Off the Yarnz Wagon

I have a confession to make: my yarn of not buying yarn is over… I failed. Not only did I claim some yarn in the swap group I’m in, and not offer up at least the equivanet amount, but I also got some yarn as a RAK and kept it, and (worst of all!) I bought some yarn…

I’m trying to come up with a good excuse, but I can’t. The offending yarn is Panda Cotton in the colourway Blueberry-grapes. I’ve had this colourway before and made a nice pair of socks, which were too small. So, I’ve had my eyes open for more, and when I saw some in destash on Raverly, I had to snap it up.

Lovely blue and purple yarnz

And, you know what makes it even better, after I sent the person a message about it and we agreed on a price, I figured out that I was buying yarn from the author of Sweater Quest. How cool is that? So, if I had to fall off the wagon, that isn’t a bad way to do it.

I am, though, happily, still down from the number of balls of yarn I started the year with. And, once I pick up some beautiful silver lace-weight yarn from a friend, I’m back on the wagon for the foreseeable future… unless I find any more Panda Cotton for a great price. 😉

    We all have to give in and buy yarn sometimes and at least you are still down from where you started at the beginning of the year.

    Me, well I am not saying anything. I just love yarn and can find sales.

    Who could stay on the wagon when this floats past? It’s beautiful!
