Remind me

That it’s normal to buy too much yarn once in a while. Even though I added quite a bit of yardage to my stash, I actually didn’t spend too much, so it evens out, right?

Remember the “Goldy” yarn I picked up last month? Well, I caved and got another two skeins for myself, plus a pretty purple striped colorway. (When preparing for the recent stash flash, I noticed that I didn’t have many sock yarns in purple!)


WEBS’s recent discounts and closeouts on sock yarn also proved too much for me to resist. I got some lovely 6-ply tweeds.


And two gender-neutral Jacquard colorways. I’m in love with the red ragg and am thinking of using it with one of Cookie A’s patterns. The red/purple on the right is my current love-hate. Sometimes I want to get rid of it, other times I think the stripes are a lot of fun.


(Oh, the basket? A gift from Mom. I wish I could tell you the yarn came in it, but nope.)

I also picked up these little 25g skeins from an eBay auction.


And er… um… I still await two more skeins. I ordered the Cherry Blossom when Sundara had a special run of this popular color. I also donated to All Things Heather’s recent fundraiser. My plan is to knit socks for donation with the yarn she sends.

    Webs! I managed to resist that particular temptation, although I have to admit to having several things in my basket when I decided to pass.

    Normal? It’s necessary!

    It would be abnormal not to buy too much yarn. You really could not call yourself a knitter that way.

    Oh no, I completely forgotten about the WEBS sale.

    And yes, perfectly normal! In fact, I think I’m off to indulge that perfectly normal behavior right now.

    That yarn you picked up on EBay is particularly gorgeous!

    Seems normal to me, besides you got some nice yarn. I like the red ragg and the red and purple. I almost bought some yarn from the Web sale and then changed my mind.

    I love all of the yarn you purchased. The Cascade is really fun looking – I will have to hunt that down!
