I bet friend Judy has been one of those people who really missed my not being able to blog on the old computer for a while because then I couldn’t tease her on the blog. 🙂
Once again both of us swore at the end of 2018 that we really didn’t need to buy more yarn. We both had plenty in our stashes to work on the projects we want to make. But of course, those projects change, new yarns come out, and let’s face it – buying pretty yarn is like a sickness and sometimes you just have to do it. It would be so sad if one of us was not buying any yarn and the other was buying lots. We keep each other company with our “bad habits” — tho buying yarn is a pretty wholesome habit, and what would I do if I didn’t have my knitting to keep my hands busy? And, there was a special coupon code so yarn was on sale – any yarn I wanted not just a specific kind – it would be wrong to pass that up.
So I ordered the colors above for a colorwork sweater I want to make – it’s Queensland Collection Kathmandu yarn which I’ve used before and really like.
Then I wanted to make a felted runner for my breakfast bar (yes there’s a ESK Yarnathon Badge for a felted project) so used that coupon code again for a second order. I’m going to use this Manos del Uruguay – Maxima yarn to make a felted runner. Love the colors in this.
and some of this lace yarn may have arrived earlier in the week – this will be used for a gift tho so not really stash enhancement.
and then I ordered this – LOL – I’m hoping to get rid of one wooden shelving unit in my sewing room that is wanting to fall apart and keep my knitting works in progress in this
I also plan to pull the yarn out of the plastic storage tubs for the next few projects I want to make and keep it in this storage unit so I don’t have to keep pulling tubs out of the closet to dig through every time I want something.
So I was already sitting here planning as I was knitting my various scenarios for rearranging things in the sewing room. If I get rid of that wooden shelving unit, do I want this new unit to go there, or on the other wall, and if I put it in that spot, then where do I want to move the TV to – and could I put the TV on the top of one of the metal shelving units I already have in the sewing room and get ride of the stand the tv is on entirely- or keep the tv stand because it’s got that extra shelf below it where the computer printer can be stored out of the way. Yes – so many decisions/possibilities in that one, long run on sentence I just typed. And see now I have you distracted thinking about storage rather than all the yarn I bought. 🙂
Yarn makes me happy – what can I say!?
Cute, free patterns also make me happy. A Little Bit of Sunshine is a cute stranded hat pattern that is free until a certain time on Monday. Love the design and the colors used in this hat.
