and so my yarn stash grew. a lot.
I think maybe this quantity of yarn can be blamed on new mama hormones. We didn’t didn’t find out what the sex of the baby was while I was expecting. Once she came, I was happy to be able to sort through my knitting queue (I had lined up many girl AND boy patterns — to be ‘ready’) and so naturally, I needed yarn. And naturally, some for my other two children so they didn’t feel left out, right? naturally.
And so this week my stash grew by … this much:
These are for a mouse project. Elizabeth recieved the book Phoebe’s Sweater for christmas and loves it. Perhaps her favorite recent book. And so I ordered yarn for the mouse, her dress & sweater. If I love the sweater, I’ll order the same yarn for Elizabeth & Juliette’s sweaters as well — but didn’t want to order all that yarn without first having tried it.
and these are cascade eco + — I couldn’t resist the sale price of them — so I got orange for a vest for Alexandre (who’s requested a hood!) and the pink & purple to create something for Elizabeth & Juliette — not sure exactly what yet… Pants for Miss Juliette I think and a vest for Elizabeth…
and now I shall log off the computer and go KNIT…. while hoping this is the last short-ish (please oh please) stretch of recovery. I would love to get OUTSIDE before winter is all gone!
