New Yarn...

I have enough yarn - I know this because during a sleepless night last week (a late night coffee three months after almost completely giving up coffee - mistake!) I decided to go through my stash and match it to patterns. I found yarn I don't remember ever acquiring. I found yarn that deserves to be made into something rather than languishing unloved in a box. I found yarn that had been bought for specific patterns and yarn that was bought just because I liked it. I have enough yarn.

And yet...
I work in a fabulous yarn shop and they keep getting gorgeous new yarns. I try to resist but I am weak - resistance is futile.
I seek out yarn shops when we go anywhere - when visiting a yarn shop it would be rude not to buy anything.

And so...
This week I have added to my stash with not one, not two, not three, not four, but five new skeins/balls. However, I'm sure I can justify all of them...

From Marmalade Yarns I got Christmas sock yarn - because it's almost Christmas and I need socks.



I also got 3 skeins of Socks Yeah! because the colours are gorgeous and they would make some beautiful stripy fingerless mitts and I have a stripy fingerless mitt pattern just begging to be used. They would also make a beautiful fairisle hat and I have a fairisle hat pattern that is also begging to be used. Decisions will have to be made.



From Oxford Yarn Store (discovered during a lovely weekend jaunt to Oxford) I bought this beautiful green Aran because I don't have much Aran and I don't have much green and I want to make another pair of cabled fingerless mitts and I think they'd look nice in green.


I made these grey mitts with leftover yarn from the crocheted poncho - the jury's still out on that one but I do like the mitts.


See - easily justified. Now I just need to find the time to finish current wips before starting these...

  1. Poncho would be a good idea to crochet but how much will it take to make it? I am scared even to suppose! ))
