10 Phrases That Will Break a Knitter’s Diet

1) It’s cashmere!

2) This is the last skein in that (color)(dye lot).

3) Did you know the shop down the road is having a sale?

4) I have a ton of yarn I don’t need.  Do you want it?

5) Look at this new yarn we got in!

6) Oooh, touch this! Isn’t it soft?

7) I’ll buy you yarn if you make me (insert item here).

8) This company is going out of business.

9) Are you sure you have enough for that project?

10) Limited Edition


Number 10  is what got me last night.  I heard “Only 50 skeins of this yarn were made” and immediately snatched one of the 8 remaining skeins from the table.  The colors are gorgeous (Lorna’s Lace Solemate in “Bertha Honore Palmer”, made exclusively for Windy Knitty at Vogue Knitting Live).  Ellette wants me to make her fingerless gloves from it, but I don’t know if I have the heart to make anything from it.  It may become souvenir stash.  Although, I have had an itch to make a cozy shawlette.  Any suggestions?

    I have a Loopy Yarns skein and a Sifu Design Studios yarn, this would have completed the trifecta!

    I thought about calling you. I should have. I’m sorry. Everything got snatched so quickly!
