Look what followed me home...

Sometimes you have to ignore yarn diets. And budgets.

Sometimes you see a colour, the most awesomest colour ever dyed and it has to come home and live at your house. In your stash drawer, or maybe in a vase as a centrepiece.


And if the awesomest colour ever dyed happens to be painted on Koigu, and it happens to be the last two skeins on the shelf, then it would be criminal not to give it a good home. Right?

Two lonely skeins of yarn, left on a shelf? Who knows what mischief they might have got up to!

I am worried that this Koigu is addicitve, though. I don't want to innocently buy some and then end up on a slippery slope where I got out on the street, offering to knit socks for strangers to feed my habit...

It's definitely a slippery slope. I have bought 8 skeins so far this year *blushes*

I will send you a list of what I had to adopt when I visited the Handweavers and Spinners Guild craft supply yesterday. Prepare to be shocked.
But it's nice to know you understand my addictions.

Completely criminal. You clearly had no options.

As for the Who Am I conundrum? You are whatever you label yourself and so much more.

However the "current animosity towards anything under 4 1/2 feet tall" cracked me up.

You clearly had to rescue those poor little skeins. You've done a great service to the world of yarn by giving them a good home!

I have yet to experience the joy that must be Koigu, and am thinking that's probably good for my wallet.....

lovely color, I can see why you had to bring it home!
How else do you think my stash got so big? ; )

I have a shed full of old and new tools and tins of nuts, bolts, clips, pins, nails and the list goes on and on and on and on. I have little idea where they all came from or what I am saving them for, BUT they really look good on my dusty shelves. I am impressed with you. I think I have passed something on Diane,
love DaD.
