A yen for yarn
Sock yarn is so tempting. Just two skeins is all you need! (And sometimes one, if it's big.) So it's easy to succumb, even if early on you vowed (OK, I vowed) not to buy yarn ahead of time. One project at a time, was my plan. Key word: was.
Someone with a large stash might laugh at this puny collection. But this is just the sock yarn. (Note how I couldn't resist starting on that bruise-y Koigu on the upper right.) I also have a bag full of 10 skeins of Rowan Cork (95 percent merino, 5 percent nylon; feels like cotton) in a sage-y green that was half-price. Such a deal! Such a steal! Who could say no? Plus a whoooole bunch of books and patterns.
And ... I have Aunt Susie's Stash of Novelty Yarns. More about this later.
