I Didn’t Even Have to Cheat!

As you know, I vowed that I would not buy a single scrap of yarn till January next year, so when a package came from Eat, Sleep, Knit yesterday, The Man raised his eyebrows. But, all is well, my dearies. Last year, when I was heavily engaged in the yarnathon, I reached (and passed) the 20 mile mark when I indulged in some Malabrigo Lace during their Black Friday sale. This new yarn is the 20 Mile Surprise Package. Check it out:

One skein Madelinetosh Tosh Sock in Glasshouse, a pattern for Elves and Elms Socks by Jean Knapp and a DPN WIP tube.

I know, you wanna see that yarn again, don’t you?

Now, as lovely as the sock pattern is, I am thinking baby sweater…

New yarn. And I didn’t even have to cheat. Sigh. What a lovely day.

Oh, Yeah! This is a Knitting Blog!

I almost forgot. But, look! Yarn!

Misti Alpaca Tonos Worsted in Pink Saphire

Dream in Color Groovy in Torchwood

This is my latest splurge, and the last of the year. I only have real plans for the Misti Alpaca – a baby bonnet for my cousins new baby. As for the rest, well…. I must confess to you all, that this year I became somewhat obsessed with the Eat, Sleep, Knit Yarnathon. I found myself very close the the 20 mile mark after I indulged in the Black Friday sale, and so I placed this order that you see here just to push me over that line. Call me crazy, but you know that I will use these… eventually. I know, I know… I haven’t exactly been knitting, um, at all, since I got pregnant, but I have faith that my mojo will return. Plus – now I have free yarn coming! Hehehe.
