I received an email from Jill telling me of her Woolie Ewe's Birthday Sale - 35% off everything in the store. So I drove over this morning and I found a few (HA!) little items:
I bought Mason-Dixon Knitting 'cos so many people have knit such cool items from it! The pattern is another Sirdar - #8872 - and the black ribbon yarn is the Ocean for which the sweater is designed. I thought it would be sweet for concerts. And of course, some yummy LL sock yarn in Denim. Like I don't have enough sock yarn .....
So as if that is not bad enough, after I arrive back home the postman rings my bell and delivers a box from KP containing this:
Here we have 3 colors of Essentials sock yarn on the left (what??? MORE sock yarn?), 6 Shine Sport in Orchid for a little tank top, the color card to go with said Shine, 2 packs of pins for blocking and one #3 circ.
But I am trying to be a good girl as well and put my personal UFOs on hold to knit this little blanket for a favorite former student who's baby shower is in 2 weeks:
I bought the (acrylic/ nylon blend) yarn at Hobby Lobby with a 40% discount (see, I am trying to be good). I know the pattern is a bit holey for a baby blanket, but I thought it was pretty. And it came from a Filatura Di Crosa baby pattern book.
Please cross your fingers that I can complete this (and keep my ADD knitting sanity even though I am staying on this one project until completion) by June 16.......
