While communing with my stash one day, I noticed that there was a black cotton tape yarn with a greenish cast near a piece of green rayon with a black cast. A marriage made in heaven (or my stash closet).
Gina suggested an exercise from Dan Ho's book, Rescue from Domestic Perfection: The Not-So Secrets of Balancing Life and Style. For ten days, do not put the clothes that you wear away. Wash them and put them aside in a box so you can see how little of your wardrobe you actually wear. This is supposed to make you chuck out clothes that you don't wear. I can't bear to cull my collection any further. So I made sure to rotate more clothes than usual.
I went to San Francisco for the long weekend and did not buy any new or used clothes. I did do some major shopping at Artfibers, Thai Silks and Black Oak Books. Slideshow and store links here. The black tape yarn above is actually a second from Artfibers (Papyrus, a discontinued yarn). The yarn did not take to the dye evenly. I prefer the look anyway.
