I've been very bad!
Yes, it's true! I was a bad girl yesterday. All I wanted to do was go see if the yarn store carried Lamb Pride Bulky and price it for future purchase. I went ot the LYS and saw that they had it and how expensive it was. Then I wandered over to the sock yarn shelves and looked... and then I left I swear! On the walk back to my car I passed another yarn store. I know isn't it amazing that we have two yarn stores two blocks from each other. I usually don't go into this one since it is like a stash closet and you can't really find or see anything! Well they have a ton of sock yarn! So many different companys and then I asked if they carried the Bulky yarn. They did! The yarn is actually
I did mention it was all on sale right? Would you look at those colors!
The reason I was in search of the Bulky Pride was to make this:
I have been looking at this sweater in the SnB Nation for about a year and really want to make it for myself. So over the summer I will whip this up so I can wear it next fall and winter. I am very excited and I changed the color scheme a bit. Pinks and reds are not my favorites, so I went with purples and greys. I know what you are thinking, this yarn is only for the Fair Ilse part, but not the actually sweater... well yes, that is true my friends. I was planning to buy two cones off ebay, but I realized with the sale, no tax on yarn (this is new in NY), and no shipping costs... well I went out today and buy these:
Am I ill? I am not a shopping by any means, but I think I could buy yarn 100% off the time. I just reorganized my stash room, not to use it! I also grabbed this little book at Borders with some gift certificates I had. It looks like it has some fun little projects in it too.
