Y is for Yarn

Y is for YARN!  I believe I have reached SABLE* status, check it out (I know there is yarn that has not been photographed).  As I was pondering my Y entry, I wondered if using yarn would be a cop out of sorts, but after updating the stash spreadsheet and photographic some new acquisitions, I thought not.  I love yarn.  I love it’s texture.  I love the lanolin in natural wool.  I love the colors, both natural and dyed.  I love what yarn can create.   I’m not a yarn sniffer, but I am a yarn cuddler.  I’ve discovered that I am a yarn snob.  I love natural fibers, especially wool.  I wish I had more time to create with it.

  1. I’m a yarn snob, too. Nothing wrong with that, I say.

  2. Hee hee – I would’ve loved to have seen the expressions of anyone who noticed you taking the chain link fence picture!

  3. Yarn — duh — what a perfect “Y”

    I appreciate lovely yarns, and my favorite is wool, but i don’t consider myself a snob. i’ll knit with almost anything as long as knitting with it doesn’t hurt my hands or my eyes.

    and i love the picture.

    i’m a yarn face rubber. that’s how i can tell if it’s soft enough, it has to pass the face rub.

  4. Yup, that’s quite a stash!!! Heh. Good for you!

  5. Wow. Nice stash!! And I love the use of chain link in your photos. Very clever.

  6. loved the slide show but how many bags did you carry to the playground — gathering into one place and then trying to take it somewhere is a little scary when I think about it

  7. Wow, lots of great stuff. I thought I saw some Helårsgarn too, he he, thats scandinavian. And I also saw some beautiful purple yarn, I really love that colour.
    I also wish you a happy Christmas with a lot of joy, hapiness and knitting.

  8. LOL! That picture of the yarn in the chain link is great! I prefer natural fibers but I’ll knit with just about anything if it’s pleasant to knit and suits the project.
