The yarn binge

Okay, time for me to fess up. I have bought yarn, and I don't mean a skein. I have purchased enough sock yarn to make SEVEN pairs of socks! I have no will power. I should be banned from eBay. How could I resist, seven pairs of hand knit socks, all for the bargain price of $45!

So, here is the tally of what I knit before I fell off the wagon.

1 sweater (it was for my niece, but it doesn't fit)
7 hats for Dulaan (Steph says charity knitting counts double, so I am claiming 14)
"I Skinned the Muppets" throw (I should post a picture, but it is so UGLY)
Finished sweater for Cindy
3 pairs of Wee Sockies
1 pair of Bell Lace Socks

Started but not finished:

Sly's Denim Style sweater
My Wool-ease sweater
Galway vest for me
2 pairs socks for me
Mr. Dangly (contest winner)
Fairy doll

Started and frogged to re-start soon:

We Call Them Pirates
Skulls of Fury

In addition, I have found a new knitter in need of a stash, so I gave Steph around 18 skeins of yarn to help her build a stash.

So, I guess I wasn't too bad. Just a little bad.

Sorry, no photos today. I spent all day knitting needle rolls and dpn/crochet hook rolls. I'll post pictures tomorrow. I am kinda beat now.

Well, if you gave away yarn, then buying new yarn doesn't count. It's like eating a grapefruit... after all is said and done, it's negative calories!

Hey, do you think you might be able to pencil in Beltane at the church? I'm leading, and we will have live music, plus a potluck after. And kid stuff before. It's on the 29th. It's going to be lots of fun, and all your friends are doing it... :-)
