The spirit is willing, but the flesh...not so much...

I am weak.
Uncontrollable stash enhancing purchases:
 "Spring"

"Syttende Mai"

Worth the delightful afternoon trip, with a friend, to a yarn shop in a nearby city, though. ;-)

  1. I wouldn't be able to control myself either - I love that pretty pastel yarn at the top. :)

  2. Goodness that variegated yarn is beautiful! Can't wait to see how it hooks up. Personally I believe a stash is for life and not just for Christmas so feel no guilt, Astri! E x

  5. You can't live on stash busting alone - that would just be silly now wouldn't it and anyway where would you next lot of stash busting come from without new purchases! Love the first one but I am a sucker for Patons Smoothie.

  17. Whew, I feel much better about the stash enhancement now! Thank you all for your support, you all make me laugh. :-D

  18. ha-ha! I see your weakness resulted in purchases. When I went to the yarn store, I couldn't find what I wanted, and though I could have bought many other types of yarns, I resisted and walked away empty-handed. Of course, if I were visiting a yarn shop with a friend in a different town (or country), then that would be a different story and I would be required to buy something. :) Happy crocheting! Tammy

  20. I love Patons Grace ... such a smooth yarn and works up into soft but sturdy projects. And the Cascade Paints is gorgeous. Enjoy! :)
