And... I Fell Off the Wagon

Two and a half months into 2007 and I bought this from Knitomatic's Attic Clearance Sale. At these prices, who could resist?

Rowan Linen Print - I bought ALL 12 skeins at $2 each
Lana Grossa Sock Yarn (100g) - 2 skeins at $5 each
Lana Grossa Sock Yarn (50g) - 2 skeins at $3 each
Arcuna Wool - a few skeins at $4 each
A couple balls of alpaca, merino yarns (Rowan, Elsebeth Lavold) - $1 each
Some ribbon yarn for a Collinette Throw - inspired scarf shown on the cover of Vogue Knitting Fall 2003 - Various skeins at $1 each

I figured if I fell off the wagon, I'd go all out!

In the meantime, I'll leave you with some WIP's:

1) Corazon from Knitty.

2) Lady Eleanor from Scarf Style

3) Baby blanket from yarn leftovers, my own design.

Till next time!

Damn, at those prices, who would blame you for giving in?

Those are such great bargains, I would fall off the wagon too! :-)

All the latest projects are looking great. Are you using the machine to knit the blanket?

Little Sesame said...

Wow, you've got some really great deals... and those WIPs are impressive! You're waaaaaaaay ahead of me on that Lady E ;o)

It must have been so much fun at this sale. Such great buys! ;)
Oh I am envious of you, so much progress on your knitting!

Needle Addict said...

Now I'm really jealous that I missed the sale. oh and the lady eleanor is coming along nicely

Vivian said...

Wow...those yarns you got really in such a great deal. That's not too much, if for me, I'll even buy more. ;)

Kimberli said...

Wow! great deals!!!
I'll have to watch and see what you make!!
I've been on a yarn diet -- but Italy and France are in my future...and there's a yarn shop across from my hotel...
can I hold out?

OH! Fantastic Lady Eleanor. What yarn did you use on yours? I want to make one badly, but I haven't given in to the urge to do some more shopping for yarn just yet, although I know the day is coming very, very soon. I also have to say that the attic sale is just sooo very tempting. It's totally understandable why you had to give in. At prices that low, it just shouldn't count!
