What a weekend...

I haven't had email since early, early, early morning Saturday. Now I'm starting to feel disconnected from the world. Sigh!

I had a weekend full of yarny goodness. On Thursday (it's close enough to Friday, so it counts towards the weekend) I meet up with Amy to get The Socks. Amy also gave me the cutest mitten kit that she received from Moorehouse Merino. Love it! How did she know I needed mittens? (Other than she can't actually knit with wool and the ones I've been wearing are .99¢ special from Shoppers?) Thanks, Amy! You totally rock! So I started the socks on Friday night and then proceeded to riiiipppp them out. I found that I may be a good knitter but I am a lousy stitch counter. But I got back on that horse and casted on again Saturday morning.

Sunday, Sophie and I headed to a Secret Location where I was able to add to my growing collection of yarn 20 balls of Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed in "Night" (#409) to make Ubernatural and 5 skeins of Estelle's Wolly Bully in "Sunset" (#350) to make some sort of kooky top-down or bottom-up raglan sweater.

Ok, so now my stash basket runneth over. OMG! I mean, look at it. Loooook!

I know for some this would be just a mole hill not a mountain, a grain of sand on the beach, a drop of water in the ocean! But for me this is out of control. I'm not complaining, but this means no new yarn for me until I actually complete a project or two (or five). Which isn't the worst thing in the world because I have great projects in the queue.

More pictures to follow later when I have a bit more time and I can find the D70. (Blown out picture above brought to you by the tired, borken A60.)

Keep your fingers crossed that I can continue to count until I am finished with the first sock. Off to bed. Zzzzzzzz!

You're welcome! Lololololloloooo!

Borken is worse than broken. I don't even know *why* I continue to use it. I'm guessing glutten for punishment, but I could be wrong.
