The Last Yarn Pr0n Friday of 2006
Yes, my friends. We have come to the last friday of 2006, thus the last YPF of the year. Too bad I did my "Best of" last week. Ah well. I do have something new for you this week. This is Joann's Sensations Bellazo Collection Petalo in the color Orange. I got 15 balls of this stuff for $1.50 each. Who can resist at that price? I've already started a sweater out of it. Yes, I may end up looking like a muppet raped me, but this stuff is so soft, and the color so pretty, I have to give it a chance. Something simple, bottom up, yoke neck. Pray for this sweater. May it be a success. In the future, you may see new pics of yarn you've seen before. Why is that? Well, I've decided to try this "knitting from your stash" thing. Here are my yarn resolutions for all to see: My plan is to only by yarn in the following scenarios: 1) With the credit I build up working at the shop. 2) When I'm on vacation (souvenir yarn ya know) 3) If I get to go to any fiber festivals. 4) If I swap for it, or get a Gift Certificate to somewhere other then the shop I work in. I'd like to knit up what I have to the point where it all looks nice and pretty in the closet and shelves I have dedicated to it. Also, to finally knit up some Lorna's Laces, Koigu and STR. Once can only covet and pet them for so long. I'm already working on the last one. =) Hope y'all have a Happy New Year! I, unfortunately, will not be able to ring it in in grand style. I have to work on Monday. Phooey.
