I need an owl


Imagine, just imagine, what I found yesterday right after I posted to you?

Yarn! Lots of yarn! It's my yarn that I picked out for Christmas from my mother. She's so wonderful. I got it out and I played with it, and did a happy dance, and took pictures!

Hi. My name is Amy. I am a yarnaholic.

But, let me just say, thanks, Webs. I'm glad to see that you aren't using your profits for boxes. I hope your car is running well now with it's new transmission parts. (This is not sarcasm. I'm glad that Webs isn't adding to the pollution and overproduction of boxes [and everything else] on this planet.)

1.3 kg= 2.8 lb=lot of yarn.

Twelve skeins of Berocco Ultra Alpaca Light, a delectable combination of wool and alpaca in the flavour "Ocean Mix." Personally, when I think of ocean mix I think of seafood, but that's just me. Think Salina, from Vintage Knits by Rowan.

Seven Skein of Cascade 220 in "Heather." I hope to make Forecast, with some of the modifications described in Ravelry.

Today, I realized, while surfing the Craft Magazine blog, that I don't have a yarn container in the shape of an owl or a bird. I fully intend to rectify this situation. However, the one thing I don't like about these is that, once the yarn goes through there, you can't take it out until you're done knitting. Snaps? I'm thinking snaps. Then you can snap that yarn in and out, and it would still hold it tightly inside safe.

I don't think I have snaps.

I think I'm going to have to go searching under my bed, and perhaps shopping.

I like yarn that has good sheen. Do you know what's tragic? I have a suspicion that I threw my new fingerless mitts away on accident.

No! False alarm! I still have them.
