This End Of

…the bargain has been fulfilled! I may have not been successful with my yarn diet but I have not cast on a new project since. And that my friends, is quite an achievement with me. And…

I finished my Purple Ripple. Yay!

Pattern: My own
Yarn: Sirdar Country Style – Heather
Needles: 3.75mm and 4 mm
Size: 18 – 24 months

A bit late for intended recipient, who now has a sibling. Hoping it will fit the younger sister.

It did not last…

Yarn diet! Tcha! No sooner than I said that I would not buy anymore yarn… I went and bought some more…

Recently, I bought this Jaeger yarn (20 skeins!)

and then I bought some more of the lovely Araucania yarn.

But wait for it… I did not stop there! I also bought a skein of Noro yarn.

I can’t wait to cast on with them.

To buy or not to buy?

That was the question recenlty, when I was surfing the net and found some heavily discounted yarn. How long do you think I lasted?

That’s right a minute and I splashed out on some Debbie Bliss Stella (my first DB yarn ever).
I bought two packs of the yarn enough for some cardies for my girls and something for me. I did not stop there... I also bought a skein of Araucania Ranco Multy, just in case I fancy knitting some socks...
But, I have promised myself that I can only cast on with it, once I finish two of the pending projects. I am a sucker for yarn… I have already spotted something else though.

So you see, I have been busy in the knitting department just not knitting! Must dash now, write soon!
