Yarn Envy

After posting about Attic 24 (Lucy's blog) I decided I needed a set of yarn with all the colors. And I mean ALL the colors. First I needed to take inventory of what I already had. The weight would be fingering/sock weight. This is the yarn weight I like best, with DK being a close second. I could see what colors were missing. I have the dyeable wool in the correct weight and all the dyes and figured my sister would enjoy the process so I coerced her into joining me for a dye day this Saturday. We would share the finished product, since each of my skeins is 490 yards, more than enough!!
Then overnight I changed my mind.
I faced facts. (Dope slap to the head).
I have a project to finish for a very nice reader which was kinda due last week (before Christmas) but I couldn't work on it, because my ARM WAS TOO SORE.

Duh. When will I learn?

So I rethought things ( good exercise for the ol' brain) and decided I would finish those socks, and then...put...away... the... yarn.

It will not dry up or get stale or fade away. It will still be there when my arm stops hurting. In the meantime I can do other things, which I am also all excited about doing.

And this is winter, a good time to get projects started, since it seems to be raining a lot and that keeps me inside in the toasty studio.

I have just the Rubbermaid bin for these beauties.


  1. Thanks for the link. What a happy place she has made for herself and family. It made me smile to just look at the colors,
    You'll get back to this when the time is right. There's a lot of winter left unfortunately.

  2. I just want you to know that even when you are in your knitting or painting phases, your blog is the first I check out in the morning! Most days before I get to work or when i first get there! Of course, I love your quilting times best, but couldn't go without my morning check of what you are up to!! Thank you so much!

  3. Hallo!
    I found your blog through ravelry, and I am very happy about this. I like your blog very much. I will visit your blog very often.
    May I link Your blog in mine?
    I wish you a happy new Year!
    With greetings- Kathy

  4. OMG !! Forget the socks and do more dyeing !!! When you do more dyeing, you do more projects and I just love to see those projects !! When you do more projects then more people want to buy your things and then you have to buy more yard to keep your stash up.... wait a minute - this all leads back to the sore arm point ... well what can I say ... since I'm that lovely reader, I guess you better finish the socks. But it's OK that you haven't finished them - I'll live - LOL :)
    Tammy V. (Debbie) in Memphis-Happy New Year MELODY !!

  5. I hope that you have a wonderful happy and healthy New Year filled with quilts, yarn, flowers, paints, and of course, color! I enjoy reading your blog so much. And thank you for the link to Attic 24! (Are you sure that you two aren't related?)

    Bingo is a gambling card game named by analogy to the game [url=]play bingo[/url]. Each player is dealt X cards and Y cards are dealt face down in common. The value of each hand is the sum of the values of each card, where the cards have blackjack values. The cards on the board are gradually revealed with opportunities to bet along the way. Bingo is usually played high-low with the pot being split between the players with the highest and lowest point totals. The exception would be if one player loses all his cards he takes the entire pot.

    One example of play is "Sixty Six Bingo". Each player gets six cards and there are six common cards. In this case there would be rounds of betting before any common cards are turned over, after the first two cards are turned over, after the third and fourth cards are turned over and after the fifth and sixth cards are turned over.

    While similar to the game [url=]online bingo[/url], the card game should not be confused with [url=]bingo[/url] cards, which are used to play bingo or housie.
