So, I've decided that for Lent, I will be giving up buying yarn (for me, that is; I'm doing a few swaps, so I'll still be allowed to buy yarn for others. Also, I signed up for the Taste of Shivaya club, so I'll still be getting those . . . ). Sure, forty days isn't really that long, but lately it seems I can't go a week without ordering something. Case in point:
These are my latest acquisitions, all gorgeous but completely unnecessary. They also don't fit in my yarn storage (which has grown to two 3-drawer plastic carts. Sigh.
I bought the Shetland Spindrift specifically to make the Selbu Modern hat. I have no plans to make this any time soon, but Never Not Knitting made the yarn sound so irresistible. Plus there was a discount! And free shipping!
My favorite of these recent purchases is definitely the Mirasol Nuna. It's 40% merino, 40% silk and 20% bamboo and the color is gorgeous. I don't know yet what it will become, other than something for ME.
But starting Wednesday, no yarn buying until April! Can I hold out and not sign up for the Fearless Fibers Whisper of Spring lace club before then? (DO WANT!) We'll see!
And oh yeah, I finished a sock!
Not a great job with that one gusset join, but otherwise, lovely, I think. Love the picot edge. Now to overcome second sock syndrome . . .
