With all the accumulation of things, when do you consider a house officially full?
Two New Acquisition Events
Recently, we’ve brought more “stuff” into the house in two very different events. The first was a few of my purchases from my local yarn store (Twist Knitting and Spinning) and the second was another mushroom foraging adventure that yielded pounds of mushrooms.
First the stash acquisition…
- Three balls of Zauberball by Schoppel (two in a great blue/brown and a third in a colorway I already have a couple of balls of in my stash)
- 2 hanks Madeline Tosh Merino Light (no one does vibrant colors like her…had to have them)
- 3 sets Knitter’s Pride Karbonz Double Pointed needles (I’m really loving these needles and will probably get a set or two more every time I shop from now on)
The second acquisition was actually made by Thaddeus and a friend of his.
This is just one of two baskets overflowing with chanterelles. The other basket was bigger and equally as filled beyond the brim with meaty fresh mushrooms.
I think our house is now officially full.
I still have the three projects I’m working on in progress.
I’ve added another row to the crochet scarf.
I’ve added a couple of inches to the Mini Mochi baby blanket.
And I’ve ripped back the sock I found in my WIP’s pile back to the foot and re-worked the heel using a modified Andersson Heel.
The yarn is some Fortissima sock yarn, but you’ll note I am using my new Karbonz needles and I’m loving them.
