Yarn Addiction Update #1

It's been over a month since I first posted about my wool buying addiction. I am pleased to announce I have managed a whole May without buying any yarn!

I was especially proud of myself today, I walked past The Wool Shop (my supplier!) and I could hear it calling to me. I looked in the bargain tubs outside the shop, felt a few balls of the most interesting yarn, including some really lovely ribbon yarn for £1.50 a ball, glanced longingly through the door at the rows of lovely yarns inside and walked away! Now, I know I'll never be completely cured, and to be fair I am now feeling an empty sense of loss in my heart but I'm still very proud of myself.

My name is Loo and I am a wool addict.

I am so proud of you ! Except this morning on the news it was talking about global inflation. So if yarn prices are going to go up, I really need to stock up. Do you set up projects to use up certain yarns?

How good was the yarn sale? LOL

I've started to find projects for suitable yarns. I tend to buy on impulse and I'm a bit like a magpie when it comes to bright colours!

They've always got lots of yarn on sale so it's really a hard temptation to resist!!
