Thud

That noise y'all heard Saturday morning? That was me, falling off my "try not to buy yarn until June" resolution. Whoops. But honestly, faced with a 50% off sale, wouldn't you have done the same?


Most shocking, is that I bought all this yarn WITH NO PATTERN IN MIND. I have never bought yarn (other than sock yarn, because really, they're going to be some kind of socks) without knowing exactly what pattern I wanted to use it for. I do know that the grey (Debbie Bliss Merino Aran) will be for a sweater for hubbo (he picked it out), and all the rest is for mememe! The pink is Rowan Wool Cotton, the purple is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky and the blue/green is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran. I'm thinking that the purple will be a simple cardigan - nice and comfy for the classroom.

And yes, I did have to buy two more containers - I didn't plan for any expansion of the stash. Whoops.

I won't add this officially to the stash until after the contest, just to be fair. Don't forget - you can guess until next Sunday!

  6. Hahaha! Good thing your contest wasn't about how soon you'd fall off the wagon. :)

    I think it's soon enough that you can just call a do over on your non-stashing resolution.

  7. Well it looks to me that you had to buy all that yarn...all that softness and the great colors surely begged you to take them home! Can't wait to see your projects!

  8. NO ONE can pass up a 50% off sale. And those are great purchases - they can be anything! Three cheers for good stash additions . . . for you!
