Ene, meenie, miney, mo!
Thanks to everyone who voted... but why use stash yarn when you can buy new, exciting, I've never used this type of yarn yarn? Yes, I was bit by the siren call of the new luxurious yarn.
So... how do you pronounce this scarf's name anyhow? Which scarf?
I've been obsessively, and exclusively, working on this project for the last week or so. Here's my progress pic of Ene's scarf. I'm at the beginning of chart 3, (there are 4 charts total), which has been the most difficult so far. That would be the black purl colorway, of Lorna's Laces Helen's lace. And yes, it's new. From String.
As I admitted on Michelle's blog comments, I've been having LOTS of SEX. I think I'm addicted.
here are some of my past indiscretions, of which i've been too shame filled to blog about. i've been a bad, bad girl.
This lovely skein of yarn, called Swan- from Wool in the Woods, is for Joanne's friendship afghan, a rambling rows mitered square one... I bought this skein yesterday afternoon, at a new yarn store in SE Aurora (Moon Fiber Arts), with Michelle as a witness.
for one of the projects I discussed in last week's post...
aren't the colors pretty? I need to finish either spork or my so called scarf so I can cast on for this one! The lighter purple will be the cabled area. I have a few skeins of the light purple in my stash, and the rest of the colors, I bought one skein each at Colorful Yarns.
This past Tuesday, Stacey and I went to the 3-2-1 sale at A Knitted Peace.
That would be my haul. 8 skeins of Rowan Felted Tweed (4 in a teal, 4 in a deep purple), 2 balls of Jaggerspun zephyr lace weight yarn, 2 skeins of Lamb's pride in navy. 3 books... one on aran patterns, one in lace, and Ann Budd's Sweater book.
At this point, I'm wondering what I'm leaving out. Because it seems what I've documented is already enough SEX to qualify me as an addict in need of help. What I've left out is the stuff I've left in the car. Some feltable wool (Icelandic wool and lamb's pride) for felted clogs for myself, and a few balls of paintbox.
Last... a progress pic of my-so-called-scarf.
I'll be joining Kim's stashalong, which means I can't have any SEX for three months, beginning Jan 1, 2006. My only exception would be purchases for birthdays and SP7.
