First stash acquisition of the year

Happy Monday, everyone. I hope you all had lovely weekends :)

I broke the screen of my beautiful Macbook Air a few weeks ago and finally put it in for repairs on Friday. I know it's stupid but I really miss it! I'm working my old very heavy, very slow laptop that doesn't have any of my bookmarks, favourites or Word shortcuts stored in it and it's just not the same. I know, I know, first world problems, but still! Also, and this is even more heartbreaking, the cost of the repairs is the exact same cost of the iPad I wanted. Grrr!!

Fortunately a package arrived from Bendigo Woollen Mills that cheered me right up:

This is the first lot of yarn I have bought all year. I had no idea I'd been so restrained! There is two balls of 8ply cotton in Daffodil to make a Serenity baby blanket, one ball each of Luxury 8ply in Sunflower and Purple Storm to make an Op Art baby blanket and a ball of unlabelled burgundy sock wool because (honestly) it was $8 for 100g of superwash sock wool and I cannot resist sock wool that cheap.

And, because it doesn't count as stash if you cast on straightaway:

I may have to wait a bit longer to buy an iPad but at least I'll have a lot of knitting to do in the meantime!
