Because I plan on making this afghan:
Just because it has twenty-something colors and will be the first time I ever attempt any sort of colorwork doesn't mean I'm insane. It just means I'm fearless. *grin* The girls at Knitting Daily will be so proud.
Here's a photo of the pile'o'yarn purchased yesterday specifically for this project.
Note: I don't plan on starting this project anytime in the near future. I have Christmas presents to make first. But my LYS had Patons Canadiana on sale and I figured this was as good a time as any to stock up on the yarn!
*snerk* Who am I kidding? As if I need an excuse to buy yarn.
