Blogtoberfest Day 6: If only...

If only ... Knitting and crocheting wasn't becoming addictive
If only ... I could knit and crochet faster
If only ... I had the patience to finish one project before starting another
If only ... I stopped visiting blogs and Ravelry then I'd stop seeing so many damn nice patterns
If only ... online shopping wasn't so damn easy
If only ... I was more restrained and bought JUST what I go shopping for
If only ... shipping was just a touch slower, just enough so one projects stash arrives AFTER the previous project is finished
If only ... there were more hours in the day then maybe I'd get some of my projects done quicker

My complete lack of self control LAST WEEK on all the above has led to this big bunch of yummy-ness arriving this morning

Six balls of Lion Cotton-Ease in Summer colours for a new crochet project.

THIS WEEKS lack of self control has led to these being ordered last night...
This Luxury 4ply in Baby Blossom (Image Bendigo Wools) to be used on ...


Kitty cardigan from Heirloom Stitches (Image Heirloom Stitches). Isabella WILL wear this even if I have to put it on her while she's sleeping.

A ball of This Cotton 8ply in Denim Cotton (Image Bendigo Wools) to be used on ...

Girls Cap Sleeved Spring Shirt (Image soulfullhues). Also for Isabella who ASSURES me she will wear it. I am not convinced but it just looks so damn cute over here and here.
And a ball of Luxury 10ply in Lake (Image Bendigo Wools) for...

Some Blossom Stitch Cloths for Christmas Presents and some more cup cozies (Image Toni Smoky-Mountains via Ravelry)

I forsee many many hours of knitting and crocheting ahead of me. Now excuse me while I get back to my big basket that arrived this morning 'cause last nights shopping spree is already on it's way.

Tomorrow on Blogtoberfest: My links for knitting basics for beginners

Ha! I understand three and four only too well. Too much time blog surfing, finding cute tutorials to do 'one day' and never doing them because I find something else just as cute the next time I log on. I feel your pain....

Goo luck x

Beautiful stash enhancements, and lovely projects to knit too - I've knit the cap sleeve top before (for a swap) and it was dead easy :)

woah! so much goodness going on here!

I have a suspected wool allergy (I am loving all the cotton yarn!) and I get tennis elbow when I crochet, but will that stop me? No!
