All right, you all were very nice and forgiving about the fiber diet and the clearance cotton I shared last Friday. Thank you, I appreciate it very much. But I felt guilty after reading all the comments meant to make me feel better and ease my guilt. Truth is, I don't have any guilt about breaking my promise of a yarn diet
So I've decided on a modified plan and that plan includes buying yarn. I haven't worked out any details other than there will be yarn and no guilt. Besides, I've only been knitting a couple years and I don't think that I should have to limit my knitting experience to things that are in my stash at this point. I mean part of that stash was purchased when I had just started knitting and I have to admit that I wasn't a very good yarn buyer in the beginning. So practice makes perfect and this is the last time you'll hear about a yarn diet from me.
Now, on to the details about this yarn. Today's fiber selection is Fleece Artist Blue Face Leicester. It is aran weight and the color is Flagstone Pathway. I love the muted colors. The yarn has a nice earthy smell too. I do only have one skein, but it is a big one weighing in at 250 grams/375 meters. I've been thinking of trying out Gumperina's Shifting Sands scarf. Although, I might be a little short on yardage to use this yarn. Maybe an Irish Hiking Scarf instead. I'll have to make a swatch and see.
