Honestly, I'm not.
So can someone please explain this.....................................
which involved a last minute dash to the not-very-local-but-very-very-lovely wool shop over at Ring-a-Rosie before they closed at 5pm. And also involved the kidnapping of a certain Bloggy-friend.
And I didn't buy it because I wanted to - it was because I needed to - I really think I have a problem.
And yesterday I had to buy this
because of the little Easter Bunny in the bottom corner
And look how many Easter Eggs I have knitted from it already
(notice also the fact that the bunny is nowhere to be seen - I think we can safely say I bought the magazine for the mini basket of eggs!)
And I have also knitted this one from Julie's pattern
but I couldn't get the right sized polystyrene egg so it doesn't have a perfect shape.
And then I had to buy this pattern so I could make this for my friend's birthday
(especially as I had bought her a cake stand and some gorgeous cup-cake style ramekin/bowl-y things)
So I simply had to buy more cup-cakey-type colours to knit some for myself didn't I?
and then some gorgeous "iced" button flowers to go on top?
And because we all know that I have finish-itis I decided that the only way for me to knit a second sock was if I did it in a different colour
My excuse (and I'm sticking to it) is that by the time I have knitted a blue sock, the patterning of the first sock wool will be interesting again so I'll enjoy doing that and then when I have finished the second of the first pair of socks I can do the second blue sock - geddit???? And in the meantime I can maintain Locket family tradition by wearing totally odd socks!
And while I was in the wool shop I purchased the solution to my "lack of needles" problem
So I can start new projects to my heart's content!
And what is to blame for this current knitting insanity?
My new book - which is now being read for the second time in a week
Hope you all have a very Happy and Wooly Easter!
P.S. Look at these gorgeous clips that I bought from this incredibly talented person's etsy shop (not that I'm biased, not at all........................!)
All wrapped in beautiful gingham!
