Or ten thousand. Hard to say. There are some things I just don't want to know.
A while ago, I saw 4 Jahreszeiten - Herbst. (Translates to 4 Seasons - Fall) I swear by all that is, I am obsessed by this pattern. Or the yarn combination. I don't know what it is, but I was compelled to have it.
So I do. I bought the pattern right out. I never do that anymore.
I now have the yarn.
Two EV skeins showing their range of colours
And two EM.
These four skeins are the other part of my stash-much-fest. Plus one more. A little something plain.
That is for another shawl that has just captured my attention. I have the green and yellow Kauni in my stash already and just needed the cream to set it off. (You know, though I have only knit a little with Kauni so far, it is a yarn that I could knit the rest of my days with and never tire of.)
Back to the Fall shawl... The only thing I have to do is find my longest needles in a small size and I am good. I worry that I have to finish a project in the WIP bin before I can start this, but well, what will be will be. Maybe that is a good thing.
It might not be an itch I can scratch immediately by starting knitting, but soon. Very soon. I have a baby thing or two and a sweater or two to work on but it is within sight.
Did I mention I see long into the future? The long view explains my stash, doesn't it.
