Woolly Madness

Oops! I think I rather over did it with retail madness in July. My stash grew in leaps with the addition of roving, undyed sock yarn, and some gorgeous Lorna's Laces Shepherds Sock yarn. So much yarn I fel it was important to stop buying.

Then I signed up for Hat Attack II. I am looking forward to this immensely but feel I could either (a) die very quickly or (b) get bored of knitting the same hat over and over again. However, the joy of murder by hat is too great to resist. Also, the yarn for this yarny mayhem is just gorgeous. SWTC called it Therapi and it is just what I need.

I really must not buy yarn in August. Not.buy.YARN. Have I gone insane?

Anyway, the Olympics starts tomorrow and to celebrate I joined the sweatersprint at Ravelympics. My aim is to knit a short sleeved top in 17 days during one of my busiest months.

All power to the needles ... that's what I say.

Anyway, I am off to the City of Culture (Liverpool) for a grand weekend.

Plan to post on my return (with photos coz it is much more interesting).
