On a lighter note: I bought yarn yesterday. Not cheap yarn. Oops. I guess I’m failing . Uh, yeah. Failing pretty badly. Oh, sure, it was all for gifts, one of which was sort of requested, but still. Still. Anyhow, here’s yesterday’s yarn haul (I apologize for any off colors; it’s a grey rainy day today).
As you can see, I’ve already knit up some of it. The orange scarf is for the Things’ pal Christine, who is having a birthday party on Saturday. I asked her mom on Sunday for her favorite color, and it was orange. Knowing that I didn’t have any orange yarn at home, I had to hit the LYS. Yes, it’s got eyelashy stuff, but she’s turning 10; she’ll like it. It’s a Gedifra 100% nylon microfiber that I found in the sale basket. Yeah, it’s a totally non-natural fiber, but it’s SOOOOO soft, roll-arond-in-it-naked-soft. The Encore is for the border on the aforementioned square baby blanket. The Bambino Ull is for another baby blanket.
Note to Self: If you don’t see a particular yarn listed on the price chart at the LYS, ask the owner what the price is! You turned down some other yarn for this one, but this one turned out to be more expensive!
This scarf brings the 2007 F.O. count up to…(drumroll, please)…45. I think that’s pretty good, especially considering how behind I am (need to do the black & grey sweater, Shannon’s waaaaaay overdue and already paid for wristers, Auntie’s Sparticle, finish the aforementioned blanket, do the brown blanket by the 14th, do something else by the 21st, do something in purple for Thing Two’s pal Ainsley by the 7th, etc., etc.).
