About Me

I´m a total crafts junkie and started with knitting and crocheting when I was 10 years old. Over the years I got totally addicted to yarn and fibers and what you can do with them when you knit them or crochet them. Well, to make a long story short. I have to much yarn now! A lot of unfinished projects and I kept buying new yarn! This is the experiment, that in the next 365 days I will not buy any new yarn and will use up all the yarn I got to make things and then sell them in my onine store. At the end of this year I will donate 5% of my earnings to a good cause, which I still have to find. Please feel free to add me, follow my blog, subsribe or just e-mail me to make suggestions for a good cause!

Day 7 - I was so bad today...

Well.... how should I start?

Hi, my name is Beatrice and I´m a Yarnoholic! I can´t pass by a yarn store without looking. And today apperently also buying.

I was so good since I started my 365 days project and also finished two projects, but today was...I don´t kow?...BAD!!!

I wanted to look for buttons for the toddler sweater I´m knitting and it happens that at the same department they sell yarn. So I couldn´t resist and bought some really nice yarn (3 skeins) of a greyish yarn with white and black dots in it!

I waited for the lady at the register to scream, NO!, she´s back!, let´s close the doors and don´t let her in or she will shop all the yarn we have left... but nohing! I also waited for someone to wrestle me down, clime on top of me so I can´t buy the yarn and shout:"YARN POLICE! Drop all the yarn you have in your hands!" But again nothing like that happened.

So I bought the 3 skeins and went home and started right away with the February Baby Sweater of Elizabeth Zimmermann and so far it knits up pretty fast. I think I will at least finish the Yoke and the beginning of the pattern tonight.

But before I have to get something to eat! Knitting and being hungry, don´t really go well together. I had a subway sandwich for lunch but that wasn´t enough.

Pictures of the fnished projects, the new yarn and the FBS (February Baby Sweater) will follow tomorrow.


The Yarn Junkie


  1. Yarn can really do that to you. My husband gave me strict instuctions that I was not allow to bring another skein of yarn until this house until I had at least made him a sweater :)

  2. Yes, Yarn can do that to me! It´s almost 3 a.m. here in Germany and I´m done with the part of the FBS I wanted to be done with tonight. But I had to go back a few rows and start again with the lace pattern. Well, it wil be for a beautiful baby! :-D
