Full disclosure: my stash down efforts have been tanking this week… Between yarn tourism, finding excellent sale yarn for a Citadel and receiving a giant box of yarn support, I’ve added 19 skeins this week…and only knit up 1. *Sigh*
On the bright side, we had an excellent trip to Colorado! The kiddos and I had a great time with family and it was nice to get away for a bit. I also got to visit the lovely ladies at My Sister Knits yarn shop in Fort Collins for shopping and knitting. Julie has such a wonderful selection of yarns, and everyone there is so friendly and welcoming–it’s a definite must see if you’re in the area! I picked up MadTosh and Hedgehog Fibers yarns for a new shawl design and two gorgeously soft skeins of Woolfolk fingering for a hat idea. I’m so excited to work on them!
But first–sample knitting! Two shawls, one looped cowl, a hat and a pair of legwarmers–that shouldn’t take too long, right?
So…maybe next week I’ll have some better news about the state of my stash. But even if I don’t, I’ll still be happily squishing all of my lovelies, dreaming of new designs and sneaking in a few rows here and there.
I caved and started the tweeny vampire novels again…it was bound to happen I suppose. I’m not proud of it… ;P
