Yarn Snob

A few years ago, I went through a spate of yarn snobbery. I unloaded all of my acrylic, and vowed to knit only natural fibres.

This move has now backfired.

See, I’m trying to knit mostly from the stash this year, as we’ve established that I may have a slight problem with buying ALL THE THINGS. I’m not going ‘cold sheep’ as some knitters are, but I am trying to chill the sheep a bit.

Enter the latest HPKCHC challenge – blanket squares. The group requests 8×8 squares, made from worsted weight acrylic or acrylic blends. I have worsted wool, or surprisingly soft sport weight acrylic that I use for baby items, but no worsted acrylic survived the purge of yarn snobbery.

I’m going to have to buy a skein of acrylic, just to make some blanket squares.

Oh, well… I should probably feed the stash anyway. It’s been grumbling recently, and I don’t want to make it mad. I’d be sorely outnumbered.
