I really ought to be stopped. I mean, sheep are not an endangered species, are they? I thought not. So why do I keep adding to my stash?
I showed you all the Poetry in Stitches kit I got last week. I didn’t show you the buttons I ordered for the cardigan. They are the the same ones used on the sweater in the book.
Yes, they were ridiculously expensive. But they are gorgeous — handmade brass. And of course as soon as I knew they existed, I had to have them.
Lousy photo, but here ya go!
What else have I gotten recently? A pile of Cascade 220, from the recent Webs sale. Because I think I feel another aran coming on . . .
And let’s not forget the three balls of Opal I got last week — a couple from the Inspiration collection and one “ocean” color.
I ordered a set of Addi Natura dpns with that — never tried them and figured I need more dpns.
And some Louet Elements aran weight lambswool, for a great price, from Elann. Fifteen skeins of it, to be exact.
And a Dale of Norway baby book and pink Baby Ull to knit a little lace sweater for a baby that’s due in August — that should arrive in the next day or so.
Oh, and here’s something else I never . . . uh . . . mentioned. The kit for Jade Starmore’s Adult
Beadwork from Virtualyarns.com. The color is Rock Dove.
This brings me to a dilemma. I need to quit my job in order to find the time to knit all this. But I need my job in order to find the money to pay for all this.
What Should I Knit Next?
Apart from everything else aging in my stash, these are the front-runners:
a. AS Marina
b. JS Beadwork
c. Cascade 220 aran (in a pattern to be named later)
d. Dale of Norway Frogner (in black and olive Daletta)
e, Poetry in Stitches Leaf Cardigan
I am starting the baby sweater as my commuter/lunch hour knitting, so I don’t include that in the list.
Meow! I’m gonna chill this weekend!
