the road to hell is paved with good intentions.... i think i'm a KAL flunkie. i seem to just gain and gain, barely losing grams, ounces, yards or meters ... or miles! what's a girl to do when someone tempts her with free yarn?!
any smart knitter would do as i did, ... snatch it up, and start knitting or crocheting it, use it up before anyone notices.
my weakness this time?
muench's string of pearls . 6 balls of worsted wt. red hot sizzling sparkling cotton, perfect for another chickami.
i cast on a couple of nights ago, and am knitting with ball #4. it should only take 5 balls + a smidge of #6.
if i were really sneaky, i wouldn't be posting this until it's finished!
i also ended up with about 10-12 cakes of classic elite's rockland cotton. this is an aran wt. cotton, each cake has about 173 yds. my initial plans for this yarn was to crochet or knit more washcloths, potholders, dishcloths, and hotpads ... in other words ... chickens and cows!
why did i let myself slip with these new (to me) yarn acquistions? well, because my stash is primarily wools. and it's summer. and i want to knit, or crochet, with cotton. there. i said it!
