The Stash Dwindleth, Yet Hope Remains

Despite my itchings and cravings and yearnings for new yarn, I have been very good about not buying new yarns. It has not been easy, my friends. The stash is shrinking alarmingly and my knitting has changed because of it. I no longer browse patterns for inspiration and then go stash diving to find a suitable yarn. No, my Dearies, I have to first go stash diving to see what is there and then look for a pattern that inspires. Granted, there is still a little of everything. I have sock weight and lace. I have bulky and worsted. The sport weight and DK are all used up except a few cottons, but that is okay. I have wool and alpaca. I have superwash and cotton blends. It is just that they are all old news, uninspiring, boring if you will.

And that is why when I was given a $25.00 gift certificate to eatsleepknit, I went a little crazy.

Okay. A lot crazy.

Can you say cashmere?

And, while I was there, I got some sock yarn for a gift of socks for The Man (gift yarn=still legal).

Also cashmere.

Then, I broke a few rules in my yarn diet. I got these, also.

Hey, you know I had to get the free shipping!

Ahem.

And now back to your regularly scheduled Stash-a-thon.
