You’d Think I Had Enough Stash Wouldn’t You?

Yet I have purchased more.

This is sock yarn (surprise, surprise) from The YoYo, purchased at The Loopy Ewe. ain’t it purty?

yarn081408 240x160 Youd Think I Had Enough Stash Wouldnt You?

The colors are Carmel Macchiato, Masking Envy, and China Jade. This yarn is new to The Loopy Ewe as of this week’s shop update and I particularly like it because it is semi-solid, making it a good choice for more intricate lace and twisty stitch patterns.

And this is a skein of my beloved Tempted Good Grrl sock yarn, in the “Faded Love” colorway.

tempted081408 240x90 Youd Think I Had Enough Stash Wouldnt You?

Doesn’t it remind you of old, well-loved jeans?

But that ain’t all. When Turtlegirl announced that she was destashing earlier this week, I snapped up 2 skeins of Socks That Rock.

str081408 240x145 Youd Think I Had Enough Stash Wouldnt You?

I shall commence oinking any minute now.

Just In Case You Wondered . . .

You might have noticed that I have lately been posting a lot of pictures of my stash and writing lame poetry, but have had very little actual knitting progress to report.

This is because I’ve made little actual knitting progress. (Funny how that works, huh?). I’ve been having some spinal and neurological issues. I was actually told by my primary doctor to stop knitting until they figured out what was going on. While he might as well have told me to stop breathing, I have had to cut down severely on the amount of knitting I can do, not because I am behaving like an adult, but because I simply can not knit a lot of the time.

So I’m in the middle of my Tour of Pain, Summer ’08 edition (I’m thinking of having t-shirts made). I’ve done the testing and diagnosis portion of the programme and hopefully I’ll have some answers in the near future and a plan for repair. Too bad I’m well out of the warranty period.

I’m not telling you this in a bid for sympathy, but to explain the lameness of the blog recently. And the projected lameness of the blog in the near future. Hopefully things will be back to normal sooner rather than later, because I’m running out of lame ideas for blog fodder.

I do realize that this makes my recent piggy behavior with regard to stash enhancement somewhat ironic.

In the meantime, ooh look! A picture of some grapes.

grapes081408 240x160 Youd Think I Had Enough Stash Wouldnt You?

Lucy doesn’t have a care in the world, as long as she gets plenty of scritches!

  1. Doesn’t matter to me what you post Wendy. I just like hearing your opinions on stuff. Hope all goes well with the Dr. brigade.

  4. Sending you hugs and sympathy. Can I have a Tour de Pain shirt too?
    Let’s just say you have a fellow sufferer out here on the Left Coast!

  5. Love the stash editions! Sorry to hear that your back is acting up again – hope everything gets better soon!

  6. Your blog is tops w/me. Sorry you’re not feeling up to snuff. I’m sure all will be well soon. Love the latest acquisitions – esp. the China Jade – too lovely, but not as lovely as Lucy-Kitty! luv.m.

  7. Love the yarn! I’m hoping your not in pain for very much longer!

    Feel better, sweetie!

  9. “I shall commence oinking any minute now.” I had an awful vision of that “lady” doing the pig calling you posted the other day. *shudders*.

    Anyway – on to more important stuff – Love the new yarn acquisitions! I’m starting to appreciate the semi-solids more now also.

    I hope your back issues get resolved soon so you can knit again, and all will be right with the world. In the meantime, I will still look forward to your daily blog, no matter what the topic of conversation will be.

    Take care.

  10. Poor Wendy! Sending hugs and prayers – and if you need help giving Lucy scritches, I’ve got loads of experience!

    I’m sure we can help you come up with some blogging topics – perhaps a couple on the merits of Craig Ferguson and Alton Brown?

    Tammy/DarthKnitters last blog post..I’m still here

  11. Sorry to know you’re hurting and not up to knitting. Be gentle with yourself, allow plenty of time for healing (just been there myself), and know that your fans will still be here. Hugs!

    CatBookMoms last blog post..Counting my Bles… Er, Bags!

  12. Sadly you’re not alone, I’ve been seeing a chiro 3x a week for the last month and feel like I’ll be seeing him till I die, and maybe even then I won’t be straight again. And of course, the cure is worse than the disease and I can’t knit or do half a dozen of the OTHER things I used to do recreationally yet, at least not for long at a stretch. Maddening!!!! /grouses with you

  13. I’m sorry to hear you are not feeling well and hope your doctors figure out what is going on soon. To hear a doctor tell someone not to knit, I shudder at the very thought of it. I do enjoy looking at your new pretty yarns and find it quite entertaining. Please keep us posted. I will be sure to send healing thoughts and imagine you knitting happily and healthfully.

  14. My most sincere condolences on your health issues.

    If you need to take a blogging break, we all understand.

  15. You can oink all you want just don’t answer to the hog calling queen from CBS news. Love your yarn selections. I’m always open to semi-solid selections as my stash is mostly multi-color which is not suitable for a lot of the patterns I like. Take care of yourself.

  16. Hope you’ll be feeling better soon! At least you have plenty of pretty sock yarn to work with when you’re given the knitting green-light again… :)

    juless last blog post..Dainty Bess goes to 11

  17. Of course your are stashing while you can’t knit! What else can you do? I’ve been filling my blog with travel pictures, since I haven’t been stitching. I hope you will feel better soon.

    Kathryns last blog post..Post Denvention Report

  18. Oh Wendy, so sorry to hear that you are again having health issues. I hope that you will be feeling like your old self or even better in the near future. Love your yarn stash and your new colors are great. Just say hi if you can’t do more, we will still be here for you. Hugs

  19. Every Knitter knows if you can’t knit, buy yarn!

  20. I think there’s something about not being able to knit that triggers a “must acquire yarn” thing in some brains (mine included). When I broke my arm last summer and couldn’t knit for 6 weeks, I bought a ton of yarn. I think maybe it felt like at least I was doing *something* knitterly.

    Feel better soon!

  21. Susan L (knitsnknishes) says:

    I’m so sorry to hear that you’re having back problems again. My thoughts are with you!! Love the new yarns, too. I’ve been focusing on near-solids as well, lately, for the same reason. And I also picked up a skein of Tempted’s Faded Love. …Love to Lucy from me & my 5 critters!

  22. Wendy, Wendy, Wendy. You of all people should know that sock yarn does not count as stash.
    I hope you’re feeling better soon. I’m also guessing that being on the computer so much isn’t really helping the situation either. Please let us know if we can help you with anything: testing, proofing the book, thinning out your stash . . .

  23. Would it make you feel better if I’d come and knit from your stash? Kinda like someone coming to read to you? That way you wouldn’t feel so oinkish and I’d get to select some scrumptious yarn to knit. You could hold Lucy and watch me whip up something soft.

    That didn’t work for you? Well, I tried to help. We will still read your blog. Get better soon.

    Marions last blog post..Substitute Socks

  24. Well, BUMMER on the back/knitting situation. I liked seeing the Yo-Yo yarn and went back to TLE and checked it out. I wish the skeins were a mite more generous – 350 yards is a little skimpy with my big feet (and I like a leg that is about 7″). I guess I need to buy one of those things to actually measure yardage because I’ve had the experience WITH THE SAME BRAND and SAME EXACT PATTERN (and I count rows fps!) of having just enough one time, and running about 10 yards short another time. It has made me very leary of the 350 yard mark since I have to absolutely RECEIVE a full 350 yards (not 2 yards less!) to finish a pattern.

    Anyway….blog fodder. Maybe a revisit to some of your favorite projects and/or designers? It has been a long time since you’ve featured a sweater and if you can’t knit ‘em, maybe you can show us more pics and comment on them….?? Book reviews of old favorites (knitting or not). Or you could ask your loyal readers for questions and feature more Q&A days….

  25. Do feel better soon Wendy – my back hurt very badly today and I felt knitting withdrawl almost immediately so I can only imagine! thank you for responding to my email earlier today!!!

  26. Cathy Johnson says:

    Oh Wendy–please do not apologize, especially when your health is the issue. I read you faithfully every day and mourn the fact that you don’t post on Friday or Saturday; whine, whine–I know.
    I have enjoyed all of your posts, particulary the corn bread from November of ??; it is our new family favorite. Take care, please.

  27. Abby Baker says:

    Wendy,
    I’m so sorry to hear you’re not feeling well and on knitting-leave. I suffered a severe back injury 8 years ago that involved other things as well – including broken bones…lots of incorrect medical opinions led to my becoming bedridden for 2 years… I don’t know what your back pain involves but, I went through four months of daily spinal decompression – picture the elephant torture stories…tied between two elephants moving in opposite directions – extremely painful but, it got me out of bed… It might be something you’d want to look into – I went through Vax-D but, there are others on the market now too. (This isn’t fun but, is a non-invasive treatment modality.)
    Pain of any kind is no fun…I hope knowing your adoring public sympathizes and are more than patient till you get back on your feet is comforting – and in the meantime, we still love reading your blog – no matter what you have to say – and hearing about Lucy…and, it seems to me she’s either extremely jealous of your poetic talents or…has a really great sense of humor. :) (And your shawl is truly lovely.)
    Best wishes to you – in my thoughts and prayers,
    Abby

  28. I love seeing what you have lurking in your sock yarn stash! Gives me lots of ideas! =) I wish you a speedy resolution of your health issues so you can get back to knitting.

    knittinandnoodlins last blog post..Spring Forward Sprung

  29. Unless your spinal and neurological problems get worse when you knit, and better when you don’t knit, then you’re probably not doing yourself any harm by continuing to knit in moderation. I hope that your doctors can figure out what’s going on soon! I’m glad that you got some of TLE’s Tempted Yarn, because I got some “Teal We Meet” and “Grasshopper”. Both are fabulous, meaning that they’re even prettier than their photos.

  30. Your purchasing behavior is as one would expect it to be… some go with CD’s or DVD’s or antiques or shoes… ‘our’ partiality is yarn.

    Nancys last blog post..Growing

  31. Dear Wendy, I hope you feel better soon! Your blog is still great even with only a small dose of knitting.

    Allisons last blog post..Another meme?!?

  32. You’re in my thoughts. Hope you feel better quite soon and can resume your knitting. I love your blog.

  33. Sorry to hear about your health woes. Best wishes for a good recovery.

    Lucy makes good blog fodder, as does stash.

  34. I’m so sorry neurology is becoming an issue! I worked in outpatient neurology as an intern one summer, and I know that all that nerve business can be a pain. So I wish you the best. As for the blog, post whatever you want: I’ll keep reading!

    Hey Wendy,
    So sorry about the summer of pain…..Hope you will soon be on the road to recovery. LOVE the new STR!

  38. I rather liked the poetry!! :) I have found though that when I feel rotten, I have major back isues also, that adding to my stash is an instant mood enhanser. Brightens my day in increments if balls of sock yarn!!! It is only a bandaide though and so has to be repeated quite often!!! That stash might really grow!

  39. You know, your lame blogging is still better then my normal when I remember blogging. Sending lots of gentle hugs your way.

    Angelas last blog post..a quick update…

  40. Hi Wendy, So sorry your back is acting up again. I hope that you can get it resolved quickly and painlessly. Going thru back problems myself so I empathize. Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

  41. I’m so sorry to hear about your pain issues but I love that you gave it a title and a season. My husband got laid off one summer and only watched Oliver Stone and Steven Segal movies. I called it the Summer of Discontent. A proud tradition of making fun of our troubles. I’m honored to be in such good company!

    (P.S. Isn’t the additional stash a medical necessity? To provide cushion and support for your back? Yep, that’s what I thought.)

  42. Lots of prayers going your way. This is one of my big fears. I’d rather loose my hearing than my ability to knit. Kind of sick.

  43. Wendy, your blog is never lame. But if it comes to it, you could just give us pretty yarn pictures – Skein of the Day, or some such. And then there’s always Lucy.
    Here’s hoping you get to feeling better soon!

  45. Sorry your body is in rebellion. When I can’t knit much is when I stash the most. It looks like a lovely haul.

    Lame-o posts are better than no posts, says she who rarely blogs.

    anmiryams last blog post..Re-Entry

  46. Wendy,
    I think getting more yarn is a sign of hopefulness. You could store all the yarn in vases around the room instead of flowers. That would make the place very inspiring and cheery.
    Peace and Yarn,
    Annie

  47. Sorry to hear you’re having issues…that really does suck because usually when I’m not feeling good, the silver lining is that I can just chill and knit. But you can’t do that! Totally not fair. :( Feel better soon!

    I too added to my stash with this week’s Loopy update…hoping it arrives tomorrow. Among other purchases, I bought one of The YoYo lovlies…in the Eleanor Rigby colorway. Can’t wait to see it in person! :)

    Lisas last blog post..Back to routine…

  48. I join the long line of back, etc. sufferers, and sympathize, but I’ll still be checking here daily because your blog is a regular. So, maybe pretty pics of yarn in the stash, new yarn. How about knitting tips, or surveys of your readers. Anything will be fine, as long as you post pictures of Lucy.

    Take care, try a modest little Sauvignon Blanc, eat chocolate.

  49. TeresTala says:

    Tour de Pain veteran (chronic carpal tunnel syndrome) here….

    What do I do when I can’t knit? Why, read about knitting! Heck, in your case, you could write about knitting.

    (Is this a shameless plea for yet a third book? Why, yes… I believe it is!)

  50. Wendy,
    So sorry to hear about your health issues and hope they start to resolve soon. I think your therapy is perfect – nothing makes a girl feel better than finding a nice package of yarn in the mailbox.

  54. Dear Wendy,
    Prayers are with you. I log on everyday to see your post and Lucy of course. I love stories. So any stories you could tell about knitting as a young girl, what inspires you to keep knitting, and please tell us what you are now doing to pass the time on your commute to work.

    Melanie

  55. Write whatever you want. I’ll read it, or at least skim it. :)

    And feel better soon.

I am sorry to hear of your no knitting diagnosis and wish you all the best– I just regained feeling in my right side after a pinched nerve and that was bad enough!

    Darn! I was just thinking about your surgery last year and wondering if it had fixed everything! Poop!!! I was thinking about you as I transfered my “stuff” back into that gorgeous fabric bag you blogged about last year when your back behaving badly. I’ve not had a long drop purse in a long time and it seems that my shoulders like it. Too bad they didn’t like the cute, cheap retro print nylon bag that I found at Steinmart. No…they like the really nice (pricier) one you found!! I’m sorry I don’t remember the mfr. but it has the most gorgeous fabric in it! I hope that you can figure out what’s wrong and that it’s not related to knitting in any way!!!
    Feel better soon. I appreciate anything you blog!!!!

    Make the tee-shirt. I’ll buy one of those too. I guess I am still a “minion”.

  68. I’m so sorry about all that you’re going through!! I certainly hope that it’s all resolved quickly and easily! My prayers are with you!! As far as the blog, I love whatever you put in your blog!! But you need to think about yourself and blog when you can. We’ll all be here waiting! Get better soon!!

  70. Hey Wendy,
    Sorry about the pain and limitations you’re experiencing.
    The blog isn’t lame at all – and you’re still enabling :-)
    I wanted to learn toe-up socks and cables and knew you’d be able to help – I’ve just started the Cabletini socks. Thank you!!
    Also, Lucy and yarn pron could never be boring.

  71. ((((hugs))). So sorry to hear your needles have been ‘grounded’. I know how totally bonkers I got when I broke my wrist and couldn’t knit for a couple of weeks (until I took to the cast with a kitchen knife, lol) – my heart goes out to you!

  72. Theresa in Italy says:

    Well, darn it all. I am so sorry to hear you’re having health issues–was really hoping that the back surgery had banished them once and for all. You can post anything you want on your blog and I’ll read it, no worries there. (Heck, I’ll buy the T-shirt, too.) Just take care of yourself.

  73. sorry to hear about the pain, hopefully they’ll figure out how to get you up & running again.

    on another note, I kind of enjoy the yarn porn. I can only lust in my heart so in a way, these stash shots are a public service and we appreciate it.

  74. You just continue to take extra good care of yourself! Yet, I will send some healing vibes your way.

    And as far a being “piggy behavior.” When you can Do, when you can’t Prepare!

  75. Your blog most certainly has NOT been lame! Don’t worry about us expecting you to crank out a sock a day. That’s just plain not normal anyway. =P You take care of YOU and Lucy.

    Megan S.s last blog post..Yes, I’ve been a lazy blogger

  77. Sorry to hear about the problems you are having. I have terrible
    health problems also. I too keep buying yarn in hopes that I will be
    able to make something out of it. I can hardly make what I have.
    We are such addicts. I love your new yarn and I love your blog. Try
    to have a little patience with yourself; I say that because I have no
    patience at all. I think that’s one of my lessons here. You will soon
    have to buy stock in the plastic bag companies. Good luck with
    your problems. And you have Lucy to keep you company.

  78. That sucks about the back pain. I hope things get better soon. In the meantime – stop telling me about yummy yarn!! I do not need to enhance my stash (not that that has stopped me before). ;-) I love the look of that YoYo yarn. sigh.

  79. I know you aren’t vying for sympathy, but I am sorry to hear you are in pain. And the stash enhancement, while seemingly ironic makes a lot of sense. And poetry about yarn, how can one go wrong? I’m sure Lucy is holding up her side of the scritch bargan by offering healing comfort company.

    Jennifers last blog post..Planning for fall, and beyond

  80. You are affirming your optimism that you will feel better soon by enhancing your stash. It’s a matter of faith in yarniness, that you will get better and knit it all some day. And somewhere in the depths of your heart, you know you will feel better if you at least fondle some skeins and smell the yarny goodness.

    I hope you feel better soon. This pain thing is very annoying. Perhaps you need a sock knitting machine for therapy.

  81. If you’re not allowed to knit with it, you can still fondle and smell and re-arrange and plan and dream and design and … yeah, it’s still useful.

    Here’s hoping for a quick and speedy recovery.

    Daves last blog post..Math Blues

  82. Heh. I just got into trouble at the Stitch DC sale. The Georgetown shop had Katina Mississippi 3 on sale 60% off. I accidentally bought enough for two sweaters. No such thing as “too much sock yarn.”

    CraftyGryphons last blog post..Friday…

  83. Oh Wendy. I feel so bad. I know exactly what you mean when you said “he may as well told me to stop breathing”. :-( I just know you will be back knitting like the champion knitter you are real soon. I hope you feel better real, real soon. In the meantime, I have preordered your book from Amazon and CANNOT wait until April 2009!

    Loves and kisses to Lucy.

    Feel better soon, Wendy! Nothing makes me crankier than not being able to knit when I want.

    Wendy, I hope you feel better sooner than later. Not knit indeed…neither rain or sleet nor arthritis… well, you get the drift. Hugs, Jo

  86. Wendy,
    Write or don’t write. Just get well. Neuro problems are really tough.
    Confine your physical activity to scitching Lucy.

  87. BUYING yarn is almost as much fun as knitting, so we don’t think for a minute showing us pics of recent stash acquisition as LAME. We LOVE it, and we love ohhhhing and ahhhhhhing what you just bought. We are sending warm positive vibs your way for a sooner rather than later recovery. Take care. -patti

  88. Aw man, that stinks! I hope you get better very quickly and are able to scritch Lucy AND knit. Love the Caramel Macchiato, btw.

  89. I’m so sorry to hear about your back, Wendy – you don’t deserve to have this redux. Write anything you want…photo anything. I’ll return, again and again. And as hard as it is – don’t knit. We understand…Please – take care of your back!
    Many, many,

My warranty period is way past due as well… :)

    Thanks for the effort – it’s nice to read your blog every day, new posts are always a treat. Sorry about your knitting hiatus, I feel your pain.

    We love you, Wendy, feel better soon!

  94. You don’t have to apologize about what you put in your blog. Good luck with the medical and I’ll have my needles crossed for you!

  96. Wendy, I hope they can solve these issues for you soon. I myself have been dealing with some pain issues and had some testing done yesterday… sigh. It’s such a bummer when it gets in the way of knitting! It’s like breathing! I can’t stop!

  97. Oh I’m sorry to hear you’re having medical issues again. Seems like you should get a ‘Get out of Jail free” card when you’ve already gone through your surgery last year, it’s really not nice for your body to treat you this way!!

    I am sure Lucy will enjoy the extra time for scritches. I can hear her kitty voice “Your hands gotta do something, if they’re not knitting they’d best be scritching!!”
