My yarn diet has gone the way of all diets. Uncommon Threads had a great sale today on Debbie Bliss! $3 a ball! $4 for Alpaca Silk (of which there was none left but thanks to Becky I have some anyhow.) So, of course, I fell for more moldy green Merino DK which is actually called Blue-green. And matches the blog colors :) So yes, dear reader, I stockpiled and now have to destash "archived yarn" since I bought an entire bag! Sweater land here I come... eventually. Hollis helped me compare yardage for a sweater and the merino dk has a whopping 110m/50g which made it a great buy (less balls of yarn needed). Yeah yeah, I know, I'm such a lost cause. DK weight, too, ohh I'll be knitting that sweater for a loong time. Maybe it will be done by next fall.
Also picked some up in mommy's favorite purple for ... the dog. I'm kinda wondering if I should use the Plymouth Worsted or Debbie Bliss Merino Aran to make the geriatric sweetie dog (no, not my mother. the dog) a sweater. Spoiled cutie.
The stash is now too big for my tiny IKEA box and with stitches west coming up (*pumps fist in air once again* even though it looks so dorky) I think I'll need another box. Not to worry, I have one in the closet filled with a few bags. Hah. Yeah, that's going to be reappropriated super-quick.
Sales aside, life goes on, the rain comes down, and homework needs to be done. And tea needs to be made. If it weren't so illogical, I really wish someone would open a yarn cafe. You know, sell caffeine and yarn? Ahh. Seattle-ites are lucky with their yarn cafes open at late hours. I would pay good money to buy needles/gauges/patterns/etc at 9 pm at night. Must go do some homework so I don't have to commit hara-kiri on my expensive addi turbo needles
