Not Buyin' It

All month long, since my trip to ThreadBear on July 1, I swore I wasn't going to buy yarn. I haven't. Really. Even this last big sneak up at The Loopy Ewe didn't make me cave! So what you see below, is not a new purchase. Honest. Those were ordered in June when Sarah and I put our names on the waiting list to buy them. They just got here this week. What the hell am I talking about? The Dream In Color Yarn and Tulip Baby Sweater Pattern, that's what!

OK, yes, I bought two of them. But people keep having babies. I will have the pattern afterward to use with other yarn also, if I so desire. Notice they are still in the package?

Instead of starting something new, I'm working diligently on my current WIP's. Thuja sock 2 is nearing completion, as you can see from the photos below.

Last night I even pulled out the Log Cabin afghan and knitted another log. I have cast on for another pair of socks, which I will tell you about later.

Next time I write I will tell you about the hilarious encounter with a muggle (non knitter) male that Sarah, Johari and I had Wednesday evening while having coffee and knitting. Some men are so full of shit.

I admire your self-restraint. I have a few too many things OTN for my liking, and yet I seem to keep casting on for more . . .

Tulip is a great pattern. I'm on my second one.

Like Liz, I also admire your restraint. I'm trying to be true to my two WIPs and ignore the baby knitting urge.

Can't wait to hear the muggle tale!

Did I meet Johari? It was great to meet you and Sarah at YH last Tuesday! I'm looking forward to next week and I promise to be more relaxed about my KIPing. ;-) The yarn for the Tulip sweaters is just gorgeous. I can't wait to see them in progress.
