I just read an excellent perspective on stash acquisition and creativity at Tien's blog. I do enjoy my stash but it is good to keep in mind that I don't *need* it. I think know I built my stash primarily though the joy of acquisition and I'm sure that will continue. I do enjoy shopping, especially for fiber-related beautiful stuff. I have noticed I have been just a little more selective during the past year. Oops, that was because I didn't have place to put it for most of last year. Well, it was good training.
The blog redecorating occupied a few hours today and I'm glad to have a personalized banner again. The old one disappeared a while ago and I never made time to create another one. I also knit 14 more rows on Icarus this afternoon. (See that, Stacey?) I'm still deep in Chart 1 and enjoying that I'm "getting" the pattern. (I'm just whispering that last phrase --- I need to put in another lifeline.....soon.)
I found another reminder in my photo library that Spring will come.
I'm approaching my 400th post. I think a contest/giveaway may be a good idea. Stay tuned.
