Yopping 38 - Done with Cold Sheeping
I did finish another pair of socks:
I did almost finish the third quadrant (although I was cocky and didn't use a life line and had to redo rows 61-63 three times).
Lifeline now securely in place.
I did start my second Elizabeth Zimmerman sweater using up my Cascade 220.
Then I bought this pattern Iona, from Lucy Hague.
And then I went to the Fibres West convention to buy wool for the above said blanket.
I have always fretted about choosing colours, but Kinfolk Yarn was there, and I was determined to pick and choose and finally ended up with this:
I am so happy - and my wallet is now so light - and I am officially not cold sheeping anymore. Cold Sheep is a term used on Ravelry. By committing to going Cold Sheep (instead of cold turkey), you’re committing to not buying more yarn until you hit a certain time goal or have knit down your stash of previously purchased yarns. I have been cold sheeping for over a year (except for that wool I bought in London, and that hemp I bought last October) and I did promise myself that if I was to buy yarn once my cold sheeping was done I had to have a project in mind. And I do. So there is that.
I also bought some more hemp (300 gms) for a couple of more zodiac pot-holders.
And of course I HAD to buy more stitch markers, because, well, Houston - we have a problem.
Lastly I have some white Cascade 220 that I am going to dye pink because I just have to make myself a pussy hat. I have re-wound it into a skein and now I am off to buy some pink kool-aid.
I just have to - cause I just have to have one of 'those' hats.
