Last night I had a lovely reminder from Churchmouse Yarns and Teas that as of now it's okay to wrap what you're knitting, needles and all, and enjoy the peace of the season. If I had been frantically knitting when the note arrived I would so have taken that advice, as I hope you will too should you still be knitting.
Not an issue for me this year though! This year, not only am I too sick to knit (my fingers work now, but my nose has been replaced by a not at all yarn-friendly tap) I have been able to put the whole yarn/knits thing into perspective and just give up early.
Which makes this particular delivery so amusing to me:
It's the latest installment from the Indigo Dragonfly yarn club, With Gift - the gift being a rather fetching drawstring project bag with an image of a superhero capable of resolving any yarn shortages in a single flying leap.
I have to repeat those key words:
Having very recently spent many hours tidying up my yarn supply and sorting out what project to start next, I can't honestly say I know what 'yarn shortage' means. Coming from a place of overmuchness, it sounds like some sort of fantasy zenlike paradise in which one has only what one needs.
Obviously this is a level of balance that would produce night terrors for many.
Maybe even me.
Still... the dream of walking through a room without stumbling over baskets of yarn! The luxury of guilt free knitting, because there is no yarn you're ignoring! The freedom of a clear horizon as you work!
Okay, this is probably crazy talk.
In other news: denim blue merino/cashmere/nylon sock weight.
I think I'd really, really love a pair of loose textured sleep socks out of this stuff. What would you make with it?
(hope your Christmas Eve is going great!)
