Obviously I’ve got the bug really really badly. I can’t believe I just did this, but I bought what seems to be the only large lot left in the UK of Louisa Harding [I]Thalia[/I] skeins in #8 – [I]Beauty[/I], which is a mix of gold, plum, pink and tan, with an overall impression of pink. Its a ribbon yarn, and it’s really beautiful – and it’s the yarn called for in Kristeen Griffin-Grimes new book, [B]French Girl Knits[/B], in the lace tunic [I]Louisa[/I]. I love the pattern, but I specifically fell in love with the yarn.
I agonized for about two hours over whether to buy it or not! I’m don’t even know if I’m a good enough knitter to make the tunic yet! i have five jillion needle sets arriving in the mail soon, and I’ll [I]still[/I] need another one to make this project! And I’ll have to figure out how to store it until I decide to try making it! And the finished tunic itself might not even fit in my luggage! LOL!
[B][I]PLEASE[/I][/B] tell me I’m not the only one who’s bought yarn way more expensive than I can actually afford at the moment for a project that I don’t know when I’ll be good enough at knitting to make… :shock:
