7. you're nothing but a yarn lover!

Maybe I will stop numbering my posts after the tenth one? Maybe. But I kinda like it.


I love yarn. Never in my life would I have thought I would be a fiend for yarn. But good yarn is expensive (that is NOT a myth!). So, sometimes I go to the yarn outlet to load up on discontinued yarns. Ohhhh does that place fill some void inside me. I walk out feeling invigorated, refreshed, inspired, anxious to get home and start knitting pronto. And I don't even need to get that much to get that feeling. It's kind of like, well, drugs. I'm hooked on yarn. I'm a yarn addict. Eek. I wonder if there's a support group.

Here's my stash from when I went on my birthday:


I've been knitting lots. But for no one in particular. I just do that. I just knit and knit and knit. But I get an idea and I have to do it; simple ideas - I don't have any grand shawl patterns, but I am whipping up a few fingerless mitts patterns. You'll see...later ;)

(sneak peek) I just patterned & knit an extra small pair of fingerless mitts that my daughter modeled for me:


I saw these candy cane dipped oreos on pinterest and HAD to make some for my (good) neighbors (definitely Not for the bad ones. harhar). So, I put the kids to work:

(don't mind the preteen. He really was having fun!)

and here're the final goodies:

(okay, yes, I admit it - we ate a few!!)

I rock. Can I get a what!

xxooo, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and happy everything else, too......Gilda
