I went thrifting today and I got to the point when I had to put down the things I was carrying and just walk away.... a set of Empire Strikes Back curtains? three 7-inch ceramic busts of pensive children? aluminum flour/sugar/coffee canisters circa 1935? enough already.
it's getting to be a bit much. I love this stuff. love it. but do I really need it? no. our house is getting ridiculous. but, I did buy a granny-square blanket. it's my second one, and I don't think that qualifies as a collection yet, but, the next time I see another one for under $10, I'm buying it. so, collection it is.
also, I found the greatest yarn for my dollies, Debbie Bliss Donegal Chunky Tweed, 100% wool from Ireland. the photos make the color look too brash. it is beautiful and subtle and makes me wish I wasn't so lazy and would learn how to knit already.
