As disappointed as I was to have bought that bright red yarn by mistake, what a revelation it was once I started to knit it!
That color of the spectacular red poppies which spring up from nowhere around here when summer comes seemed to give the yarn an inborn, joyful energy, making it a true pleasure to knit.
I made another Peasy for myself with it, and I know that when winter comes, it'll give me the energy of summer poppies each time I wear it.
(It occurs to me as I write this that the first one I made was a black Peasy ... and so my Peasy sweaters are rouge et noire! I always love a French connection, so perhaps the yarn I bought by mistake was actually meant to be mine).
