(As The Count from Sesame Street would say.)
One Mad Weave sock sitting on one inch of Flair! My one inch of Flair has actually become five inches since I took this picture yesterday afternoon. This yarn is so yummy and I love this sweater so much, I am wishing I'd bought enough Blue Sky to make a second one in a bright color. I also think I may need an extra skein for this sweater - which I declare will be an exception to the Yarn Fast if it becomes necessary. I browsed last night looking for the best price I could find on the Blue Sky cotton, and it comes down to Webs having the best price when you order the quantity for a sweater (with discount - $7.50). Kpixie had it for $8.50, being the second least expensive place.
80 days people, and I am so proud. I STAYED AWAY from the Loopy Ewe yesterday when she did her "Sneak Up" of new yarns. I looked at the end of the day after ALL of the Yarn Pirate was already gone. For a while, us knitters tipped over the Ewe - the site crashed just a little bit under the weight of all the shoppers.
Also? Wouldn't this be the PERFECT yarn for April/May Project Spectrum? This is some hand-dyed from the Yarn Nerd. Just askin', 'cause you know I'm not shopping, right? Eighty days left - I have finished 11% of my sentence.
