Fiber Friday!

Since I am without the means to increase my stash (and really, given the space alloted for said stash, I shouldn’t increase it, even if I have the means), I’m starting this new thing to live vicariously through the internet and to do some virtual window-shopping. For as long as I remember to do it I’ll find some yummy fiber on the interwebs and share it here.

Today’s lusty sheep-based product is on etsy, and is making my little jealous place hurt, as it is a vast quantity of wool, and is also quite lovely:

Go buy from Autumnoak! Now! So I don’t have to be sick with unrequited fiber lust!

And then, because I can’t stop myself (similar to the situation I found myself in with respect to the catered Flying Biscuit grits), I kept looking and discovered this:

Damn. This is probably the worst bit of masochism I have subjected myself to in quite a while. So once again, please save me from myself and go buy some fiber. (Dang! This seller has only good stuff! I mean, seriously! I keep clicking, hoping that something will suck and save me from further lust, and it just never does! This is especially tempting, as I am fond of blues and greens.)

Can you tell my newfound competence with spinning has completely overshadowed my knitting efforts? No? Well, it has.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
