I was innocently reading thru my usual blogs when I came across one of the Yarn Harlot’s latest post. In that post is a great simple hat, chunky and cabley, quick to knit, and oh so cute.
I headed over to BMFA to browse the yarns and find a couple colorways that would be perfect for hubby’s niece, my aunt and my cousin. Okay, $20/skein x 3 skeins, no problem. Then it dawns on me, I could make matching mittens in the STR! Hmm, that puts it at more like $40-50 per person and I’d have to knit three hats and three pairs of mittens. Okay, that’s still doable. The more I browsed, the more people I wanted to add to the list . . . and the more un-doable the list became.
I’ve now come back to reality and I’m back to one hat/mitten set and . . . I don’t know. This could be a little more crazy leaking out.
