CK is another thing, that I have discovered over the last year or so. I do love some of her stuff. I know it's expensive, somehow that makes me want it more. But I don't think I could spend £40 ish on a oilcloth bag, nice though they are. I do have a purse, a pencil case, a gadget holder (itouch size), a mini purse (£1 coins for parking), a zip up purse for drugs (paracetemol and ibuprofen), another clasp purse (my cash, that I earn from knitting), a shopping bag, a see through pencil case (ideal for transporting sock knitting), a material bag (free gift from CK in Cornwall) and some tissues. I think I am about Cath'ed out now. I don't need anything else. But I know in April I am going to Bath with my mum and my sister-in-law, and I know that I will go into the CK store that's there.
It's the same with yarn. I love it (surprised aren't you?) I love the colours, the textures, and then planning what I am going to knit with it. Trouble is I store it away in my lovely wool trunk and then forget what I have. I have started to list it all, some of it is on ravelry.com If you haven't been on there, join, it's great. A good way to see what other people have knitted with the yarn you might be thinking about using. I have over 18kg of wool. But I still am tempted by other stuff. I have tried now, to only buy it if I have a project in mind. I mean how many odd balls of wool do you need? You can only knit so many scarves. Maybe one day I will post a picture of my stash, but maybe not, I don't know who is going to read this!!
Off to finish a hat for my grandaugther now.
