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

O…kay, so I may have gone slightly overboard… But it’s Christmas, so who can resist really? (Actually, now I’m thinking about it, it was 3 balls of yarn and two cross stitch Christmas tree ornaments, oh and a new set of sock needles…)

So, three more balls of sock yarn (one of which has already been started…naturally!)

and some more cross stitch ornaments!  (Even though I haven’t done the Mill Hill kit I got ages ago…)

That’s it! No more craft purchases expect for already planned projects! That means (off the top of my head, I reserve the right to have forgotten things!) yarn for a masc buttonbox (one of the jumpers I talked about making) and the sock yarn for my mum’s Christmas socks. Oh, and anything else I need for other Christmas presents. I think that’s it. Let’s see how well this goes! (And a set of scales, as I would really like to start measuring how much yarn I use in a year!) Right, I should get back to crafting, I have 20+ things to make (it was 19, then I remembered the wolf cross stitch, so we’re up to 20 plus assorted extras)

  1. Oh I’ve been eyeing a scale! At this point I just use my kitchen scale, but it would be nice to have a dedicated yarn scale!

  2. I seem to recall in the dim and distant past intending to calculate how much yarn I use in a year. Maybe I should join you in the weighing – after all I already have scales.
