False Promises

I have been trying to tell myself. DO NOT buy yarn you don't have a pattern for (sock yarn is excluded from this statement). Even if it is on sale.... Don't buy yarn you don't have a pattern for.

So today I drove a half an hour to a workshop. The workshop was cancelled so instead of calling the trip a total loss and waste of gas, on my way back home I stopped in at a Knit or Knot and .... bought yarn that was on sale and I don't have a pattern for it.

So I can include "Don't buy yarn you don't have a pattern for" in the category with "don't start any new projects until you finish what you have on the needles first", then crumple them up together and toss them out the window!

What did I buy you ask? I bought 12 balls of Debbie Bliss Cotton Angora in a dark green colour. Now I just need to finish a few projects, start and finish a few gifts, and then I can hunt for a pattern. Any suggestions leave a comment.

P.S. The other baby sweater from the last post in on hold. I am waiting for another ball of the Zara in the cream colour that I ordered online. So wish me speedy delivery so I can finish it off. Sooo close but yet so far.
