and Yarn

I got a sampler from KnitPicks months ago, the colors are lovely.
Shadow Spring Green Heather

This is Shadow in Juniper Heather.  They will probably either be scarves or something from one of the One Skein books.

This video is a sneak peak at a Lost scene with Kate & Aaron so if you don’t wanna know skip it and head down to the yarn.

I bought this to make Jeannie.

One week away! OMG! I can NOT wait! I some theories about what is going to happen.  If you haven’t heard they are replaying last weeks episode first and there is supposed to be some new footage!

One of my LYS was having a trunk show of Frog Tree a couple of weeks ago and I loaded up. It was so hard not to get more. The colors were just amazing. I finally settle on this red, but everything was just so stunning. I do already have a pattern for this picked up. This was part of my last purchase before the yarn diet started.

You guys I have a problem. I know some of you wont think it’s a problem, but it’s stressing me out so that makes it a problem. My stash, it’s still growing. I know I know, stash gives me street cred and what-not with other knitters, but for me personally I just see big piles of money sitting around. I need to stop buying yarn. I’m saying this because as I type this I KNOW I am going to buy yarn later today, my LYS is having a sale. I’ll be buying some Frog Tree. But here’s the deal. After that I need to stop. At least for 6 months. How do I do it? Has anyone else done this? I have some fabulous yarn in my stash that I would have completely forgotten about if it weren’t for my stash on Ravelry. It’s wrong and it’s stressing me out! I’ve got to do something. Some thing has got to be done.

Today’s Pr0n! Hempathy. Of course I have no idea what this will be, becuase I don’t need to have project in mind to buy yarn.

First off, wasn’t Lost freaking awesome last night! I can’t believe the season is almost over!

On the Italy Pr0n! I bought this in Lucca, I completely forgot to snap a picture of the shop, but we walked by it everyday. All the yarn was behind glass under the counter or in displays. I had to ask to see anything and since I only speak limited Italian and the gentleman helping me only spoke limited English it was a challenge. But what kind of knitter would I be if I let a little language barrier keep me from yarn! LOL This lace weight merino in a gorgeous ruby red color. I have two hanks about 1376 yards each. I think it will be the Cap Shawl or the Large rectangle in Spider Net or one of the other rectangle shawls from Victorian Lace Today

Cento Undici yarn

I finally started knitting again yesterday. I didn’t want to tell ya’ll this, but Italy stole my knitting mojo and I was starting to worry I’d never get it back! Seriously yesterday was the first time I even had the urge to knit.

Oh and I’ll be drawing a winner for the contest tomorrow !

Ok ya’ll I’m so far behind on my blog reading that it isn’t even funny. The next week isn’t looking any better either. Apologies all around for being that crazy-I’m-so-busy person. Here’s my question for you, I’m getting ready to leave for 3 weeks for a real vacation, no computer, no internet, so should I get a guest blogger? How do you feel about guest bloggers? Should I write up some posts in advance and just have them post while I’m gone? Or nothing for 3 weeks?

Lorna’s Lace’s Shepherd Worsted in Ice Storm. This yummy yarn was a gift from Emily after the massive damage to my trees in December’s Ice Storm. I wound it a up a while back thinking I’d knit a shrug with it, but I wasn’t happy with the results so you’ve never seen it. I feel like I have to find the perfect pattern for this! LOL
