So it was a big yarn buying month for me! I started a lot of projects too but don’t have many FOs to show for it. I tend to have quite a few WIPs and I tend to work on things in spurts and then moving on to do a bit of something else. I like working this way it means I never get bored of a particular project, and I always have something on the go for a particular situation – lunchtime work, doctors waiting rooms, car, tv, in-laws. The only thing I don’t have on the needles at the moment is a simple stocking stitch project for reading a book at the same time.

I really have to calm down with the yarn buying though!



  1. Lovely collection of yarns. Calm down on the yarn buying..shrieks in horror….NOOOO

  2. … Oooh. Can I nap in your stash?

  3. Eeeee – thanks for the ‘Make my day’ award!! 🙂 It certainly made mine.

    I really like the look of the SeaWool — how does it feel???
