Oh, I’ve seen the error of my ways.
Awhile back (in 2008!), I presented the argument against accumulating a large stash, but I had not accepted it. I have now.
I took a break from knitting starting early last summer up to just a couple of weeks ago. During that time, we did some reorganizing at home and I was confronted by the shocking enormity of my yarn wealth. One thing I realized is that I can’t afford to stop knitting! Ever.
So, from now on (and, believe me, given my multiple bins, it could be for the rest of my life), I will only knit with the yarn I already own and I will knit with that yarn whether I’m “feeling it” or not! I have to get out from under this…it’s suffocating me…ack...arghhhh….
I found a few skeins of Tosh Merino (in “Fig”) in a box under my desk at work (hear that soft tapping?--that's my head against my desk). This lovely yarn is on it’s way to becoming “Idlewood”. This pattern has been in my queue forever (I really love Cecily Glowik MacDonald's designs). It’s a shame I didn’t start it a few months ago, since I likely will not finish it in the proper season (stupid Groundhog—you could’ve seen your shadow if you tried harder!).
Anyway, the journey of a million projects begins with one stitch.
