MUST.. NOT..BUY.. MORE..YARN


With that in mind I decided to dye up some for Amber's hoodie. I really hope I've done enough. I have had this South American merino from 100purewool lying around for a few months now, and it beckoned yesterday. It is so beautiful and soft. I'm really happy with the soft tones of the colours, although it wasn't exactly what I was aiming for. So.. that's another project to add to the ever-growing list. Another pair of arms would come in mighty handy.
In other news, I'm still mopey, and I wish DH would leave the house so I can sulk in peace.

Buying yarn is fun though and admit it, it does lift the spirits when feeling a little down - lovely, lovely yummy yarn. If you can't get the house to yourself - sounds like you need to come visit ;)
