So, as you may know if you read my blog, I am about to start a new job. You will also know that I have just had 2 weeks off, which included a trip to Rome. Because of the above I have a very small of money left over until I next get paid, and I don’t know when that is going to be, or how much. Therefore, I have imposed a spending ban. This spending ban is limited to my main form of expenditure, which is, of course, yarn.
You will be impressed to know that since I have been back in the UK I have refrained from purchasing yarn. I even spent an afternoon in Wibbling Wools and managed not to buy any.
Next Thursday I will have been a whole week with out buying any new yarn, and I can’t remember when that last happened. It’s not like I really need any more yarn, but I just see it and I NEED it.
I thought, to “celebrate” this saving technique I would do some stash busting projects, and try and finish some started projects, and most importantly get my Alice in Wonderland window display finished. I have a couple of cute, quick patterns I am working which I will post here soon. For now I am just going to show you my current WIPs.
You have already seen the start of my flower blanket, which is using up bits a pieces as I go, it is either going to be a riot of colour or a complete eye sore!
There is my Pom Pom scarf which should be quick to finish if I just get on with it:
There is also this baby jumper I made for my neighbour’s little boy who is now too big for it. It only need stitching up and the collar knitted and then it’s done… fortunately I have a pregnant friend expecting a boy 🙂
And the last WIP I want to try and finish this week is this Brigita scarf I have designed, I have done one pattern repeat, just need to keep going with it now. It’s only for a child so it shouldn’t take too long:
There are plenty more stored away in bags in the spare bedroom, but a little at a time and all that!! I shall keep you posted no doubt.
And I am very sorry Lyndsey, but your best (?!) customer is about to become your worst, but I’ll still be taking up my weekly residence on the sofa in your shop!!!
