First off, for Eye Candy Friday...
Sock Bug "Julia" that I bought at Sockdiva's Etsy store. This bag is large enough to hold a sock project+, and is way cute.
I, like many, have too much yarn. If I knit and felt it all, I could probably make a house, with maybe some leftovers for felted furniture. I'm more of a yarn collector than a knitter (more monster than human!). I know I'd never be able to totally resist buying yarn; yarn fasting is just plain cruel. However, I need to save money, and yarn dieting sounds less extreme. SO...barring any unforseen events (like a one-of-a-kind treasure), I'm gonna try to stick with buying one to two projects worth of yarn per month. (Project cannot be the size of a knitted house...)
On to the shopping damage for January:
Really adorable buttons with a cat playing the cello.
Sweet Georgia Speed Demon sock yarn in "Firefly". Got this stuff at the Point.
I have to make 4 dickeys (seriously, who came up with this name???). These are the Trickey Dickeys (.....) from E.Z.'s Knitting Around.
I am knitting these with Lion Brand Microspun. 100% Acryllic. Sigh... because I knit these last year for the same friend and her family. I used merino wool, which the moths in her house found delicious. Let's hope the moths don't mutate into radioactive acryllic eaters. Otherwise, I might have to learn how to spin fiberglass into yarn. Ouch.
