Confessions of a skull-obsessed knitter

Restraint

Last Friday I volunteered at the Relax & Knit stand at the Ugly-Ass-Cross-Stitch-Expo. It was good to meet so many knitters and realise I've been reading their blogs for ages!
I got the warm fuzzies from teaching someone purse stitch, seeing the enthusiasm for new and exciting yarns, and all of that good stuff.

Obviously, I shopped a little bit too. I was sooooo sensible. I took cash out the night before, and left my cards at home. I shopped so cannily, that I had enough money left to buy gourmet chocolates for the friends I was meeting later :)

Yes, I'm going to give socks another go, once I finish a few of the current projects. This yarn is just the prettiest stuff ever, and I couldn't leave it alone.

I bought a drop spindle a few weeks ago, and then HipKnits had this fantastic zine on their stall. It's incredibly down to earth, and has lots of useful stuff about vegetable dyes too. Yay!

This is going to become a Tubey, I think.

Mmm, that pink/purple mixed color yarn is yummy. I am jealous of your shopping excursion!
