I think it’s the stash of beautiful yarn wanting to be made into sweaters that is calling me back to knitting. Yesterday when Vince and I were talking about whether I would continue knitting, I said “At least I should have the yarn I need for the rest of my days.” He said “Does that mean I won’t see any yarn arriving here?” I told him . . not necessarily because there could be a time when I would need yarn. Say there’s something I want to knit and I have enough to make a sweater but there’s some . . I can’t even remember what you call it . . where there’s a design you put it in adding one or more colors. If I have . . say Madelinetosh DK in black and I need two skeins of white for adding a design . . yes, I could use yellow or pink or something else but if I have my heart set on adding two skeins of white, I’ll order two skeins of white. So, I’m not willing to say I’ll never order another skein of yarn but I’m pretty committed to saying I won’t be ordering boxes and boxes of yarn just to add to the stash.
My spreadsheet from 2019 has over 900 entries of yarn.
The left column is the number of skeins and the right column is total yardage for that particular set of skeins.
OK . . I won’t even order two skeins of white yarn. I’ll find something in the stash to use! 🙂
