« Oh, The Plans I Have | Main | Stash Sale Extraordinaire.... »

May 28, 2006



Where's that flamethrower - Just Kidding!!!! It's your blog and I believe one can say what they want. Also I more or less agree with you. Funny, I just posted about my weakness for stash enhancing, and I almost didn't because I didn't want people to think I was being self-aggrandizing (a good way to put it)! I don't think I need professional help, yet. I thought through it and landed with you, basically that it hurts no one, I pay the rent on time, and it makes me happy. Life is too short and unpredictable to not do something that makes you so happy (if you can)!!

On to fiber - everything is looking great. You are SO fast! I prefer recumbent bikes as indoor aerobic machines go, too. My knees and hips give me trouble. Just think, you can knit & crochet while exercising!!


Oooh - you're so mean! :) No, I think everything you said is right on. Cece looks great - I love the color, and yea for your new bike! Now I'm really jealous - you can exercise and knit!


Jillian - No worries! The ones who post yarn purchases aren't self-aggrandizing. I was referring to those few who must KEEP drawing attention to their purchases by periodically going on a "yarn diet." That, I think, is a bit self-serving for a few bloggers out there. :)

Yep - Life is definitely too short for yarn angst!

Thanks, Jenn - Believe it or not, I just realized this morning that I can knit & ride at the same time! Knitting, riding & watching TV - the ultimate in multi-tasking! ha!


I hope you know I was teasing when I complained about you reminding me about Katia Jeans... :)


You can knit and exercise At The Same Time???!!! No kidding? Wow! You Are multi-talented! I'm truly amazed! Good for you!

Such temptation on the Internet, what with auction sites and bloggers having destash sales and some trading... Actually I have found some terrific buys and trades on yarns I wouldn't have acquired otherwise, plus an opportunity to try different types of yarns.

Have a great day everyone!


I just wish I could finish garments as quickly as you do! heh. :)

CeCe looks fantastic!

[I periodically do my own yarn diets (alone, not as a Stash-a-long), mostly just to help think more about what I'm buying when I buy it... sorta like how I am trying to buy one hank of something to swatch before I buy a full garment worth. Smarter stash building and budgeting for me? ]


LOL - Sure I knew, Andrea. ;) That wasn't what I was talking about.

Margaret - I haven't actually tried it yet, but if people can knit socks while they walk, surely I'd be able to knit sweaters while I peddle! (Ok - those were definitely famous last words. hehe)

Jess - I try to do the same thing regarding stash & should do it more often. I'm a terrible impulse buyer. Sigh. Still, I do find a use for MOST of what I buy. It's the other 20% or so that I need to work on reducing. :)


The knitting and crocheting blogs that I read the most are interesting ones that I can learn from, and I hope in some way that mine does that too.

I know there's been some controversy about stash enhancement/reduction on blogs, but I love to see all the yarns and supplies.

I get so much out of seeing what you and others have brought and what projects you are into. I think it's great.

I love to share my buying experiences with other too. I'm a working girl who doesn't make a lot of money, but I'm glad I have enough to buy most of the yarn I want, and it's been fun. Perhaps I should cut back, but right now, I don't really want to.


Yep, the no knit/crochet content is my blog right now. Oh well, it is my blog, ha ha...I am hoping this summer I have mor content I hate not being productive.

I agree about the yarn hoarding. To each his own. There are a lot of things that I don't buy that a lot of women do, like makeup so if my pleasure is yarn, so be it. (as long as I pay my bills, right?)

I love your recumbant bike. I have wanted one of those for a long time, but just got a treadmill a few months ago (not that it is getting the use it needs to.)


LOL - Wendy - temporary lulls in knitting content don't count. I'm talking about those who pretty much NEVER knit. :) Not that they have BAD blogs, they just aren't KNITTING blogs.

I really thought the treadmill would be the perfect exercise for me, but the bike has certainly changed my opinion. :)

Vera - you & I have the same blog philosophy, I think. I like to see as much yarn & as many projects as I can on other blogs & I hope I offer lots to see here. :)


I challenge myself and my imagination with stashbusting but never ever will I join an along for it.
If and when I see some yarn I want I get it.
By the way, Ce-ce looks wonderful so far Bron!


Hey there Bron!
Love your views on stash whining vs. yarn sales and mad purchases. I too , love a good yarn purchase; just for the simple fact I can. It doesn't take much to make me happy! Just some delicious yarn!


I'm not jealous over the stash although you have a great one, I'm jealous of that bike. I have a love hate relationship with my treadmill and the recumbent is the one I crush on.

There has been a lot of posts lately complaining about yarn purchases and yarn gifts. It's too bad that people are upset by a bunch of string. But then, we can't always control our feelings.


Well, all I can say is that my blog isn't necessarily about knitting, it's about me.

Believe me, I would love that my blog was 100% about the knitting/crafting I do, but, by golly, my day job gets in the way.
