T-minus six weeks ’till the end of the yarn diet.
I know, I can’t believe it, either.
So I’m currently sorting out a multi-pronged plan of attack to celebrate THE END.
Here’s my strategy so far:
1a)On or about 5/25, order 1 skein of Wollmeise sockenwolle or merino superwash from a Ravelry seller (should arrive around 6/1). I’ve never held Wollmeise before. Never seen it in person, never touched it. But since it’s clearly made of unicorn farts and fairy tears, I can hardly fail to be impressed.
1b)On the same day, indulge in some Etsy treats from one or more of these sellers. Oh, yes.
2)On Wednesday 6/1, scoot to Knitorious straight after work. Twirl gleefully in a circle (Julie-Andrews-on-a-mountaintop-style) and fill my arms with wooly goodness. Purchase wooly goodness. Cry a bit. Happy tears. Prepare to be mocked by Sandy.
3)On Thursday 6/2 after work, visit The Loopy Ewe in person (I can’t believe I’ve lived in St. Louis for three years and haven’t been there yet); they’re open till 8pm that night. You can watch my frantic scurrying on webcam, too. I’ll probably Tweet the event. And take pictures for posterity.
4)On Saturday 6/4 and Sunday 6/5, spend the ENTIRE WEEKEND holed up in my house with nothing but a dog and full DVR for company, and knit as though my life depended on it. I anticipate putting in 12- or 15-hour days. Make Jeff watch the whole yarn orgy on webcam from DC. You know I’m not kidding.
Am I forgetting anything? What else can I do to make the celebration even more special?
