Remember all those good intentions about finishing projects off before starting any new ones? Well does buying the stuff to do a project but not actually starting it count? No! Phew….
Another local knitter Christine blogged earlier in the week about a fabulous scarf called Volna she had just finished. So beautiful. Unfortunately I read the post yesterday just before heading off to meet up with another friend at a cafe next to the Wool Cabin yarn shop in Clacton…… Yeah you know what happened.
The pattern suggests either a solid colour way or one with long colour repeats. Now I know as soon as someone says long colour repeats many people immediately reach for the Noro yarns. But instead I came home with two balls of Rico Design ‘Creative Poems’ Aran. Different colours but both very very pretty.
Of course they might not end up as a Volna scarf but seriously, at least I had an excuse to buy the yarn. I normally don’t even bother with an excuse. Hey come on, give me some credit for at least coming up with an excuse……
