The yarn is always...greener?
This means that I need to knit from The Stash. The Stash always looks fine to me when I'm already knitting something. Now that I have nothing on the needles, nothing in The Stash looks knit-worthy. Kinda the equivalent of standing in front of a closet full of clothes and pouting about having nothing to wear, I guess.
I want new yarn!
I was bemoaning my current lack of motivation to my husband last night. In his infinite patience and kindness, Rick listened to my spoiled whining and then said a remarkable thing. He said, "You could knit something for me in Lion Brand."
You can discern a few things from this comment. First off, I must talk about Lion Brand disparagingly, despite the fact that I knit with it every so often and am interested in trying out some Microspun. Second, Rick would willingly accept a gift knitted with a yarn I speak badly of, just to help me buy new yarn and not break the bank. Third, and possibly most important, my husband is actually listening when I rant and rave about yarn!
What a guy!
