So you pick out the yarn for a sweater here and there thinking that you’ll be able to knit it next week, or maybe next month. Before you know it, you’re standing in the back room of Webs during their tent sale fondling Berrocco Softwist in one hand and calling the 800# on the back of your credit card with the<img width="160" height="120" style="border: 0px none ; float: right; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" src="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/03-31-2006b005sm.jpg" alt="" /> other – you know, just ‘cuz you’re curious to know if you have $100 or $50 (or $5 – which is usually the case) available. If you are very, very lucky (which I was) you find out that the credit card company decided to up your limit and lo and behold…you’ve got $300 worth of ‘wiggle room’ and you’re hyperventilating. You’re also looking at your watch doing calculations as to when the ‘other half’ will be arriving home and whether you’ll be able to sneak the bags into the house without him noticing. ;o)<p>Time passes and after a fiber festival (or two) you’ve got enough yarn to start your own Ebay shop. Or, enough to cover your grandmother’s dining room table that can comfortably seat twelve.</p><p><a title="Click to see the Stash." target="_blank" href="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/stash-03-31-06.jpg">Here it is, in all its glory.</a> This file is six pictures that I ‘knit’ together and they weren’t cooperating very well so when you zoom in you’ll be able to see the seams. Sorry about that :o( I did a little bit of a <a target="_blank" href="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/03-31-2006b-005a.jpg">zoom in on the sock yarn</a> for those who might be interested in that kinda thing. <i>Oh, I found another basket of Lorna’s Laces and Artyarns after I did these photos. I’m *not* dragging it all out again so just imagine another six skeins of sock yarn in there….um yeah and this also doesn’t include the four or five small shopping bags of ‘tag sale’ yarn stuffed under the table. *ahem* What?!?!</i></p><p>K – if you need me I’ll be zooming around all the other flasher’s sites. Drooling.</p>

  • StoryTime Sampler 3 February 2016

    I don’t know if this project will stay here, but I wanted a spot to put all of my photos for the current sampler I’m cross stitching.

    02-03-2016

    I’ve put this on ‘hibernating’ status since I’m trying to decide what to do - I kind of want to pick my favorite 6 and make a mini sampler since there are some books in the mix that aren’t my favorites
