I’m not even going to check my 16 for 2016 list because I feel sure I said no more buying yarn, as I need to use what I have. But I shall blame today’s lapse entirely on my friend! It was so silly of us to meet at a yarn shop where there’s a sale on, with baskets and shelves laden with really lovely, good quality yarns at great prices. This Louisa Harding Orielle was originally £6.95 a skein, now it’s reduced to £4; well you would probably have found it difficult to resist too.
It’s lovely stuff that I used to knit my first pair of mock cable fingerless mitts. It’s such a lovely colour, with a pretty sparkle running through and is really soft and warm. They are my most favourite pair of mitts. Ok, lapse justification over..!
I’m still darning blanket ends, they’re nearly finished then I can start a new project, rather than post photos of skeins of yarn. I banned myself from starting anything new until the blanket was done. It all has be finished by tomorrow night, so I shall probably be darning the last ends and speed crocheting the border as you read! I’ve just started this audio book by J.K Rowling, it’s the third in the series. Robert Glenister is from TV’s Hustle and does such a good job narrating these audio books that I find myself totally transported to where the story is taking place. I’m gripped by what’s happening. Let’s hope it happens again as I plod on with the remaining ends tonight…
I’m joining in with Ginny’s Yarn Along once again.
that yarn looks lovely. I saw sale signs in my local yarn shop and I had to hold onto my purse and walk right on by because I know I wouldn’t have been able to resist.
Your yarn looks so soft! I can almost feel it through my monitor! And the color appeals to me immensely!

I love the Cormoran Strike books. I listened to all three with Robert Glenister as the narrator as well and now I can’t imagine anyone else as Cormoran. I can’t believe how long we’ll be waiting for the fourth book :(
PS – the colour of that yarn is *divine*. I’d probably use it for socks, but I have a real addiction to those!
How long will we be waiting?
What pretty, sparkly yarn. I don’t think I’ve used hers before. And that was a good deal on it. I can see why you couldn’t resist. I have to try Rowling’s adult books.
I get tempted by bargain yarn but then I don’t know how much to buy so I can make something, so don’t get any. :-(
I love that yarn! I made a cropped cardigan out of that in a light blue for my second daughter. That is a wonderful red.
