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.
