I'm a failure ...

Yes, that's right. A yarn-diet drop-out. I decided to put myself on a yarn diet. Now, some of you are thinking "That was your first mistake." And yes, maybe I did set myself up for failure.

How did this happen, you might ask. I went to my LYS a few weeks ago in search of the last gift to send to my SP8 .... and I found this ... NEW sock yarn. Hand-dyed by a local. I WAS WEAK. And the LYS lady was no help in my weakness, depending on how you look at it.

I love the colors. It's making me want to put a hold on the current sock project to use it, even though I have NEVER completed a whole sock ... nope not even one. I admit ... I have issues and I need a support group ;)

In other news ... I received this surprise in the mail a few weeks ago from my SP! Isn't it great? Perfect for my new sock yarn. Thanks SP! You're so sweet.

The summer of cotton

It's SO hot. Too hot to touch wool. So, here I am with more Warshrags on the needles. This set is going to my grandmother as part of her birthday gift. She will be 80 this Saturday. She gets so excited at the thought of her granddaughter knitting, so I thought I'd share some of it with her. Plus her eyes aren't as good as they once were and she's given up all knitting and crochet. ;(

This weekend, I went a little nuts in the Suagr N' Cream isle at A.C. Moore. Looks like a lot of people will be receiving warshrags as gifts!

Oh, and THANKS to everyone who commented on my post last week! PEOPLE DO READ MY BLOG!

And now a word from the resident blogging helper ... who says "Yarn is good for chasing, chewing and barking at." Isn't he the cutest dog? I adore him (in case you hadn't noticed)We were on our way to the dog park this evening when it began raining, so here he is, keeping watch on the blogging.

Hi SP8! Hope you are doing well.
