Is there something that you buy simply because its *beautiful* - and then can't bring yourself to make a project with it?
For me that "something" is yarn. "Hello, my name is Rebecca and I'm a yarn addict". I was doing better, but I fell off the wagon today. I bought some yarn - volumptous, scrumptous, bodacious yarn (from Italy) in this soft fall color palette. Can you blame me? I just couldn't pass it up although they only had two skeins.
My yarn addiction goes pretty far back .... I crochet and I'm pretty hooked on "loom" knitting. Have you tried it? I scored a set of round looms last year and its so easy. I took a knitting class and still *think* I want to knit using needles - but the whole casting on thing just scares me. What I really like about loom knitting? Quick gratification - its not instant but it doesn't take long at all to finish a project.
Just to hold myself accountable - I plan on actually starting a project TODAY with this yarn.
Here's some other gems (yarns) I've been hoarding.
Super chunky in a fuschia/purple color - for a really BODACIOUS project
