It’s official, I’m a knit-iot. But here’s a giveaway!

Debbie Bliss Magazine Fall/Winter 2013

This story falls under the category of “You know you have too much stash when…”

The other day, I needed some size 5 double-pointed needles for the Susie Rogers’ Reading Mitts, so I headed over to Skein, my LYS in Pasadena. While I was there, I also picked up a copy of the latest Debbie Bliss Knitting Magazine (Fall/Winter 2013), after carefully checking my Ravelry library to see if I already had it (there are some cute Christmas patterns in this issue, including one for a Santa-style coat for dogs. Awww…). Anyway, after I got home, I discovered that I already had this issue. It had been sitting on my bedside-table, staring me in the face for two months, and I had just never gotten around to recording it on Ravelry. D’oh!

If you have so many knitting magazines you can’t keep track of them all, it’s time to take stock of your life. Or, better yet, host a giveaway contest.

Congratulations! My “knittiocy” (like “idiocy” except for knitters… do you think it will catch on?) is your gain! The first person to comment on this post and tell me something “knittiotic” that he/she has done will win the magazine. Good luck!

UPDATE: The prize has been claimed by reader chickinboots! Feel free to leave comments though — I’d love to hear from you.

  1. I’d say your “knittiocy” was rather mild. Like you, I don’t have everything logged on Ravelry. When I went to buy yarn last week to make a baby blanket for a friend who’s expecting, I didn’t think twice about what yarn I bought. Well, it turns out I bought the exact same yarn I already had in my stash, in nearly the same quantities of each color. Oops! So it turns out I’ll have more than enough to make a sweater, hat and booties to match the blanket… lol


    1. I’ve done that before too! And sometimes I even have a little bit of deja-vu as I’m buying the yarn for the second time, but I just ignore it. If you would like the Debbie Bliss magazine, send me your address privately at thelyfsoshort{at} Congratulations! And thank you for reading my blog!


      1. Oh, the deja-vu was definitely there! But I can never remember if I actually bought the yarn or just thought about it. lol Need to make it a priority to enter everything into Ravelry this winter. Hope the server can handle it. lol
