Oh this yarn is such a bad influence. I'll try to stay strong though.

LOL. I just had this giant hank (900 yards of cotton chenille) bring it to work today so I can get it wound up into a giant cake for a Clapotis! Great minds think alike... And I fixed my site; hubby set the registration up to deter spammers. Sorry!

Wow! You are way stronger than I am. Resisting Hill Country? That takes strength.

I just got some Hill Country Yarn on Monday myself, and it's already in a cake. Last night at yoga I had an epiphany for the kind of pattern I want to devise for the socks. Hopefully I'll be casting on this weekend!

Martina said...

Heh-heh.
You know, that yarn is awful convincing! I would have caved in by now! You are so strong to have resisted!

Kelly said...

Maybe a you should listen to the yarn. It would be a great yarn to work with for Project Spectrum!

Nathalie said...

don't worry about the embossed leaves sock - just wind it and cast it on! I'll finish your EL sock for you

Oh lovely! I love Hill Country Yarns! Go ahead, let it speak to you! :)

Katt said...

looooooove that colour wool!

Dont listen to it! Once you have wound it into a ball it will keep stalking you!!!

I casted on for a pair of quick socks in brown for project spectrum..got 1 row dont and found a join in the wool. Took it as a sign that I was meant to finish something else before knitting the socks so frogged it and went back to some UFOs! lol

Oh heck, that yarn is lovely, wind away and cast on. I finally finished a pair of Jaywalkers that took two months to complete! It was slow and unenjoyable knitting. I say have fun. The browns are lovely too.

Nery said...

Karen, you are hilarious! It must be the yarn making you delirious!!! BTW, I happen to love the country hills yarn - its BEEEAUUUTIFUL!

JessaLu said...

To hell with being strong - you need more than one project to keep you happy with knitting in general - cast on! ;o)

Chelle said...

Glad to see you wound it up, for Project Spectrum, of course.

I have yarn it my stash that I just love to look at in hank form. I'm afraid I won't like it better in a ball, LOL!
