“an unrestrained and often excessive indulgence”
I’m a binger, I’ll admit it. Especially when it comes to colors, all of a sudden everything must be the same color. This past summer it was red; everything I bought, be it shoes, makeup, vases, or yarn, had to be red. Lately it has all been about purple. How else would you explain my new shoes?
and, umm, these?
My obsession carries over to my yarn stash as well.
I obviously have some sort of problem. To remedy the stash kind, really the only one I can fix, I started knitting the yarn up. After a two week hiatus I finally picked up the needles on Thursday. A sane person would have picked up one of their wip’s and gone their merry way. I think we can agree that sane I’m not. Sure I could finish a sweater I already started, but somehow I decided I needed a quick project (shh, don’t tell me how if I actually worked on things I started then they would be quick and finished. we don’t take kindly to that sort of talk around here). A sweater maybe? How about a cardigan?
I usually wouldn’t use a variegated yarn for a project with cables, but I love how this one is working out. This is Glampyre’s Bulky Cabled Cardigan that I’ve been wanting to knit for months now. The yarn is hpy’s 6ply bulky merino, which I originally was going to use for one of those UO/Craftster shrugs thing, but my hatred for ribbing kept me from casting on. I’m glad I didn’t, this sweater knits up pretty fast (I already have the sleeves on scrap yarn) and is giving me my cable fix. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to work on it tomorrow either (I’ll explain why tomorrow night) so maybe it won’t get done till next weekend or the weekend after that. >
