I want to stop adding yarn to my stash and I really am going to try hard this year to knit from my stash. But, before I do that, I had to buy some yarn before the year 2010 ended.
I couldn’t resist the new colors of Sanguine Gryphon’s skinny bugga. From top to bottom: I got Two butterflies went out at noon,The very quiet cricket, Sandworm, and Shelob.
Then, I was lucky….very, very lucky to catch Loopy Ewe putting up Wollmeise Twin sock yarn. I got two skeins. The colors are Granatapfel and Gazpacho.
I was checking out the Yarn Harlot’s blog and saw socks made out of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in the pullman colorway. I just had to have it. I have cast on for a sock already.
I couldn’t resist Dream in Color’s Smooshy December Dream club yarn in the color candy floss. Actually, I loved the pattern and that hooked me to get the yarn.
Last, but not least, one of my knitting friends was knitting a cowl using Plymouth Yarns Mushishi yarn in the color 9 (red). It looks so pretty and it’s so soft, I couldn’t resist it either.
So, that was my last buying binge for awhile. It’s knit from stash time and I certainly have a lot of it. I could open my own yarn store. I won’t say that I won’t buy any yarn because if I can be lucky enough to get more Wollmeise, I wouldn’t turn that down and Numma Numma should be back to dying yarns again soon and I certainly can’t resist that. I didn’t sign up for any sock clubs. I will sign up for the Loopy Ewe club, but if I don’t get in, I won’t be real disappointed. 2011 seems to be about moderation in many ways.
