Saving For Retirement
A few weeks ago, while sitting backstage with the Yarn Harlot at the LA Central Library before her presentation, Audrey and I were chatting with Stephanie about our vast yarn stashes and how we feel guilty owning so much yarn. The lovely YH gave us the perfect rationalization for gathering and storing yarn. Here's what she said, "Are you going to retire someday? Will you be knitting and crocheting more once you retire? Will your income be limited when you retire?" Audrey and I replied "yes" to all of those questions. "Well, then," Stephanie replied, "you are merely stockpiling yarn for those lean years of retirement!" I do love the Yarn Harlot.
I've been photographing my stash for Ravelry. Since I have Larry's photo studio, lights, seamless background, his expertise, etc. at my disposal, I thought I'd do the job the right way. After Larry helped me set up the lights, I snapped tons of shots of yarny goodness. I think this makes an orgasmic slideshow. The possibilities are endless.
I will be at Marie's house on Saturday morning for the yarn and craft sale. I need to add to that stockpile. Hope to see you there. Can't wait to add that hot pink Sayelle she promised me to my stash photos!
On Sunday, Rhoda and I will be attending the L.A. Conservancy's "Cultivating L.A.: 100 Years of Japanese-Style Garden Making in Southern California, A Self-Driving Tour." Have a marvelous weekend!
