Further Down the Rabbit Hole

Yes, yes I do have yarn.
Seen at the FiberTrain Festival in Nampa, ID
Well, if you've been keeping an eye on my sidebars measuring input and output, you'll notice that the output has gone up...a whole .08 from Friday. This is progress-one row at a time. However, the input has also gone up...and is now more than a mile ahead of the output. And I have 2 more skeins that should be coming in Tuesday that haven't yet been counted for (because it doesn't till it actually gets into the house!).
These just so happen to be the lovelies that have come home with me since last week-two of them picked up today at the FiberTrain Festival in Nampa, ID.
From left to right we have...
Cascade Heritage Sock Yarn (my workhouse!) 75% Superwash Merino, 25% Superwash in 5626 (Turquoise)
Alexandra's Crafts Timberline Ice (new to me) 63% Superwash Merino, 20% Silk, 15% Nylon, 2% Silver in Water [bought today]
Greenwood Fiberworks Gold Dust (new to me) 75% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon, 5% Stellina in Tiger Lily
Greenwood Fiberworks Star Dust (new to me) 75% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon, 5% Stellina in Lavender Hedgerow [bought today]
Nomadic Yarns Twisty Sock (my self-stripping!) 80% Merino, 20% Nylon in Campus Visit

The current plan is to knit as much as humanly possible between now and August 14th. However, I am really going to challenge myself to limit yarn input till I catch up a little. The next time I foresee myself buying yarn is June 13th because one of the area LYSs is doing a bit of an event (including a sidewalk sale). And almost definitely on June 18th because I want the Special Delivery tag from ESK. There is also a high likelihood I will buy yarn when I am in Portland in July...because TwistedPDX now sells Republic of Wool and I've been eyeing her pretties on her site and via Instagram. And I may or may not have been looking last night...

In other fun news, I chatted with two different friends about some possible travel plans this year. Extremely tentative still but it would make me so, so happy if they worked out! One of the trips would be Disneyland in October with one of my bestie and the other would be to see a good friend for a long weekend. Fingers crossed over here!


  1. Oooooooooooooooooo....the new yarns are lovely!

    1. I am most excited! Beginning the plotting and planning stages as to what they might become...just some happen to have a couple of other things on the needles though that might have to be finished first...

  2. Oh your yarn is absolutely gorgeous! I'm so jealous. I hope you get a chance to take some of that beautiful yarn on the road to Disneyland with your friends. October is a fantastic time to go,e specially during the week when many families are still in school ...

    1. Thank you! I'm really excited to bust into one of the Greenwood skeins sometime in the next few weeks hopefully...gotta finish a few other things first though!
      It's been a long time since I've been to Disneyland so fingers crossed...we would actually be there on the weekend as we both have work during the week. We're pretty excited just to be going though...and to be seeing each other again!
