Have the Blog-uggs, absolutely no desire right now to blog, but I will try anyway. I've been a busy little bee and have put up four of what I hope will be many more lots of yarn on ebay, buyers remose has come at last. I'm amidst a knitters personally evolution, where basically you realize you know longer desire to have one ball of this or that, just because it was on sale, especially the crap. So on ebay went some STR (not crap, good yarn) the minute I bought it at Stitches I knew it was a mistake, it was too bright and cheerful for me. Also went a skein of Lorna's laces Shepherd Bulky and Worsted, plus a couple of weeks ago I was really stupid and bought 16 balls of some sparkly Trendsetter yarn that was on supersale and it is so not me, no matter how much I try. Except for sock yarn I have too many one-ball wonders and I never use it. I would rather sell alot of this excess and then put some good money down on quality quantity, that's my new motto, "Quality-Quantity". I've always wanted to do a cotton sweater out of that organic natural colored stuff but never wanted to spend the money, no more! On the actual knit side of life, I'm not going anywhere fast. The shawl was completed last week, my at work project is almost done, I have this super soft atrocious green sock yarn that I won at the Dulaan Knit-in that I can't seem to come up with a good pattern for, I'm over thinking it. It would be really nice to make so St Patty's socks, but I think a nice organic pattern will look better, maybe Cookie's Monkey. I'm almost ready to order the Fair Isle Cardigan pallete pattern from Knitpicks, some very late x-mas money made it into my pocket today, but I think it wise to practice a bit first before going full throttle Fair Isle style. I'm sure I can come up with an odd ball or two in my stash to mess around with.
