I need to get my bum in gear and start Christmas knitting...and the above is a step in the right direction! I finally caked two skeins - and tried to cake a third, but as you can see by the ball shape it was having NONE of the swift.
The light khacki colored alpaca is what will eventually become a scarf for Nate....it's just a trial trying to find a pattern and I have no clue how much yardage I really have....and I picked these skeins up at an alpaca farm in Maine, so if I need more....well, let's find a patter first THEN figure out what will happen if I need more yarn.
The colorful yarn is Sunshine Yarns Classic Sock yarn in Tea Party. This was a mystery skein I had purchased through a grab bag sale...and I think it's going to grow up to become Susie's Reading Mitts for Nate's mom. Maybe. We'll see. I'm still trying to find the perfect pattern for Janet.
It's nice to actually be able to pull yarn from my stash, and not go out and purchase yarn...which I've done a lot. But...since knitting I've grown a bit of a yarn addiction as I'm sure you can all relate...and I'm afraid if I don't start using some of my stash yarn....I will forget what I have and not use a really awesome yarn. And, with Stitches less than a week away....eeeeek!
So, today's Squee Sunday is about my love of yarn, and the feeling of triumph to pull something out of the stash.....so I can make room for more.
