Major Fail....

Boy did I ever fall off the yarn diet wagon this month. More about that later. First, the good news!



College afghan:
Once again, I have an excuse for my indiscretions this month. Yarn Chef finally had an update. How am I supposed to resist beauty such as this?

This was bought in a moment of weakness - won't it make a lovely laceweight cardigan?

In retrospect, this I could have done without. I succumbed to the temptation of ordering some sight unseen FSM from Sundara at a small discount. After ordering, I had a sinking feeling that I would end up with another skein of Caramel Apple (I already have 3, and no one is looking for any, so it is basically un-tradeable.) Guess what? That's exactly what I got. Major suckage. But a lovely fellow raveler came to my rescue and traded me a skein of Pale Sky over Sugared Violet that she had not had any success in destashing:

Even after casting on a project using double yarn and knitting furiously, I still ended up buying about 1000 yards more than I knit this month. Bad knitter. I will try to do better next month. At least Yarn Chef shouldn't be having any more updates....
