Today was a fabulous day as far as Sally's knitting life is concerned. I went to the end of the year sale at Spinning Yarns in Dover. Margot had a swift with a damaged box, no damage to the swift, and she gave me a great deal on it. I couldn't be happier. No more cursing as I try to wind yarn that won't fit on Mom's old swift. Henry thought it was something to attack. I had to pick up a couple of skeins because of the sale, but I held myself back from going over the edge. I just bought two more bins to hold my stash and UFOs.
DyakCraft I got a set of dpn's in different woods and I love them. They came in about a week. The company has obviously become quite a sensation. The needles are in a lovely case, I thought I had changed my order to lace tips, but I guess that message didn't get through to the shop floor. Not a problem. The needles are plenty sharp enough and I have the KnitPicks set for when I need them. Now I have to decide what to cast on.
Knitspot Fall in Full Color club was a mistake. The yarns are lovely, but I only have knit one of the skeins/projects so far. I don't think clubs are a good move for me.
So, the 2012 resolution is:
Knit From the Stash
A quick check on my Ravelry stash, which I do keep up to date, comes in at a whopping 77,353 yards. Obviously there must be some mistake.
This was fun! 2012: Blog and Knit (from the stash...)
