Back to the much, much more mundane and inconsequential...
I have been on a small scale yarn diet. In part it is because I have a really nice stash, but also because I have no more room to store it without going outside my study. Going outside of the study to store stash is not to be tolerated. Period. End of story. I can only buy yarn as I knit it away. (Note to self: Knit faster)
This doesn't mean there hasn't been some purchasing, just very little yarn. This has been a season of very good books. Alice Starmore's re-issued Aran Knitting, Kaffe Fassett's Pattern Library (new to me!) Rae Comptons Traditional Knitting, another goodie from a long time ago, have all been added to my library.
But other than as needed for a project there has been very very little yarn buying. More or less. Reeeeally.
Till this last week. Last week, I had to make sure to get my deeply desired Tove while I had the chance and before someone else gets to it before I do!
As you can see, I now have a good supply of this marvelous yarn in natural and natural looking heathers. Shawls, sweaters, all good things are wonderful in Tove.
There have been a few other goodies creeping in too .
Mini Moochi from Crystal Palace Yarns.
Hardly any yarn buying at all...
