"Psssst. Hey. You with the needles... Ya wanna buy some yarn?"
I swear, everytime I go to my LYS, this is what I seem to hear. Why can I not come away empty handed?! Last week I told them I was over my limit. They needed to cut me off. This week they enticed me again. And now I may really be in trouble. I am taking a spinning class. Did you see me petting the boxes of spinning wheels when they arrived? They are so beautiful and somehow totally turn on my inner geek. Yeah, I know- you all think I am a born again Luddite or something (but really- would a Luddite have a blog? Nah...) But these wheels? They are such a marvel of design. They are efficient. They are made of beautiful hardwood. They whir....
The trouble starts Thursday.
In the meantime here are my latest "fixes" and projects:
Blue Moon Fiber Arts, Socks That Rock in Midsummer Night, Blue Moonstone, and Thistle.
Malabrigo. (also referred to as "knitter's crack")
Regia Bamboo. This I am using to knit the Sock Madness round #4 sock, "Mad Color Weave"
Here is a close-up:
I don't have a problem. I mean, this is all going to be knit into useful objects. I mean I can stop at any time, but why would I? I want to knit, I want to feel the fiber slipping through my fingers as I pass the needles into the hole and wrap that yarn around, not to tightly, hold the tension, hold it.. hold it... and ahhhh.
A stitch is created.
Yarn p0rn indeed.
