So which project to start first from my “snuffled up greedily in the sales” yarn? First – what exactly is the scope of this resolution?? What yarn to I mean? Hmmm…every thing in this blog post “Yarn Sales – Being Good, Bad and Disorganised“, plus the gorgeous, green cashmere from my last post. Actually, It’s […]
I had forgotten that last new year, the Guilty Knitters and I had made knitting resolutions. And that Jane had written them down. (Damn her!) We had much hilarity, thanks to Jane’s careful note taking, rediscovering these knitterly resolution and admitting by how much we had each succeeded or failed. My resolution had been to […]
