As it turns out being no where near my goal didn't stop me from purchasing 660 yd of lovely alpaca worsted weight yarn while in Ottawa last month. It wasn't a free-for-all shop session. I was controlled. I stayed focused by only choosing yarn with a specific project in mind. This cowl has come to the top of my knitting queue these days.

Here's an new addictive knit: Linden Mittens by Jane Richmond. I love this new mitten pattern! I could, and likely will, knit these mittens over and over again! And as you can tell I also have a deep affection for self striping yarn too.

Well, I had better put more effort into destashing because it seems like not buying yarn is not working so well. Although I am trying very hard to be mindful of what I am buying and to plan projects from stash first. I destashed 2,320 yards in February so I figure that I am still ahead in the game.
March will be another issue as I may have looked at (and maybe purchased) sock yarn on the Webs website yesterday... this will only be a problem if I can't accomplish 46 workouts by the end of the month.
That's doable, right?
