Nevertheless, the insatiable yarn demon makes me hungry for more. So, instead of impulsively shopping for yarn, I'm going to compile myself a wish list of desiderata. I'm in the Stash & UFO Bustalong over at http://bustalong.blogspot.com/ and members there have pledged not to buy more yarn until April 15th, so I'm going to try very hard to stay on the wagon until then. I hope that the wish list will help to stave off my yarn hunger in the meantime.
I really want to make it, and I'm coveting the yarn so much my mouth waters. My yarn diet is not helped by the fact that there's an offer in Knit Today: if you buy 4 hanks of Giotto, you get the children's Jelly All Stars pattern book. This is going to be hard to resist. I wonder if I could get Josef to stump up some of the cost of the yarn for Mother's Day?
I don't know why I'm craving this so badly when I have a treasure chest of silk by Tilli Tomas in the stash. I just know I want it. There is not even a special offer attached or anything. This can definitely wait unti I'm off the yarn diet.
Item no 3: More Colinette. I want one of their kits to make a Perugino throw.
Item no 4: RYC Soft Lux. I have this in three shades already. I'm knitting the Grandiflora shawl in creamy beige and a light grey-blue. I also have stash in a slightly truer blue that I'm going to use for a cable hoodie. It's just that I am craving the pink shade as well.
