The First Step Is Admitting The Problem...

The Knitpicks catalog arrived today. I was already warned that it was on the way, and since I'm saving for Sock Summit 2009 I was planning on skimming and that was it. The warning I got was that there wasn't much new to look at...I already knew I loved the new Organic Cotton, but was managing to hold off on ordering it (so far...)

But as I was listening to Keith Olbermann's interview with Nancy Pelosi, I stopped working on the stockinette sock, and idly picked up the catalog. I was in pretty good shape as I flipped pages.

OMG! Tweed?

City Tweed, to be exact. Dk and worsted weight coming the end of April. In colors that, if true to the catalog photo, make me drool...purples, plums, grays, a blue that rivals my favorite Jo Sharp DK Silkroad Tweed (called Boheme it's what I used to make my Highland Triangle shawl), then also ivory and caramel. IF this new KP's City Tweed is as lovely as the photo? I'm in serious, serious trouble.
Mommie, the first step is to admit you have a problem...let me help? You are addicted to yarn...ADDICTED, do you hear me? Please seek help? Or at least let me nest in it?

I'd never considered something that tweedy for a shawl. Ooh, I have the Folk Shawls book....if I bring any money home from Disney World in May that would be fun.

Oh Meezer, you are such a wise kitty. But there ARE addictions much worse than yarn. :<) Your Mom does have good points too, remember that!

Headbonks, The Ched!

Hugs and Happy Easter

oooh. Mine hasn't come yet. Maybe it should go straight to the recycle bin. I do NOT need to be buying yarn right now.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
