The Year of Living Stashfully

I was feeling a little down on Christmas Eve, so I did some yarn shopping.

It was all on sale at Little Knits and The Dizzy Sheep. It was all semi-solids which I could use more of. It's Dream in Color Starry, Madelinetosh Sock, and Malabrigo Sock. It's just that I really don't need to be indulging myself like this. I've got a lot of yarn that I wanted as much as I did these and I need to start using instead of buying. I let myself buy a few more skeins of Cherry Tree Hill at the Supersock Store sale early this morning. (I bought all semi-solid, it was half price, and I get a Goodie Bag for being one of the early birds at the sale). That's it. I am not buying any more yarn for myself for any reason for at least until spring. I am not signing up for any more swaps that require me to buy yarn this year (upcoming Doctor Who swap is the only exception).

Ahh I love your blog - found it through NaBloPoMo. I love yarn too!

Malabrigo is my obsession, currently worsted. I am a little intimidated by Malabrigo sock, even though it's all so lovely! I think it's because I am having completion anxiety over finishing my first ever pair of socks ><

Happy knitting!

I love Malabrigo, too. If you like the worsted, you'll like the sock yarn. Try it for your second pair of socks and you'll have more fun. :)

Yarn shopping usually helps beat the blues! Best of luck on your yarn diet!
