Anouk on the needles
My cousin's baby needs this dress. The pattern is quick and easy. I love the seed stitch sides. Adorable!
I'm going to work on it through tomorrow, then start the shrug.
I promised the hubs no more buying knitting goods. No patterns, no yarn, no needles. Ugh.
I should use what I have and be happy for it- trust me, no one on Earth is more blessed than I am. I know this. But when it comes to anything knit-related I feel like I need more...stuff. I feel if I was ever to lose everything in a fire I'd be most sad about losing my stash. That's sad. I'd miss my photos too, but those can be replaced.
I buy yarn from different places I go- Salem gave me Silky Wool, that handspun, hand dyed yarn from Florida, Boston gave me the yarn from hell, New York....oh New York....you gave me blisters and yarn that I'll never, ever remember it's name- but it's such stunning yarn!!!
Anyhow, I guess I'm officially on a (not even) yarn diet, but a knitter's (nightmare) diet.
Maybe I should go through the stash and reorganize, that way the hubs might see how little I really have.
No, that won't work. He'll just point out what I do have. And how much I have. And what a mess my closet usually is.
No, that will never work.
Oh well. A yarn diet won't kill me.
PS. Day 2 of no swift count up. Yesterday we did go over the parts he purchased for it and what their primary function is. Oh ya gotta love being married to an engineer. ;)
