This is a conversation I had with Mattie a few days ago:
Me: You know I have the whole rainbow in Red Heart cheapie yarns including black and grey except white and brown.
Mattie: You should go buy more yarn.
Me: I need to use up some yarn first.
Mattie: You should go buy it now so you have it when you need it already.
Me: Stop encouraging me!
Mattie: I’m being supportive.
Me: I keep saying no more yarn until I use some. Them I buy a bunch more.
Mattie: But you have room for more yarn!
I’m pretty sure I have a yarn problem and Mattie is totally enabling me. I don’t think I really mind though and I like I needed to buy some yarn after we had the conversation. That led me to eBay (just to look of course!) and had me searching for lots of yarn. Maybe someone wanted to clean out their stash and had a mess of yarn with a cheap bid. It doesn’t hurt to look, right?
These are the six hanks of recycled silk sari yarn I ended up buying Monday night, which was shipped out Tuesday, and arrived on Wednesday afternoon. Because I still don’t have a yarn swift, it was an exercise in tangles, but I finally got all six hanks neatly wound up into cakes. And as you can see, each cake is a different set of colors, though reds and oranges really dominate most of them. All the colors are lovely, and even the one cake that is more muted tones is so pretty! They are so gorgeous and I can’t want to find the right project to use them. So lovely!
