I know, I know. If March is supposed to be “No Yarn” month around here, then what am I doing with new yarn? I didn’t cheat, I swear it. Since I knew yarn was going to be off limits in March, I got it out of my system last month by ordering things that were on sale or needed for projects in the near future. I was trying to get it out of my system so I couldn’t possibly need any fiber related items this month. No way I could be tempted. So far it’s been 4 days with no fiber purchases, and I feel fine. Just fine. Keep telling myself that….
The pink & purple yarns pictured above are KnitPicks’ Sierra yarns which were on clearance for $2.99 for 110 yds (usually $4.99). They are for the charity knitting I do for Warm Woolies. I hope they’re not discontinuing this yarn, but it looks like they might be as they don’t have much of a selection left, even in the regular-priced colors. The tan yarn is for a felted bag that I’m making for R. Darling’s aunt. I bought the other colors (green & blue) previously but she didn’t like the original tan color I’d chosen so I ordered another color. Hopefully she’ll like this one. The books (below) were added on to get the total up to $45 or more so I could get free shipping. I know, lame reason to spend more money, but I fall for that free shipping deal every time! I have loved the Itty Bitty Hats book for a while and the Bath Buddies just looked really cute, so I caved. It was on sale anyway….
Can you believe I haven’t knit a stitch for 2 days? 2 days!! Things have been a little crazy here. But I’ve actually got knitting homework, so I’d better get to it. I have to finish my charted motif on my 2 color hat for knitting class. If only homework had been this much fun in college, maybe I wouldn’t have spent so much time drinking beer…..
