So I found this pattern for Tardis socks a while ago. I wanted to make them. The yarn in an acceptable color (meaning, not the exact color I want, but close enough to work) arrived from my order and I was rearing to cast on. Oh, what's that ... you don't have size 1 needles free?!?! Well how many do you have? 3 sets?? And none are free?!?!
I have 3 sets of circulars, because I prefer magic loop for socks. That's not to say that I don't have a few sets of DPNs kicking around. I do. But my 3 sets of circs are on projects at the moment. Oh this is why I keep leaning towards a life of monogamy and stop being the loose, sleazy, yarn w&^%$ that I am.
I don't even have needles to cast on this project and its not like I only own 1 set, I have three and still don't have any free to start this project!
What does this say about my knitting morality?!?!
Let's see how much of a s&^% I really am ....
What's on the needles right now?!?
2 pairs of socks
4 shawls (yes four)
10 ... I have 10 unfinished projects right now and I'm thinking of casting on another?
Are you a monogamous knitter or a polygamist knitter?
And what about yarn hoarding? I have enough yarn for 11 lace weight shawls ... yeah this one goes to eleven.
How about sweaters ... 9 ... nine sweaters.
Socks ... oh we don't go there. We stopped counting when we got over 100.
I have 9 skeins of sock yarn that I dyed that I haven't knit anything out of ... yeah 9.
I'm cut off. There's been an intervention. There will be no more yarn buying until October. I am putting it out there so that its in writing and there are witnesses!!
How's your stash?
