Why can't puffins eat pancakes instead?

I'm using a ball of Knitpicks (that I ordered forever ago) to make a pair of armwarmers. Just in time for summer.
I'm headed to South Carolina this weekend- and that means 30 hours (roundtrip) of driving.  But only 1/3 of it will be done by me.  The rest will be filled with knitting & reading cheesy novels. 
My stash is mostly acrylic, too.  The majority of it came free.  I don't really have much money tied up in my stash (I have very few "nice" yarns that I actually purchased). 
Littleone, I've thought about making blankets for animal shelters.  Maybe you could use up some of your ugly acrylic that way.

we can use craftster for swapping or the yu blog as well..its too complicated if there is yet another site to go to.

hmm i havent gotten my knitpicks catalogue in a while, just look at it and then put it away, hide it!

littleone how much of the sport weight yarn do you have so i can think of a project for you.  im making a bias tank right now with microspun which is sport, maybe you can do a wool version of it?  or double it and make a shrug or a boobholder?

Okay, I've put up a button for the ring on my website. Let me know what you think--colors, design, etc. I'll keep working on it, and when most of us are reasonably happy with it, I'll send it on to Yahaira (you'll need to send me your email, Yahaira because I can't figure out how to send you an attachment otherwise)

Wow, thanks vysews!

I see a button for acrylics - do you really deserve acrylic? If you take acrylic, I'll really have to be Greasy Matted Yarn of Unknown Material. Sad

The shades of teal are nice! Will the other buttons be different shades?  I like the spherical design thing. But will it fit just as well if it's "cashmere" or "wool" or "alpaca"? Smiley

What do you think of adding a little period after each of Y.A.R.N., so your clever wording is more obvious?

Like,
Y.arn
A.holics
R.ecovery
N.etwork?

Or is that too redundant?


EDIT: if writing 'cashmere' on the sphere is untenable, how about a background of a tangly, colorful mess of yarn, but lightened, so the words can fit across it w/o obstruction?

Thanks, Keridiana. Those are good suggestions--I'll keep working on it. In honesty, I think I deserve maybe a cotton or wool since I haven't bought anything and am actually decreasing my stash. Yeah! I returned some stuff to Elann today, and I plan to donate some stuff away that I know I'll never use. I was going to post some stuff for sale/trade this weekend. So I'm making progress!

I was going to do the following buttons... I figured it's best to keep the rules simple since it's just for fun anyway, and we can post the "definitions" on the ring blog. Something like

Acrylic--I'm working on it!
Cotton--keeping my stash stable
Wool--wittling down my stash
Alpaca--I've got yarn for no more than 3 planned projects on hand
Cashmere--I've only got the yarn for the project I'm currently working on

Yes, vysews, you should definitely be cotton or wool so that I can at least be at acrylic after my Elann fracas. If I keep whittling and don't buy anything more, and can manage to inch to 100 balls/skeins, I can get an acrylic-cotton blend or something! Wink not to complicate your system.  I like your levels, they are perfect! Don't need to get too depressed -- the response may be to throw one's hands up in the air and give it all up!

Okay, well, I've gone and promoted myself to wool!!  Wink

Yahaira, I just emailed you some gif's. I'll work on shorter gif's in a different format this weekend. For some reason, the blog couldn't be accessed a little while ago, but it's back now.
