Yup, for 2012 I am going to try going on a yarn diet......shop the stash as Cindi says.....it's not like I don't have enough in my stash to last for a while (er years).
My kind of knitter Cindi is! She looks so happy here - photo taken at Beckside Yarns.
I met Cindy on the Scotland, England Wool Trip in September - she lives in Peterborough and she writes a blog called Purl One.
She also publishes an on-line magazine called "Purl Peterborough" which celebrates the diversity of our knitting community in the Peterborough area. Although the focus is on Peterborough, Cindi branches out - for example the current edition of Purl Peterborough has a great article on Iceland right now - how it is surviving not only the world-wide financial crisis, but it's own crisis with their volcanos erupting. It is a great read and led me to a new blog which I'd like to follow.
I cut and paste her name to get the proper accents. She is a multi-crafter so her blog is very diverse. My taste is blogs is always changing - I add and delete from my bloglines regularly. How about you? Do you find you follow the same blogs forever - or do you switch it up every once in a while.
This blog will be switching it up too. I have taken up water colour painting.....well, I've taken up water colour painting classes - I'm not sure how long this will last, but it is already making me look at my yarn shades differently. Interesting how one interest compliments the other. More on this later.
