I don't have much knitting progress to report, or weaving for that matter. I am totally enjoying working on Orangina and Green Gable, but they don't look too different from earlier this week. So I thought I'd go for the old stand by...
I recently decided to go through my stash and see how much of the pretty stuff I could cram in my glass cabinet. (Trust me, the closet is crammed with other yarn, but it's not even worth looking at, just a bunch of leftovers and one skein wonders.)
Clearly, I am buying a lot of green-ish yarns lately. Greens usually only live on the bottom shelf with the browns. I had to shove some up with the blues and purples. I realized that in the past month I have purchased multiple skeins of yarn that are incredibly close in color.
I do love green. Well, I've simplified them into the color category "green". My live-in art director could easily spend the next 20 minutes arguing with me over what those colors are - grey-blue-green, yellow-green, grey-teal.
Rock on - that just justifies my purchases! They are not really the same.
However, it is time to stop reaching for the greens. I am simply out of room and the yarn now pushes itself up to the glass and wimpers "knit me!"
But uh, there is room in the reds/pinks/oranges category. So I'm filling that hole there in the upper left with this from here. What? It's totally in limited supply and you can't just go ANYWHERE to get it.
Wait a second...who am I trying to justify this to?
