I had sworn to myself that I would not allow this month's credit card balance to go over a certain amount (I do pay it off monthly). Then I saw that Araucania Nature Wool and Araucania Magallanes are on closeout at Webs. When you check the prices, do note the yardage. Most of you will be able to get a sweater out of 8 or fewer balls. I looked at my credit card balance; I was already $20 over my personally set 'limit'.
Yeah, and I can't stay on a food diet either... I bought enough Nature Wool (grey and green) for two sweaters (designing them now!) and enough Magallanes (red/pink and turq/yellow) for two pairs of mittens which I don't need.
This, however, I bought for a reason:
I have actually been asked to knit a couple of pair of fingerless gloves. These are both purple, and both lovely, though the Rowan Designer DK outsaturates the gorgeous part-alpaca Khroma DK. I had no suitable purple in my stash. In fact my stash makes it painfully obvious that green and brown are my favorite colors.
The best reason to cut down on yarn is my swiftly shrinking storage space, so what I need to do is finish up some current projects. I'm making good headway on the Clapotis and hope to be able to show you something tomorrow. I've also spent a lot of time today finishing up Grasslimb: polishing up layout, proofreading, getting it ready for the printer.
Just one highlight of a manual that came with one of Rob's multi-testers. No more than a novel style, indeed. Ting stmiccture.
