- of inspirations
and most importantly
- of $$$
no photos as my camera is now in the midst of Shanghai. hope my folks take care of it. else they will get a brand new one as replacement. *tsk tsk*
why is it everytime i look at my stash, i don't seem to find something suitable for a pattern. even i spent time swatching, the Little Voice just keep nagging that its never gonna make it for the correct gauge. isn't this frustrating? i think this happens to lots of knitters out there.
everytime we will stash up if there's a sale or a bulk purchase (think yarncoop). hoping that this will save us some buckaroos. infact we are spending even more, spending on yarns which we don't know what it is for. even if we did plan ahead, are we going to stick to it? hardly, but personally i did for a few projects. however i really feel unhappy with some of my stash. would most probably destash soon. and i will stick to buying yarns for a single project at anytime.
on a happy note, i have finally keep to "one project at a time". no more multiple projects on my interchangeble needles. or perhaps i don't need this set any longer. might sell it for yarns? beats me.
another happier note, i did a check on my completed projects since last year when i learnt to knit. and i have been sticking to most of what i intend to knit.
