Total Yarn Gluttony

Stash? What's that you say? Do I have stash? Well, I guess so... I guess that's whats in those bins upstairs. But, well, what can I say? And as for you... I know you want to see. I know that there are at least of few of you who will be feeling a little less guilty and a little better about yourselves at the expense of my weakness. I also know that one of you will feel a little justified in making your own trip to the LYS this weekend. See, this is what it's all about... Knitters helping knitters in any way we can!


Anyway, I have been coveting this Artyarns Supermerino and Handpaint Stripes at the LYS ever since they so colorfully stocked the shelves with it many weeks ago. After much careful thought and deliberation, I finally decided that it would be a good substitute for this sweater on the cover of YarnPlay. I hope to make a shorter sleeve version so we'll just have to see how it goes. (It's much darker forest greens in person.)

The following I blame exclusively on Wendy. Mmmmmmmalibrigo... here... at our LYS! I don't even feel the need to justify this... it's Malabrigo! (in Purple Mystery)



And, of course, we have not forgotten the significance of tomorrow...


GO BUCKEYES!

Get 'er done!






(I must however offer my deepest condolences to Michigan on their lost of their legendary coach, Bo Schembechler. I know he'll be missed.)

Did you see the hole in my Vesper Neopolitan sock.
I'm heartbroken and no one seems to care.
But I know you would care.

Boo hoo along with me!

That's terrible... we most definitely need to shed a tear for a hole in a handknit Vesper sock! I'm mourning with you Donna.

I am feeling SO MUCH BETTER about my own yarn buying. Thank you for your (over?)indulgence! I really like the colors you chose...were you thinking of Fall?
