Diet THIS!

I am lusting after everything (excluding the roving - I don't know how to spin...yet) in this shop. Look at that glorious sock yarn! Too bad I can't do anything about it. I am on a self-imposed yarn diet for the next three months.

Please note that this excludes any negotiations or sales that were already in progress. Ahem.

This all stems from that fact that I have something very exciting in the works that I need to be saving for, and from the fact that my stash is officially out of control. I flashed my stash in a terrible manner a few posts ago, but I re-organized, so I'll re-post again on that soon. Once you see it, I'm certain you'll agree that this just has to happen.

Oh, how sad it makes me.

Ah,, diets are always hard.

I was going to e-mail you about the question you left on my blog about the sock yarn sqaures, but I couldn't find an e-mail for you.

I did just cinch up the hole in the center when I was finished knitting the squares.I debated doing this, but in the end, decided I prefered no center hole.

A yarn diet or sock yarn diet to be exact???? ACK! Not a bad idea. Maybe we should have a sock yarn swap sometime at one of those gatherings you have??!!!

Does RDLP fall under the category of negotiation already in progress?

Leah - yes! RDLP falls under that category. ;)

We are planning to have a yarn swap on a Meetup night once we find a new location. We'll see!

Oooo, that was mean, posting that etsy shop!!! Some nice stuff there.

Have fun at knitting tonight! Wish I was there, although the crazy beautiful weather here in Palo Alto makes me wish I lived here (er, except for the cost of living).

You really think you can abstain from buying sock yarn?????? We may have to lock you up! :)
