The call of the yarn

These past four days have been all about yarn. I’ve worked with yarn during three out of the four days and I’ve visited three yarn stores. I’ve had big yarn accidents and gotten multiple ideas for new projects. It’s really time for a new cardigan for example. I’m thinking green. And someone hinted that the socks received two years ago had done their job by now. There seems to be a baby boom next year and I know of at least five babies arriving before Midsummer. Obviously this means that it’s time to knit baby clothes. Also, there was a lot of yarn that needed me to take care of it.

Being around yarn is very nice, I just need to touch it. You pass a beautiful skein on your way to something else and you just stretch out your hand and give it a little squeeze in passing. It’s very satisfying. And the project ideas, obviously, so many of them. They just keep poping up which is very nice. Today an idea for a baby sweater just forced itself into my head and I can’t get it out. There is something about the days between Christmas and New Year’s that just makes me want to start eleven projects at the same time. I haven’t so far but they yarn is calling me and I know it’s only a question of time before I do something about it. We’ll see how long I can resist.
