I find it so hard to resist buying yarn. I am so tempted when I see the gorgeous colours in yarn shop. I am almost a collector now of beautiful yarn that I have no idea what to make with. Have you ever bought yarn just for the yarn without having a project in mind? Sometimes I just buy one of two skeins without knowing what it will be good for. I just know it’s good. That strategy has its advantages and disadvantages. On one hand, I always have a supply of beautiful yarn so when I get inspired for a project, all I have to do is choose which yarn to use. On the other hand though, I may end up not having enough for a project because I only bought one skein. If you don’t buy enough of the same dye lot, then you might have differences in colour.
So now I have all that yarn and I am trying to figure our what to knit with it. Especially considering that summer is coming, it’s hard to get motivated to knit something warm. I should just go back to the yarn shop and look for something more summer-y 😀
My favourite yarn shop is Shan’s Needlework. Shan is such a special lady. Always smiling and friendly. I like going there just to look and to have a chat with her. Here’s her website:
