….no more patterns.
…..no more wool.
….no more starting new projects until I have worked on some of the back log of unfinished projects.
I just wish that sometimes I would listen to myself.
There is shawl that people are raving about.
It’s the Colour Affection Shawl by Veera Välimäki and I will admit to falling in love with it instantly.
Completely, head over heels in love with it.
I resisted. Truly I did. I told myself I did not need another pattern. I told myself I did not have the yarn. I told myself I wasn’t spending money – it was the year to save.
I didn’t listen to myself.
I bought the pattern.
I have the yarn – although I may need to dye some of it and in my defence it will reduce some of the sock weight wool I have.
Now I have a problem. The idea of spinning my own wool (which would reduce the fleece stash by just a little bit) is very appealing……………….incredibly……………………….awesomely appealing.
My problem is do I have the time for all that spinning? Will my spinning skills allow me to create a lovely soft, fine and even yarn? And once the yarn is spun will I be able to decide on what colours to make it in?
As I said I have a problem.
Off to rummage in my stash of fleece and see what’s ready to spin. Ohh the possibilites.
I might just have to pull out the sock yarn too and see what’s there.
I think I’m incredibly happy that I don’t listen to myself.
