Firstly, is it possible to have too much yarn? Surely not. Only a man could think you could have too much yarn. Well has it happens, I really don't have much excess yarn. Most of it is assigned to projects. The problem is, I have too many yarn projects on the go :-) Shall we take a look at this madness?
1. The birthday blanket - sorely neglected these days, but upon viewing this photo I really do L O V E it.
2. The Mr. VW Ripple - I find it very satisfying how quickly I can complete a row on this beauty.
3. Surprise!!! Yep still got my toes in the knitting pool - just knitting up some scraps for a stripey scarf for Little J.
So three's not so bad is it? Hold on though, had to make quick stop at the shops on the way home tonight - you know, one of those run in run out as fast as you can stops? Get just what you need stops? Yeah right. Of course when referring to the shops in this town you mean Wally World, well because that's about all we have.
So our highly irritating over sized warehouse is in the process of 'remodelling' which has resulted in the removal of their fabric dept :-( Now I know they never sold high quality fabrics, but I did occasionally pick up a pretty piece here and there. Now they is appears they are eliminating their yarn department! They actually had a very good selection of yarns and very low prices and are basically the only place in the area that stocks yarn.
Anyway, to cut a long story short while zipping by the yarn section this evening I just had to rescue some of the last lonely balls of yarn. They're not fancy balls, just cheapo stuff, that once washed in some fabric softener will be super lovely and soft and I think will make a sweet picnic blanket :-)
So we'll call them yarn project #4. Now, I just have to keep them out of sight so I am not tempted to actually start the project before I finish at least one of the others. What do you think the chances of that happening are? Slim or None? Yep, that's what I thought.
