Who stole my willpower?

I said I wouldn't..........but I did!

A sale here meant I bought this:


But at 79p a ball it was well worth it. This crochet blanket is in the same yarn and is so snuggly and warm that I'm going to make a bigger version for John for when he watches TV late in the evening.

And this yarn is simply stunning:


Remember I told you here about the GP mama rehoming some of her stash/ Well I couldn't resist and after the T'ika arrived I just had to get back in touch and ask for the Araucania too. Thanks Kate, it's lovely. Now please don't offer away any more!
No makes to reveal today but I might have a new little one to show soon, just getting to grips with a new craft which is gripping me intently.
Take care all and happy crafting.

I'm sorry, I believe I may be to blame a bit for the Kemps Wool sale info.

I love the Araucania - what beautiful colours. What do you have planned for it?

Oooh, I spent rather a lot on some beautiful pink and purple Araucania when I was back in Uk last week. It is just so gorgeous but I am almost tempted to just sit and look at all the gorgeousness rather than actually knit anything with it!!

Lovely wool, Becks!! I knitted my first sock, thanks to you and have now purchased some gorgeous yarn that self patterns for the boys socks they keep asking for!! Halfway through the first one now...I have started knitting during my sond swimming lesson as socks aren't too big to carry around are they?!!
Thank you again for your generous giveaway!
