So, where’s my stash?

September 22, 2007

To date, I have cataloged my needles and yarn. But I realize, my yarn is quickly deminishing as I have joined several YarnSwaps, 1 KAL and 1 KAG ~gasp! I feel the need to SHOP! So shop I did. I hit my favorite online shop and ordered a set of 16″ bamboo circulars and 24 skiens of some chunky, wintery type yarn for gifting.

From there I agonized over the purchase of a blocking board.

Hi! Hello? Anyone? Howz about a YarnSwap?

So, maybe I should retract my first entry because I have been waiting to get into Ravelry for awhile now.

Not because it is the cool knitter thing to do but simply for the following reason: I would love to be a dummy and use their site to organize my passion. Yes fellow knitters, I am a lazy bean – but selectively so. Alas, waiting has proven to be too much for me and so, I must take the sheep by the horns and organize here at WordPress. (Thank you WordPress)
