Extra Bulk

I finished a four year bachelor’s degree in two years. My hobby is painting meticulously detailed “collages” full of tiny objects and perfect shadowing. I’m currently watching seasons 1 & 2 of Modern Family on DVD for the firth time–in a row. It’s safe to say I’m a pretty focused person with a long attention span. Usually. When it comes to knitting, I seem to lose interest in a project in a blink of an eye. While I’ve finished plenty of larger projects in the past, I’ve also neglected plenty of half-begun pieces too. My problem is a lack of patience: with a sock yarn, you can knit and knit and knit and see little or no progress, and since thinner yarns have always been easily available locally, sock and DK weights were always my primary medium. Although I finally managed to finish a pair of fair-isle mitts that have been in the works since September, but a pullover, a scarf, and a pair of socks in progress for well over a year all remain unfinished. I want a project I can make some progress with–and that means it’s time for some bulky yarn. As soon as Purl Soho restocks Bag Smith’s Big Stitch Alpaca, I’ll be making this rug. In the mean time, here are a few more extra bulky skeins to covet:
