I'm Innocent I tell you...really! :)

Yarn Project Focus, originally uploaded by Ruinwen.

Okay, I know you are saying, "Ruinwen you said no more yarn until you finish your projects..."

And you are right, but I didn't buy any of it myself, it was all gifted.

My sister blessed me with The Sweater Workshop by Jacqueline Fee A Gathering of Lace by Meg Swanson, Kniting From the Top by Barbara Walker and The Knitting Way: A Guide to Spiritual Self Discovery.

With the exeption of the last book (which was a surprise) these are books I have been chomping at the bit to own. Thank you sis! :)

My parents blessed me with yarn from Knitpicks. Six skeins of each: Merino Style in Storm and Wool of the Andes in Hyacinth.

I've already started the ponchette on kpixie in the storm and I love the pattern.

My LYS wonderful lady blessed me with an cable and bobble sweater in pumpkin spice. It was last year's model and it fits me to a Tee! And she also blessed me with 5 skeins of Maggi Knits Multi Linen Color 102! It is like pumpkins and fall all rolled into one. I've been wanting to try it and she gave it to me to make a ponchette for me! Isn't she the best!?!

So see dear readers, I did not buy anything new, I have not broken my promise and all is right with the world.

Happy crafting,
