I may be crazy

What's wrong with me? So, I admit, I partially joined Project Spectrum because the first month's designated colour is pink (and/or red). I like pink. I have a lot of pink yarn. The above is a picture of the pink elements of my stash, not counting the 10 balls of vintage hot pink mohair that I bought on ebay a couple of years ago. So, you'd think I'd be able to do a little stash busting and Project Spectrum-ing at the same time, right?

But, I still felt the need to buy the three skeins of Lotus Pink Lamb's Pride worsted and a skein of sock yarn. Granted they're being put to good use. I cast on for Magknits Swing Thing with the LP (though, I can't find my U.S. 8 circ, so I'm foolishly trying to ram all the stitches onto straights) and I'm trying to do a pair of socks every month for PS, so I needed some sock yarn, since socks are still new to me and I don't have much sock yarn stashed. But still. Why so much yarn? Why? And what am I going to do with all that vintage mohair?

First of all I LOVE Ruby's legwarmers, and second - I was just looking at Swing Thing tonight!! I can't wait to hear how it is because I think both our little girls would look adorable in one. Is the LP the same type of wool? Would the Fleece Artist be a good weight too?

I love your blog and your pink yarn too. So glad I got to meet you and Ruby. I'm spending way too much money on yarn these days, but there are so many wonderful choices, I'll soon have a stash just like my fabrics.
