Dixie Peach: Kirsti's going to be so disappointed

Kirsti's going to be so disappointed

No yarn purchase for her to drool over. Sorry!

I thought about going downtown today but I changed my mind. The weather, despite what my Weather Pixie may indicate, isn't so terrific. I hate going shopping when it's dreary outside. So instead I've been knitting this afternoon, doing some laundry and getting caught up on a previously recorded episode of Lost.

And you know I have yarn. What I need to do is use the yarn because I have so much of it it's beginning to become a storage problem. If I can get the three other projects I have in mind to do finished then I can being the new stuff with a clear conscience and a place to stash the stash.

I should get up and take pictures of what projects (read: endless array of scarves) I already have finished and try to post them tonight. Perhaps that'll help soften the blow of Kirsti's Dixie-didn't-buy-any-yarn disappointment.

And for a definitely-not-a-disappointment finish, I got a shipment of clothes today that I'd ordered last week. I hate the bra I ordered (different brand than I normally get and it fit terribly) but I love the cotton v-neck henley t-shirt and a pair of pale lilac colored capri pants. And this time I got them in a size smaller than normal. I was getting sick to death of being swallowed in clothes that were so baggy that I looked deflated. The henley t-shirt is white and I got a light blue and light pink one that are backordered.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who finds a style and then proceeded to buy the same item in most if not all the different colors in which they're offered.

You are so not alone in choosing a style and getting it in several colors. I do that quite often. Of course, clothes fit me so terribly right now that when I find something that I think fits me well, I stock up.

Love your finished projects, btw! I've not knitted lately as I need someone to help me get the hang of the English style. I found a group here in BR that meets three times a month so I'm going to head to their meeting very soon.

Definitely go to a group if there's one available. I'll betcha Kirsti would advise the same!

*sniff* No pretty yarn? Aww. Never mind. I'll cope. And besides, I now get to feel all important that I made the title of someone's blog entry!

Yay for knitting anyway. And yay for pictures (I'll post more in that entry)

BC, absolutely join a group. It's one of the main reasons I took up knitting - to meet new people. And I've progressed so much with their encouragement and help too.
