Thanks to knitting I am also now supporting a yarn addiction. I have been purchasing yarn from online stores, notably this lovely one, like a crazed turkey. I'm going to have to buy an extra large basket just to store all my yarn.
So I thought I'd keep track of my projects, to hold myself accountable for my yarn stash.
My very first project was a green scarf, knitted 3 years ago. It's still serving me very well, including as a very comfy and warm little bed for pussy cat on her first night in Singapore!

Well the missing sock is partly explained by my casting on for this "mittenscarf" (left), also for Japan but again, I did not finish it before getting on the plane and had to continue knitting it while on holiday. Finished it on my last night there, and got to use it for all of 2 hours.
2 days ago, I used super bulky yarn I bought at Avril, an amazing little yarn store in Tokyo, to "finger crochet" this mushroomy beanie (i.e. no needles or crochet hooks) - super fun, and I don't even know how to crochet! Plus, I completed it in less than an hour.
A few hours ago, I had heaps of fun winding a hank of Koigu KPPPM yarn into a cute little ball.
And that's where I'm up to for the moment.
