It was just a single skein … Where’s the harm in that? *she said defensively*
Ah, well, you see … it was 10 weeks into the “yarn fast”, which had been arranged by our knit-and-natter group at the beginning of the year, in the run-up to our away-day to Wonderwool Wales taking place at the end of April.
I fell off the wagon. Whoops.
A moment of weakness … and I walked away with this super-soft skein of alpaca, produced less than 2 miles from the stockist, my local yarn shop, in a village called Trimpley.
A 100g skein of double-knit, the colour is a rich, tonal, chocolate brown.
In hindsight, perhaps I was really craving chocolate at the time? 😉
I’m planning to make Gilda fingerless mittens by Belinda Harris-Reid.
Falling off the yarn wagon does have its advantages – after all, it saved me from the calories of the chocolate bar and the effects will be much more rewarding and long-lasting!
Have you ever attempted a yarn fast? How did it go? Did anything tempt you to break the fast? I’d love to hear about it!
