Yarn, yarn, everywhere I look

It's a good thing I live alone, there's yarn all over the place here. It's out of control at the moment. I just can't stop buying it. I ordered some more today on line. I was not going to buy any yarn during Lent, that didn't last long. I bought this sock yarn the other day when I went knitting with friends.




Isn't it pretty! I love the colors. I can't wait until the weather gets nice again and I can take pictures outside.

I started another hat in a Ravelry Knit-Along. This one is the Dean Street Hat, made with Malabrigo. My first time using Malabrigo. Ohhhhhhhhh, this stuff is nice! The first hat I started got frogged, story of my life lately, it was just going to be too big. Started the smaller size last night and now I'm moving right along.



I also need to start on a dishcloth for an exchange. I ripped out the socks from the last post and started a new pair. I could not get a good picture of them so that will have to wait until another time.

Do you ever go to estate sales? They are lots of fun, you never know what you will find. Sometimes they are good, sometimes they are crappy. I went to one with my sister on Saturday and bought these items.



Like I need more stuff. But this stuff was calling my name so I bought it. I also got a nice big tote bag with a zipper. I'll keep a big knitting project in that thing. I did my part to keep the economy going.

that bird is really nice.

Yarn everywhere-you mean you aren't supposed to decorate with yarn. Darn, I need to rethink that one.
