I meant to write this post last week, but I was buried under a mountain of softie bats (and a few other creatures I cannot speak of here – not until they become finished objects) so here it is now. Not that it’s particularly exciting, just another exhibitionist flash-o’-the-stash, or rather the latest additions which were gifts and therefore guilt-free. Well, the Koigu in the top photo is guilt-free; it was a birthday present from Matt. (Seriously, he is so wonderful.) The STR in the bottom photo was a gift to myself. I swore I wouldn’t get any more STR after wrestling with a skein of Fire On the Mountain for month and still losing – I could not get it to not pool. The plan is actually to use the Downpour to make a scarf with the FOtM, since it’s better to make a frigging scarf out of it than hurling it out the window as I wanted to do the other night. (I didn’t because I was sure that if I had done so, the squirrels would have hurled it back at me with a note attached reading, “We don’t want this either. It pools horribly. Take it back, effer!” For a second, I entertained the possibility of making another Chevron Scarf, but you know, been there, done that… next! I was thinking of maybe making that ribbed Noro scarf that I have seen here and there and fallen in love with over and over again. Okay, so far, one skein has been assigned a purpose. Now to get knitting!
P.S. – It is official. I am not buying any more yarn until the stash is half of what it is now. For reals. I mean it. Not kidding. I swear.
