Stash enhancement

Posted by Nanc

Was it sun sickness? Heat exhaustion? Solar flares? What caused me to go bonkers and buy more yarn? Heck, I even admitted to Bonez the other day that “Boy, I sure have a lot of yarn.”

Some of the thoughts that were going through my mind at the time: Do I have *enough*? Is there ever “enough?” How will I knit it all? Man, I’ve gotta get it all knit up! Especially if I wanna buy some of that SeaSilk. Of course, I was under a large pile of yarn trying to reorganize and pack up my stash so that it didn’t completely consume the house.

But no. What it all came down to was a forwarded e-mail notice from a fellow knitgrrl about a last minute, ‘Beat the Heat’ sale at the Woolie Ewe, one of our happy LYSs. *Everything 40% off!* I mean really, what else could I do?

Don’t answer that.

So I did what any sane knitter would do… show up first thing and buy, buy, buy. Any resistance and fortitude was melted away by the encouragement of my fellow knitters. (You know who YOU are!)

But all was well, as I got some really nice yarns at a really nice price. Some of this haul is purely for me, me, me [ahem... sock yarn], and some of it is for upcoming projects. And a bit of it was solely for the fact that it is great yarn that I’ve been meaning to get one day and the price this day was superb.

The Vanakins and Walter helped me with the foto shoot.

The new line up of yarns include the following:

And finally, a bonus picture of Walter for all his fans! Ya’ know… the little feller is coming up on his first birthday.

    40% off? You had no choice and showed remarkable constraint. Walter seems pleased.

    You always need more yarn. And some days you need more yarn than others! Congrats on the fine enhancement to the stash.
