The picture below is of 18 out of the 20 skeins I now have (not counting the skein that I was swatching with but doesn't match in dye lot with the rest of these guys). I'm not going to lie, I winced when I swiped my card. But it sure beats running out of yarn while binding off.
So I've spent that last few days watching lots of Magnum, P.I. and knitting this monster. It will be an epic blanket when I'm done. My knitting prowess will be worshiped. Well, at least by Scooter. He is quite fond of knit blankets. Although for now it just looks like a a basket of noodles.
On a slightly separate note... and perhaps this is silly since I haven't even finished this book, but I'm already fantasizing about my next book. Because, apparently, I just love to torture myself with long term projects. No instant gratification for me. (I really could use some instant gratification right about now.)
