I'm officially insane.
I'm bringing enough stuff to a 3 hour class on designing scarves and shawls with Stephen West and StevenBe at Makers Mercantile, that I might as well just move in. See, if I have the wrong yarns, or forget to bring a tool, I can't just run downstairs to the Cave and grab something different, so I have to bring all the stuff.
I have 4 project bags. The green one (which I won on the 2013 North Puget Sound LYS Tour - Woot! yay for me and CathieC) has all the equiptment: my interchangeable needles, 2 extra circulars in size 1 and 1.5 just in case I think size 2 needles are too big for the right tension, scissors, stitch markers and holders, 2 notebooks (one with regular paper the other with graph paper), a set of color markers, 2 pens, 2 tape measures, a pad of post it notes... and maybe more)
The purple cat bag has the third set of yarns. Yes, I have put together another set of possible yarns. These are all from a giant bag of yarn I got at an estate sale. The knitter actually died 10 years ago, and her son was finally going through all her stuff and trying to sell it. I waited until the last day and he gave me as much as I wanted for free. Honestly, if I had agreed to take it all, I think he might have paid me. I have been really embarrassed for the Doc to see how much yarn is in the bag, so it has been kind of hidden... A lot of the yarn is textured or bulky, and there is a fair amount of acrylic blends, but I just couldn't resist. Anyway, for this possible scarf/shawl, I was definitely influenced by Wajio's Yellowstone River Scarf.
shaping the planet with way too much yarn stuff.
I just decided to also bring the latest pair of Simple Socks that I'm knitting for my brother in case I get there too early, so I have something to knit. Because I will be nervous just waiting if I can't knit. So now that is 5 bags. I need to leave before I think of another bag to bring.
