Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

I've been really good about not buying yarn lately.
Or is that bad?
Good, it's good. Yes, good definitely good. Good for the stash that lives in my ceiling. My poor ceiling stash really wants to see light of day so it's good that I don't buy much new yarn.
This year I have bought 3 skeins of hot pink cotton ease. Yes, you've got that right. 3 skeins of yarn in the past 4 months. I even went to my LYS last week to deliver a piece of pottery. I did purchase a pice of cloth for a new shower curtain and I looked at the yarn.
I came close to buying some of the new soy blend sock yarn. I picked up the sample sock. I fondled it. I fondled the yarn. It really was lovely. The price was good. I picked up 2 skeins. Then I started to think about the poor sock yarn that is languishing in my closet. Enough for over 100 pairs (maybe over 200 at this point, hey I can admit it). I haven't had time to knit much since I'm working on designs and on finishing up UFO's.
I set the new sock yarn down. I left it in the basket. Poor little sock yarn will have to wait until someone else can take it home.
On my way home I stopped off at the post office and there was a package for me. A package for me? A REWARD!!! Somehow Amanda knew that I was going to pass up buying yarn and she sent me a reward!
Smart gal that Amanda. Oh, and you should visit her because she's going to give some gorgeous hand painted sock yarn away. Sock yarn. I'm weak in the knees. Thank you Amanda!
