The joys of wool

This week I have been soooo self-indulgent! But its made me oh so happy.

I have spent a ridiculous amount of pennies on the softest, loveliest wool and it's just been delivered by the nice postman. I am so excited!

I did ummm and ahhhh about this wool purchase, mainly because I couldn't bring myself to spend so much money on wool. I consulted crafty friends on the purchase and of course, they convinced me that it was money worth spent. I did a bit of research in blogland and realised that others often indulge in luxurious yarn. So after a lot of pondering, a few clicks here and there on the laptop and voila, 50 balls of Rowan Cashsoft Chunky was ordered. I did feel guilty for a little while and even now, I can't believe I was so self-indulgent!

But the wool has arrived and look!

12 lovely soft colours

Beautiful, aren't they? A blend of merino and cashmere. I chose more muted tones as I want this for my bedroom. My plan is to crochet a luxurious blanket for my bed. It will take me ages but the end result will be worth it. I can't wait to get started!

Have a lovely Saturday! xx
