Don’t pay any attention to that dandelion over in the corner… she wants my Karabella Aurora 8!
Bip, you have a sister? You should talk to PinkD about getting your mom rehooked on knitting… she’s the one who got me going again after several years off! I think she had alterior motives :doh:
Seems we all agree there should be some way to deduct yarn from taxes…
aineepooh, actually… I have a deal with my husband. I am supposed to be able to buy enough yarn to fill the snowcat my husband bought. Well… I was supposed to get to do that BEFORE he could buy another snowcat, but he ended up with a super deal on a snowcat and a covered trailer that we couldn’t pass up, so now I am supposed to get to fill all three :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard:
As if I would do that… The only reason he agreed to that deal is because he knows that I generally don’t like to spend money if I don’t have to. I’m the cheap one in the family. He would just spoil me and let me buy what I want, but that goes against my Scotish heritage. Maybe that’s why this is such a shock to my system. :passedout:
I do use a lot of yarn from recycled sweaters. It’s a great way for me to keep plenty of yarn on hand without mortgaging the house! The nearest LYS is hours away so basically what I have on hand is what my daughter’s and I and sometimes our friends, have to work with.
I love to play with colors and look at my yarns like a paintbox! Even with so much yarn, there are many times I’m ready to color and missing one of the yarn crayons I want.
I totally agree that keeping yarn out, in view, and available helps greatly. It’s why I have my yarn cellar.
But how is a girl to pass up superwash merinos, silks, and Karabella Aurora 8 when it’s 30 - 70% off??? :teehee:
Now I just have to figure out where to fit the new yarn in :??
