Hi, My name is Colette and I am a fiberholic

There is so much yarn all over my apartment - I am seriously considering renting storage space. The only thing holding me back is that once I had all that room - I would go out and buy more yarn.

I finally found a pattern for the Oxford yarn I got at elann -

My yarn is a rust tweed sport wt that I think will be perfect for this sweater. I found the pattern at One Fine Yarn - I really like shopping there - they are always helpful and respond to your emails very quickly. I was asking about Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton Book Number Two because I have gotten the urge to do Klaralund and wanted the pattern. They don't have it in stock right now, but I found the sweater so - I am happy.

Decided to crochet the baby blanket for David's ex - I crochet much faster than I knit and I need it done this weekend.

Work is progressing on the Lopi poncho - hope to have pix soon.

A quick question - what is the best way to respond to people who leave comments? I can't email them back when I get the email comment- do most people comment back or mention their respone in their blog? I want to thank everyone who left me comments - I get so excited when someone leaves one - You like me you really like me.

Do you have any empty suitcases taking up closet space? It's amazing how much yarn can be smooshed into them! ;-D

Ahh a woman after my own heart, and here I was thinking that I was the only one whose yarn is literally taking over their house. Too bad we don't live near each other, we could rent a yarn-holding space together :)

How come you can't email the people who leave you comments?
When people comment on my blog, I answer them in the comment box, most of the time. I figure if they read my blog they will check back to see.
Does that work for you?

I usually answer in the comment box. When someone leaves me a comment, I get an email notifying my, but the return email address is not the person leaving the comment, so I don't know how to resond back to them - or and I misunderstanding the way it works?

Gee, that's weird. I don't use Blogger's comments so I don't understand why they don't provide you with that info.
Anyway, it's fine if you answer in your comment box.
