YarN PorN!

Picture 229



Today, Midnight Purls and I went on a lil' journey to the LYS. I went in with no list and no planned out projects! I kept my cool though and only bought a little bit. I picked up this Rio De Plata for a sweet earflap hat or mittens, I haven't really decided yet. The colorway was way to amazing to just leave it sitting there. While we were there, I also picked up some Lamb's Pride Worsted and a pattern for felted sunflowers that I wanted months ago, but it was on sale today.

I was going to watch the Knitty Gritty Knit In tonight instead of the SuperBowl, but after 3 episodes I couldn't deal with seeing any more fun fur, no matter how cute Vicki is! So, I knitted the Felted Military Belt from Michael's book. It knitted up so quickly!!!! I felted it in a bowl of hot water because I was afraid of it shrinking too much. I promise there will be pictures as soon as I get to JoAnn's to pick up some D-rings to finish it off. I was still sitting around with nothing to do, so I popped out another hedgehog using the brown Lamb's Pride. He doesn't have a face yet, but I'll get around to it.

I finally got a ball winder BTW!!! I've been agressively balling up my stash for days. I'm so excited to see everything organized in neat little cakes in my craft room. I still have a few more organizational things and a desk to pick up and then, MAYBE, I will let you all see my creative space.

I'm going to have some tea and go to bed <3>

Love the yarn porn! I've been meaning to get a ball winder too because I'm tired of winding my yarn by hand.

I love that Rio De La Plata!!! I'm currently pouching money for yarn stores in Seattle, so I have to tell myself no, no, no--do not order it online. You're going to love having a ball winder! I bought mine about a year ago and I use it a lot. It's a good investment.

What is a "baseball winder" is it different than a regular pull skein winder. I prefer balls personally.

Brooklynne Michelle said...

Okay you have a mission of epic proportions!!!!! You must email me your earflap hat pattern!!!!! The entire Mosh Knit Empire depends on it!!!!!!
