Look what I got!!!!

I decided at the beginning of october that perhaps my yarn hoarding was getting just a little out of hand, and maybe I should commit myself to a stashalong!! I have attempted to curb my yarn buying once and have to admit that I failed extraordinarily:O But this time, I'm determined to succeed:-)
I did buy some town and country sock yarn for a tank top, but am blaming that slight lapse on pictish;-)
Here's what I bought on my day off from getknitted!

The debbie bliss cashmerino aran is to make a Sharfik for my dads birthday present. The beads are for a jaeger cardi for my niece which I'm going to do in ryc 4ply but that was out of stock.

I love the "classics" book by Erika Knight, there are a few tops in there I'd like to make, and best still, I can use stash:-)

I've also done a little more of Ivy, which is for my sisters christmas present, I think I'm safe to post it on here, she's unlikely to search for knitting blogs online:-) I'm using debbie bliss cathay, which is knitting up nicely, its quite shiney but I think thats ok for a christmassy top!

the knit simple mag has a few nice things in it, better than the last one was I think. I really like the jumper on the cover but all the yarns are american this time, so woud need to work out subs:-(

nice day off then ;) I just bought some of the cathay in that exact same colour from the forum last week - that was my day off in october. my day off in november is reserved for pictish's sock yarn sale - LOL!!!!!

the ivy is looking really pretty, shame i've only got 10 balls of the cathay. oh well, might have to get more :)

Belaybunny, I'll have some left I'm sure! I'll let you know how much I used when I've finished, and how much I have left.

*shock* what ME????? ;-)

That's a lovely little haul and great minds etc ........ cos I have that Erika Knight book on order at work and I caught a glimpse of it last night and it is gorgeous with as you say lots of wearable things you can do from stash.

Is pictish having a sock yarn sale then??? :-))
