No New Clothing (Sort of)

March 14th, 2014 at 07:31 pm

I've been very good about not buying any new clothing (after my determination in December that I have more than enough clothes already).

I can't say I wasn't tempted by some of the sales in early February, but I didn't buy anything.

However, I did finish this cardigan that was on the needles, so I get a new sweater.

I had to borrow my friend's wooly board (that's the wooden contraption that it's sitting on) in order to stretch it a little bit. I so want a wooly board, but it's about $100. I am going to look in craigslist and ebay to see if someone is selling one used for less.

Anyway, hopefully the cardi is big enough now (I must have knitted tightly!).

PS - yarn was purchased last year (yarn comes out of my knitting budget - yes, I budget for knitting!) and was about $30 (maybe a little less); it's a very soft wool/acrylic.

    Pretty! I always admire crafty skills (of which I completely lack!)

    So cute!! If you lived nearby I would pay you to teach me. I hope you can find a used wooly board online.

    Cool! I'd never heard of a wooly board. One of the tricks of the trade, eh?

  5. Buendia Says:

    Aw - thank you everyone! I would teach you all to knit if you were here! It's not hard - I promise. Just time-consuming. But a great way to watch tv!

    I love it!

    Beautiful! It looks like it would have been difficult. That's a real talent!

  9. Buendia Says:

    You're all very kind - but I promise it's not talent. I just followed the directions! I love doing cables; they look hard but are actually really fun.

    It looks great! I second all the above comments. Smile
    Could you make one of those wooly boards? Otherwise I hope you can find one cheap someday.

    Would you consider putting a Wanted ad on your local Buy 'n Sell Craig'sList for a Wooly Board?

    So nice! I love that you budget for knitting. We all need enrichment in our lives. I too wonder if a wooly board is something that could be made?
