SELF-HELP #21

Not doing very well πŸ˜•

Back in January I made a few lists of things I intended to get done in 2020 and all of my intentions were craft related. And so far I am quite pleased with my progress – I am plodding along quite nicely!

I decided back at the time that I was not going to set up myself up to fail by proposing weight loss or lots of exercise. So I have done very little in my free time other than woolly pursuits πŸ˜ƒ

Now that the days are getting longer I am planning my walking regime and to get back in the garden – but not today as it is horribly windy out there🌬🌬🌬

And I really need to be doing something as my stash busting has hit a snag!!! Aldi have had a craft event, I thought I would pop in and just have a look! I came out with a bag full…. I have picked up a couple of kits and more yarn. The stash has grown! And I have added something else to the WIP list πŸ€”

A cowl using the cake of ombre yarn from my new Aldi stash…

Lost in woolliness?

Woolly wishes,

Jane β™‘β™‘β™‘

  1. lovely yarn colours! I saw some very similar, but only 50g cakes in our local ACTION shop the other day, but resisted temptation . . . although now I see how yours is knitting up . . . lol

      1. Hi Maureen, if it’s the Aldi buttoned cowl there aren’t any buttonholes. Ends are sewn together and buttons put on for show. Perhaps you adapted pattern?

  2. Love the colours of this. Those Aldi/Lidl craft events are soo tempting. I’m trying to confine yarn purchases to project specific and or natural fibres only which is working quite well so far.

  3. It doesn’t look like it’s going to sit as stash yarn, anyway – it’s not adding to stash if it goes on needles immediately, is it? My next project is using someone else’s stash, for them, so I won’t be knitting down stash either!

  4. I love to see people knitting. When I was a kid, my mom used to knit all her day in. It’s her private time, I loved to see her smile and I loved to see the colors she combined. But, mom getting old. She no longer knit as she’s tired. Can;t wait to see yours finished. Lots of love ❀
