… that I pretty much have no excuse for buying more yarn.
This past weekend, Melissa helped me get my house in order. As part of the residential hygiene program, I finally got my yarn into one location. No more skeins shoved behind the canned goods in the pantry cupboard. No stash under the phone table. I even emptied out the trunk of my car. (I think Melissa cringed a bit when I said I was going to get the yarn out of the trunk; I’d never actually mentioned that auxiliary stash to her before.)
As you can see, the results of this undertaking were literally monumental. And this photo was taken before that other yarn I ordered showed up in the mail yesterday. (You may also want to note the hand-knit cats toys dangling from the climbing tree, courtesy of my niece, Miss Sparkles.)
What to do with all this delicious yarn?
Lucky for me, my copy of Kim Hargreaves’ Heartfelt arrived at The Golden Fleece last week. Once I finish my version of the Sugarplum Shrug, I am casting on for Ward.
I haveâ€”surprise!â€”just the yarn for it: Malabrigo. I’m still deciding between Glazed Carrot and Golden Ochre.
Once Ward is done, Tess is next in line.
There isn’t a pattern in this book that I dislike. I do like some more than others. Some might flatter my particular figure more than others. Some might make for more interesting knitting than others. But this book has not a single loser! If you haven’t seen it yetâ€”check it out. If you have seen itâ€”which are your favorites?
