    When was seventeen, I decided I wanted to learn how to knit. I looked up directions online, got really excited, and ran downstairs to find my mother and inform her of my plans.

    She looked at me, sighed, and said, 'Why can't you go out and get drunk, like a normal seventeen year old?'

    I'm still yarn obsessed.

I posted this in a LiveJournal community, but I thought I’d put it out in the blog-world, too.

  • Seven skeins of Lion-Brand Cotton-Ease in ‘Pistachio.’ Three of the skeins have labels – three have been knit from and reballed. All same dye-lot. I checked.
  • Two skeins of Lion-Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick in ‘Fisherman.’ New with labels.
  • Two skeins of Lion-Brand Landscapes in ‘Autumn Trail.’ New with labels.
  • Two skeins of Koigu PPPM in ‘P102.’ Pinky-purpley-greeny.

    Koigu! Color is accurate on my monitor.

  • If you’re into stripey socks, I also have a few assorted balls of self-patterning sock yarn (some KnitPicks Simply Stripes, some Regia Jaquard). Some have been knit from, some don’t have labels, but all are there. Very grab-baggy. I’ll throw them in with something else, if you’d like. I keep on thinking I’m going to start knitting socks, and then it just doesn’t work out for me.
  • I also had a few cones of Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Bulky that are now balled. A large ball of Tahiti Teal (I would estimate it at least 200 yards, probably more) and aprox. 100 yards of Oregano (still on cone, would probably ball it to ship). [Pls note that I am estimating the yardage here – I’m trying to be a bit generous, but I don’t have an accurate quick way to measure them.] Color chart is here.

    Tahiti Teal and Oregano Lamb’s Pride Bulky. Poland Spring bottle is for size comparision. Color is accurate on my monitor

All yarn is from a smoke-free/cat-friendly home.

What would I like? Almost anything heavy-worsted weight (knit on US10-11s, like Wool-Ease Chunky, Manos del Uruguay, etc – but not more Lamb’s Pride Bulky. The mohair makes me itch like crazy). Soft yarn for this hat. KnitPicks gift-certificates.
