Thursday, 4 February 2016 the Pink

It's been a quiet week on the knitting front as I've been feeling considerably under the weather.  But the sun has come out and the postman has just delivered a couple of skeins I picked up from Ravelry destashes, so I'm having a quick cuppa and fondling nice yarn before I crack on with boring chores!

So first up the scrummy new yarn...which is not surprisingly, Wollmeise.  First up is a bargain NiP (Nobody is Perfect) skein in Versuchkaninchen.  The colours are a mix of my favourites and it's such a beautiful combination that reminds me of spring and tulips!

I also picked up a skein of the really rather decadent Blend in Zarte Knopse.  It's a sport weight with 499 metres per 150g skein and, as the name suggests, a fibre blend with 70% Merino, 20% Cashmere, 10% Nylon.  Deliciously soft!

As well as spending my last remaining yarn funds (I very much need to destash some yarn and a considerable amount of my wardrobe!)  I did manage to finish my second Woolly Wormhead Rosalind in Easyknits Deeply Wicked "Pinky" last weekend. 

I'm seriously tempted to cast on another but am trying to finish all my current WIP's before even considering casting on something new.  I desperately need to organise my WIP basket as well as the yarn stash as that has very much become a "cram it in wherever it fits" arrangement!  I also still want to sew a few more project bags...I think I'm going to have to start planning my days a bit better if I'm ever going to fit in everything I'd like to do since sleeping less is not a valid option hehe!
