I Went on a Bender...

I have been really well behaved this month (or at least I was well behaved). I've only bought one skein of yarn since Lent began. I've been knitting hats for the Optimist Challege out of stash. Lots and lots of stash baby! I probably should have kept track....




Hmm... 13 hats and I get about 2 hats per skein so roughly 6 skeins of yarn. Not bad in one month! The sad thing is, I'm not sure that it really made a dent in my stash.




So today I went to the LYS to (get out of the house) get some uninterrupted knitting time. I finished up one hat and made another in the time that I was there! As I was sitting there, being tempted by all the new yarns, I realized that I have hardly any blue yarn in my stash. And since our friends just had a baby boy, I will have to knit something blue. I have to, it's not even an option, it's a compulsion. I picked up 2 skeins of Malabrigo (are you shocked? I think it's my absolute fav of all time) and 2 skeins of Kidsilk Haze. The Malabrigo is chocolate brown with aqua and will be a baby surprise jacket and the kidsilk (one skein of aqua, one of brown) will be booties.


I was also drooling over this hard core... it's Malabrigo silky marino. Maybe after Lent.


Back to knitting hats... I haven't really made any progress on my list of things to knit that I posted back in February. Hats, hats, everywhere hats.
