So I decided to not join the STR -- though I wanted too very badly, I didn't want to spend that much money for the stuff to sit.
Instead I decided to order the "Knitpicks" sock kit. Six pairs of cute anklets (more along the lines of what I wear) patterns and yarn for $25.00. If it sits and doesn't get knit (I hope not) I won't feel as guilty. Hopefully they will be quickie patterns and with some success I'll be inspired to continue.
While I was off I decided to do some deep cleaning -- you know January stuff. Move furniture type cleaning. So I dove into my stash to clean/organize that too.
Found not 1, not 2, not 3 but 5 skeins of STR in my stash.
Made me ever so glad again that I didn't join since I have almost a years worth sitting in a closet.
