I've been thinking about Fall in Love with Your Stash Fridays for awhile. Then I thought, well, it can also be Fall in Love...with a great book .... or a great recipe ... or song... or whatever I'm loving at that moment!! Mostly, its going to be yarn! But I'm giving myself some room on this one! And I'm really going to try to embrace my treasured stash!! The next few months I'm going to have some challenges (e.g., Stitches West, Sock Camp)!
What a perfect way to start! I had picked this out last week because it has been marinating in my stash for a good TWO years! Socks that Rock mediumweight Bleeding Hearts. A color that up until Wednesday (my birthday no less!) had not been available on the Blue Moon website for awhile.
I guess you could say maybe I was saving this colorway until I knew I could easily buy more of it. And then on my birthday Tina goes and updates with lots and lots of new and old colors! And typically, on my birthday, well I would have gone a bit crazy.
But I tried to be strong. I will be so very weak when I see it in person in two weeks at Stitches. I can just wait two weeks. So instead, I took pictures of the lovely skein I already had!
It is gorgeous!
And I fell in love with it all over again. Like it was brand new! And I wound it up and cast on a gathered scarf immediately!! And I love that even more! I'll save those pics for another day!
Tell me, what are you all in love with today?
Happy Valentine's Day!!
