Finished: Idlewood

I guess my last post came too soon.  I had no idea that I would embark on a knitting marathon yesterday which included binding off Idlewood.  Now that it is completed and I've had an opportunity to test out the fit (I never did on the needles, not sure why), I am actually quite in love with the color.  The pattern is really great. I can see myself knitting this again and again and again.  I opted not to do sleeves even though I had plenty of yarn left over (including a rogue skein which was hiding in my stash)... 

Speaking of stash, since the purchase of our new platform bed I have been pondering a way to store my yarn without actually having oodles of clutter and drawers around the bedroom. We have never had a bed which allowed us to shove stuff underneath, so after a trip to Home Depot I now have about 1/3 of my yarn hidden out of view which is a big improvement over having skeins in every nook and cranny. 

And even though I came across a slew of things that made me think, "..forgot about that.." I am still dreaming of my birthday splurge... a sweater quantity of Madelinetosh?  Differing skeins of something luscious like Malabrigo Worsted?  A whole lot of work horse yarns like 220?  Ahh, the possibilities are endless.

  1. You can never have too much yarn, and you can especially never have too much Madelinetosh.
