NOT a New Year's resolution

I'm running a bit out of steam. After posting so many pictures of Egg and my knitting, I feel like I need to do something different. Though I have to say that I can't get enough of taking pictures of Egg and seeing her wear what I made.

I think 2009 is going to be a stash busting year. I had a good start already with all the projects for Egg using gifted yarn and I have some more planned using small amounts of stash yarn. All those two or three (or more) balls that I never knew what to do with. You might get bored with yet another sweater knit in the round. Thing is, with knitting so small I prefer having as few seams as possible, and if I wasn't so lazy I would graft the underarm seams instead of binding off and sewing them up later, as it is I cannot be bothered with putting the stitches on holders.

Having said all that, who knows, I might stumble across some absolutely fabulous yarn tomorrow and throw all my good (?) intentions over board. (Noro Cashmere Island. Want. It. Bad. Hmmm, Cashmere!!)

oh, but if there's a SALE on Noro, that would only be good budgeting to take advantage. Non ?
