my growing addiction, er yarn stash

my super secret project is finished! i don't think i've ever made something this quickly before. i took pictures and am bursting with pride, but of course i cannot reveal b/c then it wouldn't be super secret anymore. :-(

this weekend, my roommate was gone and i had the apartment all to myself. which means, that apart from a few frisbee games and cleaning binges, i knit all weekend long. which is probably why i finished my super secret project in record time. i also have been working on the knit katrina squares. i've finished four and am working on a fifth. it's nice to be able to try out new stitch patterns on a relatively small space. i've been using my reader's digest sourcebook of knit and crochet stitches. i'm using up the acrylic that has been in my stash since i learned to knit. it feels good to be able to put the stuff to use. i also started my last sleeve of analise and am on the increase sections. it'll be fun to finally start the challenge of seaming it together.

today, i got my order from handpaintedyarn.com in the mail! very pretty colors and softer than manos. i can't wait to see how it knits up. i ordered four skeins of fondo marino bp and four skeins of the rocha hk. i'm not sure what the difference is supposed to be in the yarn itself, as they both look and feel the same in the skein. i guess i'll find out soon. now my problem (besides not having enough time to start yet another new project) is that i don't have the slightest idea what to do with it. any suggestions?
