What do you do when you go out searching for THIS and you can only find this:
Settle I guess. I had it in my head that one of the local stores would carry a row counter that has a ring to go on the needle, but I must be wrong. Wanted one to work on my next booga j bag and thought it might be easier to have the row counter as the stitch marker.... I guess I will have to keep track the old fashion way... paper and pencil until I can locate one.
I went to my LYS this afternoon after work. They were having a 20% off all yarn sale. SO I dug through the 50% off bin and came up with three skeins of sock yarn (this will help me with my latest KAL... the leftovers sock KAL) I have been wanting to make my leftovers into some socks now that I have a good stash, but I thought these skeins might come in handy too and at 50% off, who could resist! Plus I bought some blue sock yarn... Invicta extra (scheepjes yarn)... it looked nice and there really wasn't too much of a selection, which is fine for me. I also bought a couple of other skeins, but I held back!
Lately I have been crocheting a few scrap blankets trying to use up my acyrilic stash (in order to donate a few blankets to my local children's group. We have a meeting in two weeks.) I think that stuff multiples! I am down from three to two tubs full. I am making a very slow striped blanket, but I am bored, so I will move al the stash to the couch for the weekend and work on something for my niece... an apple hat. My DH is away in Boston with a friend this weekend, so I don't have to clean up what I take out for a bit.
