I went to the library this morning and picked up a few books for daughter and a couple for myself; Men in Knits, Fair Isle Sweaters Simplified, and The Secret Life of a Knitter.Ã‚Â As I got home the mail was arriving and my order fromÃ‚Â The Knitting Zone arrived.Ã‚Â Woohoo!
One of the LYS is having a storewide sale, 30% off this week and 40% off next week.Ã‚Â I decided to go and have a look, maybe pick up a couple of patterns.Ã‚Â Really, I can be strong, I can delay gratification.Ã‚Â Shut up! I can too . . .Ã‚Â umm . . . just not today.Ã‚Â
That is seven skeins of wonderful Mission Falls 1824 wool, purchased at 30% off, so I can make this sweater for my daughter.
My Stashalong days have come to an end.Ã‚Â I will try again starting April 1st, I love the Stashalong and love the idea of knitting from my stash, but I just couldn’t resist the sale.Ã‚Â
Here are some out-takes from today’s photoshoot, Son wanted to be in the pictures.
