I’m not going to lie, since my partner’s eight-month stint of being without a job, life has been a bit of a struggle and even six weeks after we’ve started bringing in two wages again it’s been hard to get on top of those bills that had racked up the months before. HOWEVER! My yarn addiction has been growing steadily over the last ten months to deserve ‘hardcore junkie’ status, and since I’m in charge of family finances – well, needless to say that I can somehow always find some money for more yarn purchases.
Last night my sister showed me photos of her latest yarn purchase, which included several bags of pretty varigated acrylic 8 ply from Ice Yarns. I have had a few bags of this lovely yarn in the online checkout for about a week or so now while I waited for the money to be able to buy it, and this morning I couldn’t handle the jealousy anymore and bought it all! Hopefully it will get here within a week; I am VERY excited.
For today post pics, I’ve got some CAL progress images for you. Unfortunately the latest flower border looks a bit like big dark spots, but I think looks kind of funky 🙂 This blanket is also starting to be quite beneficial now that the weather has turned and it’s snowing – it keeps my lap nice and warm while I work. I can’t wait to finish this in the next two weeks as then I will be able to justify starting another with that lovely Ice Yarn on the way!
Also, my new set of Clover hooks arrive this week! Yay! They are AMAZING!
