I have been spending money on yarny goodness. I just couldn’t help myself. Plus when Dreamcatcher and a lady at my knitting club both recommended the book depository I ended up making some more yarn-related purchases. Below is my list of shame.
Lovely lace weight Posh Yarn from the latest yarn club instalment. It is so soft and has a beautiful sheen. I’m going to be so sad when the yarn club stops. But I’ll just have to spend the money on some of Posh Yarn’s gorgeous ‘one-offs’ instead.
Next up some Rowanspun Aran in Gables. Now, to be honest at the prices the Cucumber patch use I think I’d feel more guilty if I hadn’t bought this wool ;-) I’m going to make Juno from Rowan 40. I wasn’t going to make this pattern until I saw this version on Knitting Betty and fell in love with it.
I also bought Fitted Knits by Stefanie Japel, and I’m so glad I did. It is a lovely book and I will definitely make some of the patterns. There is some really useful advice on how to fit your knits properly and the patterns all seem to be very well laid out, with detailed schematics.
