Whole Lotta Yarn!

Call me nuts, but there was a HUGE honkin’ box from Knit Picks on my porch today, and THIS is what was inside:

Big pile o' yarn
Big pile o’ yarn

That’s what 72 balls of yarn looks like, people. SEVENTY-TWO. Am I crazy? Waaaaaait. Don’t answer that.

Knit Picks introduced a bunch of new colors in their Palette line, and what can I say? I’m a sucker for having lots of yarn in many colors. The thing is, when I nonchalantly clicked to order two balls of nearly every new color, I had NO IDEA, and I really mean that, NO IDEA how much yarn I was actually buying.

My name is Trish D. and I am a yarnaholic.

Except I don’t want to be cured.

Squee! This winter I AM going to learn how to do colorwork. I want to make tams. And selbuvotter mittens. And lots of other colorful things. Now I have a whole crayon box full of colors to play with.

Did I NEED more yarn?

Define need.

I’m gonna go roll in it a while before I go to sleep.

    Oh, but it’s useless to resist when KP comes out with just about anything that’s new! Their book sales get me every time, and anything sock-related of course. The new Zephyrs, I could go on and on, but I think you’re buried in delicious yarn now!

    Note to self: having just purchased significant amounts of yarn at 4 different LYSs, avoid the KP website. And Trish’s blog, lest the overwhelming jealousy get to you. 🙂

    Phew! I thought I was crazy too for ordering 44 skeins of brown bouclé from WEBS to knit a, shall we say, very large bedspread! Plus a really nice bamboo circular needle. What can I say, it was on sale…
