment i begin spinning. I see the final product, the nuances, the stitch effects, a companion yarn, details dancing in my mind ...
Sometimes i spin a yarn that i know wants to become something bigger, but the project hasn't presented yet. Often these fit well into the first category and leave the studio to live and grow elsewhere. But a few, honestly just a few, become part of my so-called stash. I have an attachment for some reason. I can't let go of the yarn. I want to be part of its finished state of being. 
I think i have finally found a project for one such yarn that has been patiently waiting a ridiculous amount of time (we can measure it in years). Well, the project will be for part of it, anyway, it is a rather large quantity. Why am i sitting here blogging instead of casting on? Because i came to this conclusion when i am out of state without the beloved yarn! I even picked it up and looked at it yesterday while packing. sigh. i will be home soon and we will get to work, friend (:
I am also thinking a knit-a-long might be fun for this long awaited project ...
