So after I ran out of the yarn that I am making this granny shawl thing out of (not because I need to buy more, but because I visited my parents on the weekend 3 hours drive away and didn’t take everything) and the stars aligning I was able to head off and raid her yarn and whole craft stash.
There is a stack of stuff that I did NOT take, but now that I know where it is when I get back, I am bloody stoked that I basically have a yarn shop there which will save some money. And it’s all pure wool (so will be good for my jumpers and things that I want to try) and not the cheap stuff that I have been collecting from eBay!
Husband should be happy, I’ve saved him hundreds of dollars… however he’s a bit perplexed about the size of the bag that I bought home!!
Now for the fun of updating my stash on Ravelry BUT THE SITE IS DOWN AT THE MOMENT so I will have to wait until tomorrow night instead of tonight like I wanted, which means that I will just have to continue to work on the blanket instead of spending the night uploading while Husband watches the Block which drives me MENTAL.
All of this is a bit different to what I am used to though, it’s 5 ply so I have jumped on eBay (I KNOW, STOP!) and got some new needles on their way. Eventually I will be trusted to walk into Spotlight and not buy the whole store, but now is not that time. For now I am going to sit on the floor and play with my new yarn. And take photos. And catalogue it ready for when Ravelry is back up tomorrow. (!!!)
