  • Stash-a-longing

    Feeling and longing are the motive forces behind
    all human endeavor and human creations.
    -Albert Einstein

    I'm so jealous.Here's my Olympic teammate Katja and a small fraction of her new yarn. This is, I believe, Jameson's Shetland with an idea to make some fair isle - a hat and mittens, perhaps. Really, it is Stash. Yarn bought because it's good yarn and it's on sale and someday, somewhere, somehow you might get around to making something from it.

    I haven't bought yarn (except 2 skeins of sock yarn on the free day) in something like 10 weeks, which I'm fairly certain is a record. I even missed a 40% going out of business sale. This is getting desperate. (The fact that I seem to have just as much yarn as ever is entirely not the point. Clearly, it's reproducing on it's own.)

    How much longer is this Stashalong?

    Only 3 weeks to go. I feel like that stunt guy in the beer commercial. You know, the one who stays 2 minutes past 5 on a Friday?

    Oh... PLEASE teach my yarn to reproduce itself!!! Maybe if I play some soft music.... lay it out next the the fireplace?

    You two are so funny! I LOVE that commercial. It's so real.

    The other day I posted that I was plotting a Stashalong defection. Now today I'm wavering and thinking - MAYBE I could make it to the end without cracking. I don't have any sales tempting me though - I'm staying well away from the LYS.

    Hee hee, don't mind me. Probably shouldn't stop by my blog and look at the picture from yesterday, either. La la la la!

    Ouch, a 40 percent off going-out-of-business sale? That hurts.

    Stay strong, and just think how must more you'll appreciate being able to buy some special but as-yet-purposeless skein once it's all over.

    The rules don't say that you can't steal or borrow yarn, does it?

    I'm feeling your pain too---I really, really, really want some sock yarn! Three weeks, I can make it three weeks(that's what I keep telling myself). Hang in there;)

    Oh my word! If you'd like give me the secret signal and I'll come kidnap you from the cult of no yarn buying and deprogram you. Can't stand to see a knitter suffering!

    I was so surprised she resisted the sale! I didn't and ended up with yarn for 4 new projects. That the stashing continue! Yippee!
