Signs of Addiction

More yarn has appeared at my house and I am at a loss to explain just why. Last month I was virtuously selling off stash and then ... something happened. I think I was using up my Paypal balance and I got carried away. Just a little! Some serious enabling by the ISO group on Ravelry and the Destash blog. I really need to get off of those. And then there was the siren call of a sale at Sonny & Shear ...

It's all beautiful! There's Noro Silk Garden in pinks and purples, which I have a plan for, sort of:

Fleece Artist Merino Sock in Mermaid:

Claudia Hand Painted sock yarn in Plumilicious ...

Dream in Color Smooshy in Some Kind of Summer (I love this already!):

and Dream in Color Classy in Petal Shower, or Shower of Petals, which will make a lovely baby sweater, as soon as someone I know (someone? anyone?) has a baby girl.

Not too terrible ... except of course that there's a sale at a going-out-of-business LYS I really want to go to, and Shop Night at the Knitter's Guild meeting next month ... and it is not like I am exactly churning out the knitted items.

*sigh* I need a budget.

Tomorrow: FO's! I promise!

oooo. That looks so delicious.
I just put myself on a yarn diet too, nothing until the stash is gone (!!) somehow I don't think I'll last.
The dream in Color yarns are so wonderful and sproingy, I haven't knitted with anyhint else you got, so that's all I can say!
Beautiful selections!

The new yarn is gorgeous! I've found lots of tempting new yarns this month as well but need to stop buying every bargain I see.

Lovely, all of it. What's your plan for the Silk Garden? I have some kicking around here I need to make use of.
