This Is a Yarn Binge


Yes….I’ve fallen off the wagon. Most of you know that I have been on a serious yarn diet since last year’s Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. The plan was to make tons of projects using all of the yummy yarn goodness that I already have in my stash until Maryland Sheep and Wool 2013. Well, I didn’t quite make it. Yes, I have been busy playing with yarn from my stash. In fact, I found a lovely skein of Louet Gems in my stash and quickly fell in love while knitting a sample stockinette stitch scarf for my knitting class. A few rows in, I decided to buy some more (just in case, right?)….then, after a few moments searching the internet, I found a lot (or two!) of mill ends of Louet Gems in varying weights. I couldn’t resist. I had never bought mill ends before and it seemed like a great deal at %50 off the retail price. So, now the fun begins. My plan is to use these to make sample swatches and small projects.

Happy Stitching!
