Now Playing: REO Speedwagon "Take It On The Run"
Forgive me bloggers, for I have sinned.
I took a trip over to Webs today, to talk to them about the Bobbin Trees, but Kathy wasn't there. So I looked around and found that the Classic Elite Premiere yarn was on sale, as it is being discontinued from their stock. I've been lusting after this yarn for a couple of months now, when I first saw it knitted up on a CE sweater. It is a Tencel/Cotton blend. I was able to find 9 skeins in a dark peachy/pink color (not many skeins left in any color, so I felt fortunate). I'm now $38 poorer, but I have something I can work on that isn't wool. And it feels so nice!
And to make matters worse, this morning, while cruising the blogs, Bonne Marie of Chicknits mentions how it's really time to knit with cotton, and her Ribby Cardi is perfect in a yarn called Samoa found at Supercrafty. So I check out the link on her site, find a beautiful light powder pink color in this cotton/acrylic yarn, and I had to order that. Who wants to knit with wool when it's getting up to 70 degrees outside? Not me.
Justification? Nope. Shear joy in buying yarn and planning projects? You bet! I'm a lemming. What can I say? :-)
