In the spirit of Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday), I did do some pre-Lent yarn purchasing - I discovered Araucania Ranco a few weeks ago and it is lovely, but discontinued. I bought a couple of skeins in my local yarn store last week at full price, but then saw some on eBay for under £3 a skein, so bought another skein of red and three undyed skeins, which I'm hoping to dye using Kool Aid in the garden in the summer with my son (how much mess could we possibly make?).
And possibly less in the spirit of Mardi Gras (I think the point of Mardi Gras is to use up what you already have rather than going out specially to buy some!) I bought some Mini Eggs yesterday to get that final chocolate fix for a few weeks.
|Mini Eggs: the best Easter chocolate!
* I need to add a disclaimer here. I will still be receiving my March and April yarn club boxes from Devon Sun yarns, but they will both remain sealed until Easter.
