Alas! I have succumbed to the gargantuan, fantabulous sale at Black Sheet Knittery too many times. I must have made four trips back to this mecca in the past two months. I've heard that the 50% off sale will continue through the end of May! Don't worry, the store is NOT closing. The owner, Kristal just wants to clear out her warehouse space and keep all of the yarn at the shop. She must have a huge warehouse.
I was speaking to my friend, Ellene the other day about our out-of-control yarn purchases. She feels embarrased to discuss her purchases. I agree. What is it? Is it because there are children starving all over the world and I'm spending money on frivolous yarn? I know, I know. I shouldn't feel guilty about my purchases. I have a good job, I pay my bills, I donate to charity, I don't overspend in other areas of my life. There's just something inspiring about the possibilities that looking at, feeling and sniffing gorgeous yarn brings to me. Visions of beautiful knitted and crocheted garments float through my head. I dream of yarn and patterns.
Here are my recent purchases at the bag sale at BSK. The prices are, of course, incredible!
I have no idea what I'll create with this bounty. Maybe my dreams will tell me.
I ran over to the Michael's in Burbank on Saturday to pick up some cotton to create some washcloths for hostess gifts. I just couldn't pass up three skeins of this Caron "Simply Soft, Shadows" in the green colorway. I crocheted a cardigan using this yarn in burgundy a few months ago...I just love it. I'll probably just knit one of those Sally Melville triangle scarves.
Hello, my name is Ellen and I'm a yarn-a-holic.
