I just spent $170 at the yarn store. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/neg.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="negative"> can't stop buying the Montage handpainted wool (got <a href="http://www.fiber2yarn.com/images/yarn/naturally/jjs_montage_8ply.jpg" target="_blank">this colorway</a> today...) even though I can't imagine what I'll do with it. I have 3 and none of them are the same! I bought what I pray is enough silky cotton something or other for a top for my mom and the rest of the bamboo I need for... a project I can't even recall now.<br><br>
Now I'm pregnant and need to start knitting for baby!!! AHHGHH!!!

I thought it said, "Oh Gosh, the Quilt!" I wanted to read about the quilt that provoked that outburst <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">.<br><br>
(Wow! And I felt guilty because I spent a dollar apiece on a few sweaters for frogging at Goodwill, instead of waiting till tomorrow when they went to 50 cents! Looking forward to handpainting some of that myself though <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">. Some nice cashmere, lambswool, linen.)<br><br>
That's a pretty colorway- you'd better get knitting!

Oh you better believe that if she'd had a swift and winder for sale they'd be MINE! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

The cashmere is this melon color; I think KoolAid in various reds & oranges & pinks will look very sherbet-y & fabulous.<br><br>
And the wool is ivory & cabled, it is going to be pounds & pounds & pounds to experiment with! (I'm glad all those Wilton food dyes I have will get some use <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">.)<br><br>
Maybe I'll make a quilt. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

I need to take a Monday off of work so I can hit the half price days at the local thrift stores. I seriously doubt I'll find anything as good as what TT is always posting that she's found.<br><br>
And - oh to spend some time/money at a LYS! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I was gonna go on Sunday, but there was too much snow on the car & I was too lazy to clear it off. Besides - I've got my HPY and IBK orders coming soon. I should be good.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

well, after winding several balls of yarn last night in less than an hour (you can see them all on my blog) I was oh so glad that i bought the swift and winder. i also have four more skeins of yarn coming my way, including 700 yards of a cotton/rayon blend. i'm gonna be really, really, really glad then. just thinking about handwinding all that yarn makes me tired.
