a knitter navigates through life

Saturday, February 9, 2008

you know this knitting thing is getting out of hand when . . .

I love sweaters. Love. Them. I own, well, probably more sweaters than I want to admit in public. I got into knitting for the sweaters. (Although if I had realized how much work it would be, I might have had second thoughts. But I didn't, so I didn't, and I'm glad it worked out that way.) I love everything about sweaters. Owning them. Wearing them. Shopping for them. Only, I noticed myself doing something a little odd lately.

Instead of shopping for sweaters, I'm leafing through catalogs and magazines and ripping out the pictures of sweaters I like. I'm not shopping for sweaters. I'm shopping for sweater inspiration. All I can say is, the owner of my favorite LYS is going to be thrilled with the increase in my yarn-buying habits.

Go, Kim, Go!

I find myself window shopping for sweaters because most I like I think "oh I could make that!". Course I haven't but why buy a sweater when you can get all the enjoyment out of making it.
