Ignorance is bliss...

Oh.... Eeeeh.... Seriously? I had no idea I had this much Rowanspun tweed in my stash! I was fondling the Rowanspun Aran to see if it would tell me what it wanted to be, and I decided to see how much 4 ply and DK I had. To get a better overlook, I took all the skeins out of their bags and made a mountain.

From the top, left to right:
Rowanspun 4 ply, Turkish, 10 skeins
Rowanspun 4 ply, Reed, 9 skeins
Rowanspun 4 ply, Squirrel, 10 skeins
Rowanspun DK, Catkin, 3 skeins (is being knitted into Big Green Sweater)
Rowanspun DK, Mist, 2 skeins (leftovers from Tangled Yoke Cardigan)
Rowanspun 4 ply, Sludge, 10 skeins
Rowanspun Aran, Husk, 10 skeins

And some stray balls:
Rowanspun DK, Mist, 1,5 skeins
Rowanspun 4 ply, Reed, 0,5 skeins
Rowanspun 4 ply, Stone, 1,5 skeins (leftovers from Seamless Hybrid)
Rowanspun 4 ply, Turkish, 2 skeins (different dye lot)
Rowanspun 4 ply, Stone, 2 skeins (different dye lot)

Well poke me hard with a knitting needle, I had no idea! Or to be fair, I had to have some idea since they didn't mysteriously appear in my stash out of nowhere. I have Cucumberpatch to thank (or blame) for all of these.

On top of all the existing tweed already living here, I ordered some more Kilcarra tweed from Lavender Yarns. How could i resist. It was 2,95 per skein, in euros!!! This bargain hunting is going to be the death of my credit card... Save some money by buying more, the biggest hoax of all...

I know yarn multiplies in our stash, but why doesn't it multiply enough for whatever project we want, and why doesn't our wallet grow heavier with all the money saved from the self-multiplying yarn????

A blessed sickness.
