But the SIn I speak of is Stash Increases.
I have been working to avoid occasions of SIn.
First and foremost—I’ve just made it a habit not to go into yarn stores—and if in a Michael’s or ACMoore, not to walk over to the Yarn corner of the store.
Chia keeps me (and others)in the know with info about contests and give always on her blog—(but I don’t participate)
Friends like Carolyn have had sales to get rid of stash—and I passed—(I knew she had some beautiful yarns for sale)
First, Robyn shared some of her Lion Brand yarn with me.
Look at this lovely sports weight, Machine washable merino.
--Can you see mittens and a matching hat?
I can—I keep looking at Nanette’s mittens and hats-on her blog--and thinking—I could do that.
I should do that!
Now maybe I will do that!
Three of the skeins are from Robyn stash—the 4th(the black) forced its way into my life when I went to see the Lion Brand Studio Window display on Monday.
The Sock yarn, too is from her—the 3 skeins are all partially (but insignificantly) used.
The Lemon Drop yellow is going to Tea Bird—(she has little feet!) but I find I always have left over from most sock yarns.. (and I have HUGE feet) so I am not worried about slightly incomplete skeins. (and besides sock yarn doesn’t count as stash, does it? (not even when it’s a suitcase full?))
Not photographed is the cone (200+ yards) of the Wool and Steel yarn—(I think that is going to turn into a Retro (1950’s) style hat with a veil..) and the 2 skeins of Sasha that also forced their way into my stash on Monday!
