Today is the day!

Illanna comes down from NYC today and the two of us get to meet the Yarn Harlot. I didn’t make it to last night’s outing unfortunately cause I hate driving into downtown by myself or taking the train at night. Oh well 🙂

Today should be fun, I’ll be dragging miss I to Sophie’s, Rosie’s, and Loop for some yarn porn. We will probably also hit some vintage or funky stores along the way.

I was thinking of bringing a small knitting project, so we could knit on our downtime (maybe while eating or just sitting at the park), but I hate what I started. Correction, I don’t hate what I started but I do hate the yarn! I want a one skein wonder in red and cotton….hey I have that leftover red sugar’n’cream….wow this stuff sucks! I’ve only knitted a few rows and it feels nasty and looks wonky. Would it be terrible to throw this yarn away, instead of forcing myself to use it cause it’s in my stash? I would gladly give it away if anyone wants it (just let me know). I have 2.5 skeins of it. I don’t want to be wasteful, but I don’t want to knit something I’m going to hate wearing or knitting! What do you think?

Well, I’m off to get ready for today’s walk-a-thon.

I’ll post pics tomorrow!

    I undestand how you feel with the sugar’n’cream! I think it feels terrible in any kind of garment =/ . I only use it for dishcloths and purses.–Anais

    Sure, yarn is a resource. But so are your time and energy. If you hate it, I’d say give it away or trade it
