Orangey Goodness

Despite yesterday’s stash enhancement — the one that did not include any orange yarn — orange and I are still amidst a very fulfilling fling:

tulip and sock
I love this yarn (thanks Betty!) and the pattern (thanks Nancy Bush!)

My front yard is also a recipient of the orange (and yellow) love.

bulbs are my kinda gardening

Last night I also started pulling together inventory of the yarn and books [!] I am destashing. Most of the yarn isn’t anything fantastic, but it made me feel better to be able to pull most of it all together. Baby steps…

    So I’m sitting here at work, impatiently waiting for the time to go home and spy that pretty pretty sock yarn in the sun, gasp more than audibly out loud and then have to explain to the girl answering phones why I’m NOT crazy for being enthralled with yarn enough to be vocal about it. I don’t think she gets it but I sure do. That is just beautiful!!

    Beautiful flowers (with beautiful yarn). For seven years I have been promising myself that I would plant bulbs. Every Spring, I kick myself for not doing it. I SWEAR I am going to plant bulbs in my next house!!

    Little steps get you there! That orange yarn is great! There aren’t too many out there….a spring color for sure!

    I love bulbs, too! Imagine my disappointment when I discovered that most bulbs do not grow on the Gulf Coast of Texas!

    It took me awhile to get my act together for my recent destash. When I finally got down to it, I had 3 piles: definitely destashing, maybe destashing, keeping. And then I went through the maybe pile and made some choices to destash. And then one evening, I did the pictures and descriptions. It took some effort, but when I finally posted everything, it felt really great.

    Love the yarn! :)
    Somewhere in the world it is warm enough for the bulbs to come out of the ground. It gives me hope. Bulbs are great, aren’t they? One of those, if you work hard now you will be rewarded even greater later, things in life.

    Is that the “Child’s first sock” pattern from the Vintage Socks book? if so, I knitted that one too and really enjoyed it. It’s a beautiful pattern and they look really pretty with the orange yarn!
