Fact: I am a Yarn Hoarder

I've not bought any yarn for months - 3 months according to my now deleted Ticker - so I felt it was time to go on a minor shopping spree. Did I say minor? *splutters* Well I'm sure it will see me through 2009...


Patons Diploma aran in natural, Twilleys Sincere cotton DK in hessian and silver fern
Stylecraft Loop the Loop in cerise and Twilleys Freedom Wool in grey
Twilleys Spirit DK in a glorious humbug shade, RYC Extra Fine Merino DK in leaf green and Felted Tweed in Rage. Plus a couple of balls of Cygnet Superwash 4ply for good measure.
Colinette Prism in Fire, Tivoli Tweed DK in a stunning emerald shade and Jaeger Extra Fine Merino DK in a luvverly bright, clear lilac shade called Cupid
Jaeger Extra Fine Merino Chunky in Mink, All Seasons Cotton in Cookie and another bout of Jaeger but this time Roma DK in cinnamon
I have plans for all this yarn in the near future, honest! But maybe a stashalong in 2009 really is in order *wink*

The 5-Month Scarf

I finally finished something! A feather and fan scarf knitted in Tess Dawson Merino 4ply and knitted on 5mm needles. A bugger to knit as the yarn is black and I used Rosewood needles which are dark brown:


I do like it - it's long enough to loop round my neck and tuck through. I started in the last week of my PGCE and it's taken almost 5 months to knit. Thank goodness it's finished and not much sewing up to do either.
