It was just an email from Little Knits that pushed me over the edge. I couldn't help myself and I bought a bag (yes, 10 skeins) of Blus Sapphire Heather Cascade 220.

I had to.

It was less than $5 a skein and I love Cascade 220.

Now what do I do with all that yarn?

I see many blue felted bags in my future and at least a sweater or maybe even 2.

I sure hope I like the color (I've only seen it on screen :shrug: )

:passedout:

Best,
Susan

FELTED CLOGS! A felted beret. Or you could just make a throw with all that wonderful yarn.

Don't worry about losing control we've all done that. You can never have too much yarn.

OMG, I am SO going to my LYS tomorrow!

I am almost out of stash. I haven't been knitting long enough to have a well-stocked stash yet. Not good! :pout: :-x :doh:

I'm actually not a very big yarn freak...I don't care too much for exotic textures/colors. I prefer using simple yarn to knit things with complicated stitchwork, which wouldn't show well on variegated/textured yarns.

Momma Jo, I hear ya, I enjoy the textures, but I also like the color shifts of Varrigated yarn
and the semiunpredictability (is that even a WORD?) of what comes out
I make my Goddesses like that

makes them look lovely

Hey, that's no reason to stop you from being a yarn freak. There are still *lots* of yarns out there that have good stitch definition.

Now, Susan, don't you worry. There are lots of sweater patterns that will easily use 6-8 skeins of that for the size small. Then you'll only have enough left over for one felted bag, and you can return to Little Knits and buy more.

Cursed Little Knits and Kohl's, trying to bankrupt me!

Well sit me on the crazy couch next to you then because I go to my LYS at least twice a week. And I just got last weeks order from Little Knits a few days ago. :teehee:


I'm working a Sophie bag right now in some of the same yarn. www.magknits.com is where I found the pattern. Have fun!
