Mine. No Touching.

Monday, 9 June, 2008

Life has been busy (but unfortunately none of it has been exciting, mostly work), so not as much knitting has gotten done.

Most of what you see here was done over the weekend. Want to know a secret? I really like doing the heels on socks. It’s just so cool! With a few stitches you can make a tube turn in a 90 degree angle.

There has been a whole lot of yarn buying going on. Hooray for birthday gift certificates to Blue Moon Fiber Arts!

L-R: Kaw Kaw, Space Dust, Harlotty, Dutch Canyon

L-R: Mossay, Mochaberry, Mustang Sally, Oregon Red Clover Honey

L-R: Valkyrie, Tiger’s Eye, Thraven, Korppi

These are yarns I bought in stores in the last month:

L-R: Puck’s Mischief, Puck’s Mischief (in a different yarn blend), Waterlillies (the sister skein to what my socks are being knitted out of)

These are yarns I have either bought or traded other Ravelry members for:

L-R: Calico, Alina, Chickabiddy, Firebird

And finally, this Mill End I bought off of Ebay.

I am a lucky girl. I know this looks like a lot of yarn (and it is, although like I said gift certificates), but I don’t have any problem justifying it. My husband and I are huge homebodies. Knitting is my entertainment. We occasionally go out to dinner, but that’s about it. So if I’m going to spend my time knitting, I might as well do it with yarn I really love.

Andy says: ‘Yarn is my entertainment too but I don’t ever seem to get any.’

Whatever, you liar. This is what he does all day. This and flipping out over shadows.

And yes, I’m aware that is an ugly chair. It’s the chair I have in my craft room. I can’t get rid of it because it’s the most comfortable thing in the world.

    That is a serious collection of sock yarn. I think you’re hooked. And BMFA is great stuff to get hooked on. Congratulations!

    I’ve never used STR, but I’ve been dying to. I’m especially coveting your Oregon Red Clover Honey. That’s such a gorgeous, warm orange.

    Beautiful yarn and hard to pick a favorite…maybe Thraven! I can’t wait to see what you knit with it all.
