A little blog about me, knitting, dogs, and my twisted little take on life in general.
I have a plan......
It's a good one...It's just a matter of whether I can hold strong till it's all in place or will I be distracted as I travel down memory lane and wander along remembering what I was feeling when I brought this one home....curious yet? I'm organizing the stash this weekend........Really going to go through it and be ruthless about it......which is hard, I'd rather cut off a toe than part with my stash, but the truth of the matter is that the stash has the power right now, in all it's seductive wooly-silky-hand-painted-bulky-sport-lace-fingering weight blends.....I've given in to my Mistress and it's time for me to return to my throne as Queen of Pile....better than Queen of Piles....hahaha.
So, the trick will be to not become distracted by the power of the yarn and start casting on for something that isn't on my list for 2011 or worse empty out the crates, bags, boxes, and trunks only to become so overwhelmed that I faint into the pile only to be found days later sucking my thumb while fingering that luscious balls of cashmere that I had to have but have no recall buying....there's a lot of yarn that I blame the purchase on blackouts......most recently the 1440 yards of merino lace to be paired with the 6 balls of kid mohair/silk lace with a hit of sparkle in it......in the mean time I'm working actively on 5 things.
3. Clapotis for my mom - I know I know, she usually takes my shawls but I think of this as an offering to her that may keep her from swiping the next one she see's me in. You'd think living a few states away from each other she wouldn't be able to get her hands on mine but it's my own dumb fault that I bring them all with me to show off for her............this is also for her birthday but she already knows about it because I can't keep a gift a secret when it's for her.....
4. I'm doing a test for Kim and am very excited about it.........You will see it when Kim says and not a minute before, all I can say is that I'm making it out of yarn. She at least gives you a teaser on her blog.
5. I'm also doing another striped hat, Turn A Square by Jared Flood........
So that's what's actively being worked on, meaning that it's something I've touched in the last 48 hours....some more than others but I gave the blanket a real good going over Monday so it needs a break.......So to Quote the Yarn Harlot today....
