This is crazy, I know. Most knitters would probably sympathize, having been in this state before. I don’t know what I was thinking, or rather, I do. I was bored with all my current projects on the go, (too many to list here), and I wanted something new.
So, what have I done? Bought 7 projects worth of yarn. I went through the Herrschners website and the Red Heart website at the same time picking easy, free patterns and the corresponding yarns. And that was how the big box of yarn came into my possession today.
The only downside I see in this experiment is; I am missing needles for all but one of the projects. That is simply a sign that I must start the only project that calls for basic 6.0mm needles. (Ruffled Wrap). Who knows how much the 9 sets of new needles will cost. Because the most important criteria in all this has been fulfilled. That was to ensure the patterns were marked “easy” and that I bought the exact type of yarn being called for.
This hankering for something new may take years to finish. And I may not end up with, what I had planned for, but it will be exciting nonetheless.
