Before. Our dining/kitchen area. Meet my Blue Spode collection (see, I love blue).
To clarify, there is not more yarn tucked in the drawer, this was for photo shoot only. I know, I know.
Up close and purty.
My log cabin blanket ingredients :) Blue :)
I blame this a bit on all my knit blogging friends who have shown me all the beauty that is Blue Moon. And then I blame my two trips to Oregon this past year, Stitches West (last year and this year), and Purlescence Yarns (they are only 20 minutes away!!).
Finally, a little taste of the "not-blue" stash. I will say, the "Blues" are really the only yarn that I've seemed to "collect". Others I love and I'm more project-driven (well, at least now I am). Here are some of my favorites- a new favorite Sheep Shop (like Manos, softer though, love!), Malabrigo (yummy), Naturwolle (more lovely colors), some Karabella Aurora Bulky (sproing!), and then we have Colinette. I have to thank LittleMy from the KnittyCoffeeshop for getting me hooked on their yarns. What a great secret pal she was...and now she's a great swapper!
I will say, all of my "blue" yarns and the favorites above sure do make me smile. I LOVE the colors and the feel. Blue Moon truly is my happy pill. This will continue to be my downfall. I know. I'm already trying to convince Rowan to drive with me to the Black Sheep Gathering in June, just because Blue Moon will be there! I know. Maybe we should change the name of the blog. I know. I better go knit.
