Sit down. You’re going to laugh. I’m probably admitting how very shallow I am but right now, I’m as frustrated as I’ve been about this move and as soon as I finish writing this post, I’m going to say “Did I really just say that?”
Maybe I’m frustrated, tired, still don’t feel good because of those two shots Monday . . maybe I am a shallow person.
There’s a knit along that starts tomorrow that I REALLY wanted to do. I didn’t know about it, or maybe I did and wasn’t thinking about it, before we let Texas so all the yarn options I have are the skeins that are here with me in MO . . and that’s not much!
I need about 650 yards of fingering weight yarn. That would be two skeins of most fingering weight yarns. What I really want is a gradient. I have plenty in Texas . . packed! I’d never find them and if I started ripping into boxes, Vince would not be happy.
I dug through the one tote of yarn I have here, along with the one trash bag of yarn and this is what I found. All of my beads are here, which makes it even harder because how would I know which beads to take home IF I were to find yarn there?
The two yarns on the left are Madelinetosh Twist Light, which is 25% nylon, which isn’t the best candidate for a lacy shawl. The one on the right is Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light, which is a good candidate but I’ve made three dark green shawls (or started them) recently.
I have been wanting to make a black shawl so I said . . I’m just going to do it but now I’m not sure. It isn’t the best choice and I think I’d be sorry. It isn’t like I don’t have a bunch of projects started that I need to finish . . I think I’m going to have to sit this one out.
