Confession Time


I was talking to mom on the phone this weekend, telling her all about my next knitting project. I’m going to make a copy of Jared Flood’s Autumn Leaves Stole for a friend of mine who just had a baby. She’s struggling to juggle baby, baby bag, purse and winter coat. “I wish I had something I could just throw on,” she said. How could I resist that?

The only problem was that I did not have any appropriate yarn in my stash to make the shawl. So I purchased some. It’s a lovely rhubarb colored tweed that I know she’ll love.

It only took me about a week to violate my solemn vow to abstain from purchasing any more yarn until Yarnover. And Mom called me on it. Good for her. I need someone to keep me honest. Plus, now I know that she’s been reading my blog.

In my defense, the shawl is for a new mom. That’s a lot like doing something to help a pregnant lady. And everybody knows that all the rules go by the wayside when helping a pregnant lady.

So you see, my excuse holds up. Right?

  1. Hey! Your excuse works for me. New moms need all the help and encouragement they can get, even if it means *sacrificing* your vow on the altar of Knitting For Charity!
