So many yarns. So little time to knit.
Or maybe I should give up sleeping.... Hmmm. Now that's a thought. Maybe not a good one, though.

I had no clue as to the wide world of yarns awaiting me, beckoning me into their warm, soft embrace.

Ahhh, pure blissful, decadent delight.
I had no idea that day that I first wandered into the yarn shop in Stratford that it would be a life-changing event. Even when I left with my first pair of knitting needles and a couple of balls of Katia Triana scarf yarn, I had no idea what was to follow.

After my first couple of scarves, I started scouring the area of more scarf yarns. I found both yarn stores in my hometown of Kitchener. At that point in time, only one carried the scarf yarns. Different from the ones carried in Stratford. Then I found more scarf yarns in Lens Mills. The hunt was on. The quest had begin. The thirst for yarn that could not be assuaged with only one type.
Thus began the beginning of the making of a yarn junkie. A saga that continues on to this day.
See you next week. Until then ... happy knitting - or whatever you do to stay sane.
