Its so hard not to give in to temptation, and I mean of the wooly variety!! I was ruthless last weekend and listed loads of my wool and Rowan books on ebay. I knew I would never get round to knitting from the Rowan books, as I can't afford the wool, and I am not skinny, so they cost a lot to knit. I thought I made a lot of money, but it cost me £75 to post all the stuff. I am trying to save some money for a trip away for my birthday and Alexandra Palace in October, but I did give in and treat myself to an online knitting class courtesy of Anniken Allis a.k.a http://www.yarnaddict.co.uk/ I have wanted to learn to knit without dropping the needle and throwing the yarn. So this way I get to learn a new skill. I also looked on http://www.brooklyntweed.net/ and bought myself 3 knitting patterns, gorgeous from woolpeople 3. I was tempted by the yarn, but it's a bit pricey, like £77 to knit a cardigan.
I have been knitting small things recently, a lovely lacy cowl which was a pattern supplement in a knitting magazine, it looks lovely, I will take some photos soon. Also now I am knitting some gloves, ready for winter, but the state of the weather it won't be long before I am knitting them.
Anyway I must go, bedtime, I have work at 7.30 in morning. Happy knitting
