I wish I had someone to say "knit THIS with THIS yarn". Would I listen? That would be the question.
My girls are good at giving me some direction with my knitting, but it's most definitely my job to be the boss of them (though they test that theory almost every single day), so it's easy to say "ah, maybe..., maybe not". The Big Guy just stears clear of these types of conversations, he knows it's a never ending deal and I'll change my mind 100 times.
Why is it so hard to make "yarn" decisions sometimes? I want to use what I have, but then - I'll have to use what I have. Then I won't have it anymore. Well, I WILL, but not in that lovely twisted skein. I know, I'm crazy. (It's a full moon??) This is a totally quirky side to my personality. I hate to use things up. Silly me. I've always been like that, I often won't use the "last" of almost anything. Just so I'll still have it.
Have you seen this new yarn? I saw it in a recent knitting magazine and then checked out the site. It's an interesting way to sell sock yarn! I'd like to actually see these colorways in person tho, the pics aren't so great on my monitor. I read where someone said they'd most likely wind it in a ball to use anyway to get out the kinks. I'd have to see how kinky it was first I think. What I like is that it's almost another art form to view the colorway in. Kinda Cool.
Next year. I may just buy TWO of everything. That may just help make things easier.
OTN: Trying sock patterns for Mother's Day socks that probably won't be delivered by Mother's Day (luckily Mom is quite understanding).
