Here is an example of why I should NOT be on any of the knitting social media sites! There are too many patterns; too many yarn pictures . . and obviously, I have no self control.
I happened on a website this morning, through a Facebook link, and saw that I already had an account so I clicked to see what I had ordered:
25 skeins of yarn. Why did I order 25 skeins of this yarn and where might it be hiding in my stash? So much for my idea that the cost of all yarn goes up and my stash is like money in the bank. My stash is more like money in the stock market. This yarn was $13.50 when I ordered it and now it’s $12.95.
My first attempt at sleuthing was to search the blog. Surely if I had ordered 25 skeins of a yarn I’ve never used, I would have written about it, right? Nope. I did not. I did find a post where I had mentioned a sweater I wanted to make and the pattern suggested Rowan Felted Tweed but I ordered Cascade Sport to use since none of the yarn shops where I usually make my purchases carried Felted Tweed.
I like those colors but I also haven’t seen that yarn lately either. Heck, it’s been almost 4.5 years since I ordered it. What I did discover is that I ordered the Rowan Felted Tweed the same day I made the blog post about the sweater and the yarn. That makes me believe that I ordered the Cascade from The Loopy Ewe, then I kept thinking about using the Felted Tweed, found a source for that and ordered it also. Who knows what I did or why I did it? But, why do I have 10 colors of Felted Tweed and only 6 colors of Cascade?
The pattern is Hedgerow and it is available here. I don’t suppose there’s a chance anyone would like to knit that pattern with me??
The funny thing is . . this is what I wrote on the blog in February, 2015:
My plan is to work on it just a little each day . . when Vince is at work so I won’t have any distractions, put it away after a while and not get so absorbed in it that it’s all I want to do but . . I can hardly wait to finish it!
I can hardly wait to finish it? That was over four years ago and I haven’t started it! And “when Vince is at work”?? That isn’t happening ever again.
My plan this afternoon is to search for this yarn! Wish me luck. I’ll be happy to find either grouping. Chances are slim that I’ll find both of them.
