Knitting Stash

This week my knitting stash grew with the arrival of 11 balls of Rowan Cotton Glace from the lovely Cait at Alterknitives. Now that I've finished my arm-warmer-things, I can get started on my next project, a stripy jumper. I'm a bit intimidated - I've never knitted anything to this scale before, and what if I get bored of it?

I also joined Ravelry this week, which is proving to be an amazing source of information, but a very big distraction from actually knitting anything. There's just too much to look at; other projects, advice on what yarns to use - it's all very informative but I'm spending too much time browsing it.

Another issue with my new hobby - my need for knitting accessories - the more I have makes me a better knitter, right? I'm trying to convince myself that that is the case, but deep down I know the only way to improve is by making more stuff. I couldn't help myself when I saw this bag on Etsy though. It's a great size to take on public transport, and it fits just what you need if you're working on something smaller. Jenniegee hand-makes them, as well as posters and other goodies.
