|11:57 pm - knitpicks catalog...|
Oh man, I'm up way too late and got looking through the KnitPicks catalog, saw some yarn that had kept catching my eye (Graham of Menteith), and got the wonderful idea that I could knit a sweater out of hand-dyed wool in beautiful blue colors for $18 (as opposed to a couple hundred, say if I bought the yarn at a local yarn store or festival). Alas, other people were faster than I to jump on the clearance price.
Did I mention that it apparently takes me three months to make a pair of socks, and I have five pairs of socks in queue, six after the next dyeing adventure I have planned? And that acrylic Justin gave me that could be a vest or something, and probably other stuff I'm forgetting. I've been a knitter for a year and a half and now I'm really starting to understand how stashes develop.
I could always order Bare worsted yarn from KnitPicks, maybe pick out a few more acid dyes, and get a sweater in just the perfect colors that way, too...
