I have totally fallen off the stitch from stash New Year's Resolution. Well, not totally. I mean, I AM stitching from stash, as is evidenced by this 6 in afghan square I designed and hooked for the HPKCHC Quidditch Team Spirit Game that is currently running. (I hope to post the pattern here, soon).
But this hasn't stopped me from buying everything in sight. I mean, I feel like I am on a buying rampage. I admit to being a bit depressed after visiting and helping out at my brother's house. And, while I was there, I had to buy sock yarn for the first March Madness round.
And, I wasn't sure what that round would be so um, I bought some extra plain sock yarn that could be used if the first sock needed a solid, or could be used to make a second Man Sock for SKA March challenge.
And the solid sock yarns were so cheap, on sale at the Jo-Ann's in Orange, CA, that I had to buy more of a different color.
And while I was waiting for that first Sock Madness pattern to be posted, I worked on my Orange Man Socks, but that wasn't enough, so I wanted to work on my afghan, but of course I didn't have any of the yarn with me since I went to California so unexpectedly, so I bought some of the afghan yarn and hooked about 3/4 of one of the squares (I am not showing that, because really? more of that afghan yarn? why???)
And then, I like my new sock knitting needles so much (both the Addi Sock Rockets, and the ChiaGoo Red Lace), that I decided to get another one in case I had 3 pair otn at the same time,
and while I was buying that new Chia Goo Circ in size 0 I just had to buy a full set of interchangeable needles (always wanted some, now I have some),
not to mention the Malabrigo yarn I HAD to buy for Malabrigo Madness since I had none, 0, zip, in my stash and how can I participate in MalMarch with no yarn?
Ouch. When I was buying the needles yesterday, I asked if the store (more about it in a later post) had any Malabrigo. They had some on order that was being shipped and should arrive this week. But, thankfully, for my sanity, they had none on hand or I would be posting photos of even more.
Are you getting the picture? I have fallen and I am not sure I WANT to get up. I love my new yarns and new needles.
shaping the world from a very deep place filled with new yarn and new needles.
