Pink!


So, how much longer have I got? When is Ally Pally? I have already been over to Posh Yarn, just to window shop you understand. There is some lovely dark red/purple Camel that would go so well with all my other purpley Posh Camel. But I have remained strong. Still not bought any yarn. And Jenny, thanks, but your comment that Socktopus has some of that lovely Somoko has just not helped. Who do you think I am? Mrs Will-of-Iron? I need help here people!

And Warren, you could have offered £10 for every item finished if I don't buy yarn until Ally Pally. You know me too well! Your money is safe!!!!!

Anyway, do you like this cake (she says desperately trying to take her mind off the multitude of yarn shops available on line)? All I was told about for this one was 'providing it's pink, we don't mind'. The photo has made it look like the 't' has bled all over the cake. It hadn't and is now quite annoying me. Wish I'd spotted that at the time.

Going to turn the computer off now. Not going to check out the destashing forums in Ravelry. Not going to hunt out the yarn section of e-bay. Not going to check out Somoko at Socktopus. Going to do some of Lizard Ridge. After all, that was my top priority.

A suggestion - every time you are tempted to buy a delicious skein of cashmere or silk, put the money aside (you could knit yourself a money box!) and then when you go to Ally Pally you will have loads to spend. And you get to spend all the money you would have spent anyway, and Warren still has to pay you. Warren only promised £1 for each finished item as he thinks there is a chance (slim!!) you will stick to the resolution...
Evie is blowing raspberries with great enthusiasm so she obviously thinks you can do it! Kathryn x

You can do it! You can! You can!


ps: we're trying to make it until Ally Pally? That's OCTOBER, right? I was thinking more like May (Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival)... However, I'm here for the long haul.
(stop counting your $$ Warren!)

I love your cakes, they're so beautiful. I can't believe people can actually bear to cut them into pieces and *eat* them. I would never be able to.
