Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

Stash acquisition

So, a few days ago KnitSoc had a yarn crawl (side note: when my housemate first saw it on fb, he thought it said pub crawl and was rather confused!). Unfortunately, because of the weather, only a few people turned up, which meant we didn’t crowd the stores, so I guess it was a good thing. We went around 5 craft shops (4 had yarn), and in the end I only bought stuff from the third. I was very good!

Firstly, I got 100g of something (chunky I think) in purple. This will become a Christmas present (hand warmers) for my housemate. He deserves more ( he would totally get socks from me,but he doesn’t want them. I don’t understand).


Then I got sock yarn (for me). This is totally justified, since I recently darned a weak spot in a pair of socks (I saw an end on one of the plies, so I reinforced 3 rows…) 🙂

IMGP0412When I’m actually going to get around to knitting socks again, I don’t know. Probably after Christmas, but then I have several cardigans I want to start…*sigh*
