Fabric Addiction - part 2

Now there's good news and bad news..........

Part 1 of the good news is that I finally bought a sidewinder. I haven't tried it out yet (still searching for some AA batteries) but I will update once I've tested it.

Part 2 of the good news is that I DID NOT BUY ANY FABRIC! I'm still in shock......I rifled through the remnant bins and checked out the specials table but I didn't find anything that I HAD to buy (of course there were plenty of things that I wanted but I resisted).

Instead I bought some pins, some magnetic bag clasps, a new fabric marking pen, some bamboo knitting needles and...........

.......the bad news

I think I may have replaced my fabric addiction with a yarn addiction!

First of all, congratulations on resisting the urge to buy more fabric, and secondly, welcome to the world of yarn!!!! It's just as addictive as fabric.

Congratulations on your will power Cam. (Although Im not really sure that yarn addiction is any cheaper than fabric addiction!.
Have a great weekend

go cam go!
I'm proud of you!
I've seen one of those sidewinders online.. super excited to hear all about it! I would LOVE you to write a review for the Mikes blog about it - and of course for your blog too!

Oh dear... didn't quite make it out the door with just the sidewinder, but you did good - no fabric! Your shelves are thanking you for that. Now you just need to look for some new baskets to hold all that yarn, hehee.

I like the look of the sidewinder & bamboo needles are SO nice to knit with.

I can't believe you didn't buy any fabric-nice work!

I knew you'd come home with something not on the list. I'm keen to hear about the sidewinder too.

Belinda said...

So impressed with your willpower!!!

So that's a sidewinder, let me know how it goes, I like the idea of threading bobbins on the go!

Bec said...

Oh, but what beautiful yarn it is!!! I think I also have to put my hand up for a burgeoning yarn addiction. Yikes!!!

Yep, wool addiction here too! I'm just addicted to everything!
I bought that same wool in the dusty orange colour to make a scarf out of. Your knitting is looking great :D
