I have an uncontrollable urge to buy yarn.
I have an uncontrollable urge to buy blue* yarn (although the yarn I bought today was actually quite black…)
I blame it all on the Sock Summit reports (mainly the photos….)
No, I don’t have photos, I put most of the yarn away and try to pretend it didn’t happen.
I was so good, for almost a year I bought almost no yarn (it was quite a few months ago…)
I also bought Jared Flood new Made in Brookyen – A Classic Elite pattern booklet – I just had to have this book. I love many patterns in it. I think they could have made it larger, for the price they charge.
I finished another pair of socks last night and kitchenered and put in the ends today (this was a good practice. Note to self, try to remember it….)
I did take photos of the socks:
I really enjoyed knitting with the yarn. The stockinette is so uniform, beautiful.
I hope you all have a great weekend and that not all of you suffer from such a bad case of yarnitis.
* Do you also find yourself buying, for extended period of times, yarn in similar shades or one color family?
A few years ago, we were visiting Toronto and I went to check several yarn shops (Toronto is blessed with loads of lovely yarn shops – not very good for the budget but very good for the soul).
It was the first time I met in person Fleece Artist/Hand Maiden yarns and fell immediately in love. Only when I arrived home, I realized I bought the same colorway in different yarn blends of theirs (it was my red period then) and other skeins were in other shades of red.
