To justify my purchase, I made myself come up with a project on the spot before I handed over my payment. My project of choice was the Burberry Inspired Cowl Neck Scarf. I rarely knit anything for myself (one of my goals is to do more of this, though!) and the fact that I'd be using the yarn for something I'd keep took away some of the guilt from the impulse buy that I promised myself I would not do.
Here it is in the making...will feature it in an FO Friday post soon!
On another note, I'm hoping to start some Christmas knitting now that my 7000 word paper for school is finished! I'm hoping to start off with a project for my niece (I'm thinking Thirsty Rose but will ask her as she is quite the independent fashionista even at the age of 3) and nephew (I'm thinking Gramps for him) because they are the most fun to knit for! Then I'll see if I have time to work my way through any projects for the rest of my family.
