Time to Confess

Thursday my comrades in arms persuaded me to go with them to a yarn sale. Actually they didn’t have to do much persuading, who can say no to spend a Saturday morning in such company and buy good quality yarn at reduced prices as well? Two of them have already confessed to being addicted to yarn and I guess it’s my time now:

Hello, my name is Lone and I’m a yarn’aholic.

I thought I would be able to resist the lure of the yarn, especially as I really don’t have either the time, space or money for more of it, but presented with a  wall full of Evilla Yarn the situation quickly became critical. Having so much to choose from almost made me hyperventilate and only with the support of my friends I managed to calm down. The only problem is that getting support from other yarn’aholics doesn’t mean discouraging you from buying.

Now excuse me, I had better go and knit some of all my yarn.

Knitting Has Occurred

Wow, it has been a while, hasn’t it? Especially as the blog has seen a lot more traffic after I got my profile on Ravelry.

So, let me show what’s on the needles right now.

It’s a yoked cardigan from a Danish magazine called Hendes Verden, in English Her World. It’s one of the few woman magazines here that has maintained a high number of craft projects even during the periods when crafting was least fashionable. I usually don’t buy it so I hadn’t seen this pattern before I went to one of Bette Design’s knit evenings. Lisbeth the owner was wearing it and the temptation was more than I could handle. I just had to get the yarn right away and cast on immediately. Of course it didn’t help I was in the company of certain persons (you know who you are) who did nothing to stop me and maybe even actively encouraged me to go for it.

On the other hand even though my knitting basket is overspilling with other projects I’ve only been working on this one for the last ten days and I’ve already finished both sleeves.

Just like I’ve been wearing Salina a lot I know this cardigan is going to see a lot of wear once it’s finished and that’s just the motivation I need to keep interested.
