There are some people (anal, obsessive compulsive, geeky) who should not be allowed access to particular websites (Ravelry). On my dining room table sits two weeks worth of unread mail. I now know the dye lots of almost every skein of yarn I own. See the problem?
Yes, knitting fans, Ravelry opened it's door and I waltzed in. Why am I, the anti-follower, a little stoked? Because now, on the odd occasion (every day) when I am perusing patterns at work I can instantly check my online stash to see if I have a suitable yarn. I'm not really there for the forums or the groups or the display of F.O.'s. No, I just wanna know what's hiding in my Rubbermaid containers at home.
Sure, I uploaded a few pics of F.O.'s just to prove I could actually knit but the majority of my effort has been spent inputting my stash. And heck, I certainly seem to have a lot of pink and purple yarn. And single skeins. I mean really, would it kill me to actually buy more than one ball of yarn at a time? Or perhaps my subconscious has been contemplating a descent into Fair Isle madness for some time now.
So moving along ... Here we have today's addition to the ol' stasharoonie.
Knit Picks Merino Style in the colorway "Mint", dye lot 84289. I also bought a ball in the colorway "Iris", dye lot 9918. Fair Isle. Yeah, yeah. Still on that kick. In fact, my Pink & Purple Pirate 'Paca Hat is almost done! Like 12 more rows, knit the liner and presto, another hat I'll never wear. Why that's almost as exciting as photographing balls of yarn. Woe is me, dudes. Woe.
