You might remember from a couple of posts a little while ago (see here and here), that I hardly have ANY yarn to knit with at home…. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

I am trying very hard to knit only from my stash at the moment – after all, the reality is that I have such lovely choices.

Even so, there are times when it becomes impossible to resist new yarn. Β I just had to have this ‘Bollywood’ sock yarn from The Knitting Goddess. Β It arrived beautifully wrapped – anything which turns up in purple packaging is a bonus for me.

How beautiful this is – almost too nice to open up and knit with…..

I am so glad I nipped in smartly with my order – I see from the website today that this colour way is sold out. Β There are plenty of other delicious options – I am currently desperately resisting buying more skeins, but I fear my resolve may not last….

I know this is all going against my stash-reduction goals for this year, but hey – it is such enjoyable failure!! πŸ™‚
