Tastes delicious!


Look what came the other week! Five fabulous skeins of blue yarn. From Munich with love, courtesy of Taste of Germany by Ms. B of Knitters Uncensored. Thanks, Ms. B! Sogar besser als Weisswurst mit Senf (which I don’t eat, but Mr. Man thought I should say.)

It’s all I can do to keep myself from winding them all and starting socks galore, but I’m trying to be a good boy. Trying to finish the three other socks in progress right now (and the hat that needs finishing and the sweater that didn’t need to be started).

I was productive this past weekend and photographed all of my new yarn and put it into Flickr and Ravelry. Hopefully, you and me both will be seeing some of this yarn on it’s way to being something.

As I wrestle with my conflicted consumerism feelings, I ponder, “What if this is the last yarn I buy? How long would my stash last?” On sock yarn alone, I think I have a couple of years. There’s five sweater-worth’s of yarn, plus a (couple of) trunk-fuls of Crystal Palace goodies. Goodness knows, I have plenty of patterns in books, not to mention those living on the Interwebs.

It’s just an idea I’m toying with. No big declaration just yet. Ravelry is forcing me to see how much I really have, and at the same time, Flickr is showing me more yarn that I want. I blame you, HelloYarn!

Now will someone go buy this Rowan 4-ply from my favorite eBay source/dealer, so I don’t end up with it?

    I always have stash envy when you get new yarn. Those blues are absolutly lovely; I just started a new sock on 0’s in a royal blue like you jsut go and aside from taking 8 rows to centimeter I am in sock heaven.

    The only reason I’m not insanely jealous that you got into Taste of Deutschland instead of me is because I can pet it when I visit. But, watch out for October. I’m getting in!!!! Oh, and how can you NOT get that Rowan 4-ply. It’s a steal…..
