Oh Baby You, You Got What I Nee-ee-eed!

I'm only asking because I've seen what asking knitters for stuff can accomplish... Crazy feats of fundraising, generous donations for the needy, artistic participation on a Grand scale...

So what sad story have I got to make you want to give me stuff? None at all, I'm sorry to say. I have nothing but an itch that wants scratching.

Do you have any wool sock yarn leftovers that you'd like to get out of your house? Are you stashbusting and wondering what you'll ever do with all these little golf balls of sock yarn? I want them. I have this sudden uncontrollable urge to make more more more squares for my quilt, and yet the sock yarn I have is all waiting to be socks. I don't want to borrow from the skeins before the socks are knit because I may get down to the end and find that I can't complete the toe. You've been there, right?

I just spent my weekend travelling and knitting three squares and my hands are itching to do more. If you're reading this and thinking, "No way, Lame-O!" that's fair enough, because I'm sorta thinking it too.

But if you're thinking something else, let me know.

In the meantime, I'm working on socks furiously so that I can have leftovers sooner. How backward is that?

O Canada content to come...

I've also been knitting up squares out of left over sock yarn. I'm using Larissa's square pattern, but going out to fewer stitches, making a 5.5 inch square instead of the 7.5 one. I think it has more to do with my short dpns than my stamina. Your "quilt" looks awesome so far!

You would be doing such a mitzvah by taking all of those little balls off our hands! Email me your address and you will be in business and I will be thrilled!
