Cheating...

Ok, that's it! I can't take the PS3 FIRE theme anymore! Even though it's not April yet. But I still have these red/orange/pink UFO's left. Bugger!

(Basic sock, Catriona, Morning Surf Scarf, Anemoi mittens)

I'm going to try to finish at least some of them before the end of March, but I just had to move on.

To more EARTHy yarns. My favorite colors! Green and brown. But holy SHI..........EEEEEEP!!!! I strongly suspect that my yarn has mutated and developed reproductive capabilities. How else do you explain this?

And now you're thinking, "well... that's not too bad", right? Ok, so what if I show you this then?

Some nice dark brown yarny yummyness. Still not rocking your boat? Alrightie then, take this!

If you still don't think I have a slightly abnormal yarn habit, you're probably either immune to yarn, or have a stash the size of a yarn store. And if you know me in real life and you thought I had knitting as a "hobby", I'm out of the closet now. For the love of wool (or alpaca, or heck qiviut, if that's what gets you going), how did this happen?! And keep in mind that this is just part of my stash. Add the red yarns to the mix, and the yarn that belongs in the remaining two PS3 categories, and you have a pretty substantial amount.

To distract you from the yarn madness, I give you two UFO's in the EARTH category.

Little Miss Green Sweater

Or she's not so little anymore. She just needs another sleeve and some sewing, and she'll be done.

And the other star is Miss Ruffled Jacket.

She's pretty much at the same stage as her green sister. Just the sleeve and some sewing left. I can't wait to start knitting with these colors! The FIRE colors make me see red (haha).

WOW! your stash is amazing! what lovely yarns you have ;) jump in and start on earth - i can't blame you! Earth colors feel like "home" to me, so I am quite excited to start them too... however, my stash is not nearly is beautiful as yours!

I want to shop your stash! Those are two incredible sweaters Heidi.

Yes, I might agree, you have a small problem on hand there, but at least you admit to it. Have fun reducing your stash.

You can never have too much green or brown yarn! :D

Muhv said...

The greens and browns are lovely. I'm not sure I could resist either.

Amanda said...

Oh my goodness! Total stash envy here! Your projects are beautiful so it's only right you should have such a great stash though.

Hege said...

Gosh!
You have a lot to choose from.
Love to see what will came out of your needles the next months ;)

Nice stash! I saw your Catriona on Ravelry, I think. I'm definitely going to chart it and work it in the round. Did you shorten the ribbing at the bottom? I'm thinking of doing that since I'm not sure I'm going to have enough yarn. I'm also not sure what size to make since it seems like the pattern has a TON of ease but I'm not going to be wearing anything bulky under it.

oh, you sure have a lot of stash. But I so love your greens... i t i s b e a u t i f u l!! Both the sweaters are gorgeous. And yes, I so can imagine that you want to knit with more peaceful colours!

Å du store, her var det mye fint. Håper virkelig du får ferdigstilt de påbegynte prosjektene for de blir flotte. Garn får en jo aldri nok av, og så lekre farger du har! Lykke til med alle, nye og gamle prosjekter!

What could happen? If my firewalls are on I get kicked off the server during gameplay if I even get in at all. On the Playstation Site they say to enter port numbers but I may have did that wrong so I just take them off completely but only when I play online. Help?
