Falling Off the Wagon


Here's my story:

• my recent stash enhancement all started with the gorgeous Jawoll yarn. I won that skein from Ellen in September.

• my knitting buddy, Cheryl, gifted me the beautiful twisted hank of sock yarn - the color way is Christmas Cactus.

•  blog buddy, Katherine surprised me by sending two skeins of the sparkling Berroco sock yarn. As you can see, I couldn't resist casting on.

•  two balls of Crazy Zauberball sock yarns were purchased at the Fiber Fest. I think Cheryl's yarn spurred me to purchase yarn out of my usual comfort zone of blues and grays.

•  two skeins of Woodlander worsted called out to me at the Fiber Fest, too. I don't have a plan for the skeins, but they will tell me someday what they want to become.

•  I've been looking for a shawl pin, and I found a fabulous one at the Fiber Fest.

I've managed to enhance my stash considerably in the last two weeks, and it all started with Ellen and Cheryl. It must be their fault I've fallen off of the No Buy wagon, or at least that's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

  3. Wow, what gorgeous yarn! Maybe you got pushed off the wagon? But won't the results be fun? I love the way the sock is knitting up. Is that a 40" needle?

  5. I'm in love with the orange and grey Jawoll at the top of the photo, and there's nothing I love more than a Zauberball--any color. Makes me think I must knit socks soon. Great haul and you so deserve it!

  6. Aw, poor Ellen and Cheryl. lol I love the bottom right magenta and green combo. You sure make me want to learn to knit, but then I remember my experience with crochet.

  9. GOTCHA! Yarn is never WASTED even if you do purchase it. It isn't like a round of golf or a good meal .....you get the joy of the purchase, the joy of the knitting and the joy of wearing the knit up. WIN WIN WIN

  11. Really! How COULD you resist. All are lovely and the shawl pin is useful, so that's not stash enhancing. That's a necessity!
    LOL

  14. I completely understand. I get excited just looking at your colours! At least you do put your yarn to good use. Too much of mine sits there looking at me!

  15. Really pretty yarn, so I'm SURE you are forgiven for falling to temptation. Good thing there are no knitting or quilting police.
