Just look at what I've bought in just only the past two weeks.
Somebody has GOT to get me under control!
First it was some sock yarn ... I was looking for solid colors and found it at Fun Knits store.
Opal sock yarn ... and I've got plans for it.
Then I got some more books. Well what else is new? I love books!
And I saw the opportunity to buy a few Elizabeth Zimmerman's books ... which is well worth collecting and I've been wanting to collect more than the first 2 I had anyway. And Hit By A Farm is on my reading list, after I finish Needled to Death by Maggie Shefton ... which I'm half done with already and even ordered her next book, A Deadly Yarn. Yegads, I must be going nuts! Stop me before I spend it all! The kids are going to inherit yarn, books, knitting needles and misc. STUFF ... and at this rate there might be a Spinning Wheel thrown in too boot. But NO money!! Mooola will be all spent at this rate kids.
Then ... Sock blockers from Knitted Interrupted - Leggy Creations. To hang in my laundry room as pieces of Art rather than to actually block socks. IF, I block socks I usually use the coat hanger method. You can hang them up and the hangers were only $1.98 a dozen from Walmart. Plastic coated ... so you can hang wet items to dry.
It doesn't stop here ... August 16 a new yarn shop in Salem will open called Seed Stitch Fine Yarn on 10 Front Street. See the knitted bathing suit in the window. Ugh, who would ever wear a knitted bathing suit? But the shop looks really interesting. It has a long table down the middle with chairs or either side also ... classes maybe? Or a spot to sit & sample some yarns? Or a place for knitters to get together with their new yarn & needles purchases and chat? Well, I aim to find out!
If only I could go in, look around, and NOT buy more yummy yarn and what-nots ... aaahh, Who am I kidding??
