Well, those brief hours of believing that sock yarn is all I can buy in the colourways I covet are gone now, and I have to face some terrible facts:
I have joined a sock club for the sheer thrill of having surprise yarn show up in the mailbox once a month for three months and not because I am a confirmed sock-knitter. Not even remotely confirmed. Never knit a sock in my life in fact and am more inclined toward mittens.
I want to buy quite a few skeins of hand-dyed yarn for which I have no pattern or clear plan, though I am thinking Vest! or Cardi! or maybe this colour as well or instead... or this...
I already have quite a growing stash of yarns I love and am not sure what to do with yet, and I can't experiment with any of it because I'm tied up with other work, so how can I possibly make use of these other new yarns?
Welcome to the world of knitting is what it all boils down to, isn't it. That and I'd better be a lot more sensible than this when I go to the yarny festy thing I've got down on the calendar for next weekend.
