Sucked Into The Yarn Vortex

The cousin (who also knits) made a quick visit this weekend. As always, it was too short a time and loads of fun. Among other activities, I took her to Knit & Knot for seduction...and it worked. (Of course!) And I admired her restraint and stayed on budget.

I, however, will probably be noshing on Ramen noodles for a week or two. These are worth it:

The WoolBuddy is "Quint," but I've named him Sharky (after the character in "Eek! The Cat").

I blame cabin fever for the next two purchases. This is such a beautiful winter white/natural color, and throw in silver sparkly. Mine.

And really, even cabin fever isn't enough for me to justify this purchase. Pink. I know! Who am I anymore?! I think the erratic hormones have wrecked havoc. It's so much lovelier in person, though...

I know, I know. They're laceweight. I don't knit lace. I thought about crocheting them. Or knitting a pair of hand warmers out of them. I'm not sure yet. However, I have them. I pet them, and admire their colors and sheen.
