Although I did not make any New Year's Resolutions publicly, in my mind I decided I would buy no more yarn of any sort until I had made a very large hole in my stash. I had been very good, cast on and finished the cream scarf,and started a bag from lovely boucle wool that I bought last year. However, while making a journey to a funeral yesterday, I would pass by 'Springwools' in Walkinstown, and the bag I had started would need a button when finished, and so I went there to look for the button as I had a little time to spare!
How could anyone leave these two balls of Noro 'Shinano' at 3.95euro each! Well I certainly couldn't and I have no project in mind yet. I have not seen this particular one before. It is 65% wool and 35% silk. Any ideas anyone?
Well I have the buttons now for the original project, and have no need to go to another yarn shop for a while.
Had a yummy lunch today in Avoca at Rathcoole. Delicious potato and celeriac soup with their lovely cheese bread, and to follow, a slice of their meringue roulade with cream and berries. I couldn't finish dessert though as the portion was enormous. Second resolution gone. So much for my healthy eating plan! Went for an extra walk this evening though. Better luck tomorrow.
