Well, um, all of last week, as a matter of fact.
I blame it totally and completely on blogs. Blogs that show beautiful sock yarn. That I must have. Or at least try. Even though I think the price of some sock yarns has reached a pretty crazy level, I can't stop myself from getting some more. Just to try it. Honestly.
And then...I went to the LYS (The Knit Shop) to pick up some putty Cotton Fleece so I could make a striped sweater with the rest of the Rue Cotton fleece in the stash. And in the back room was this dusty blue cotton fleece...seconds...at a nice price (Tim asked what does that mean, seconds? I think it will probably have lots of knots in it. C'est la vie).
In real knitting news...I finished the sleeves for the shrug that matches the billious green tank, now allI need to do is sew it up. There isn't that much to it, but it is sort of fun and will be nice for those chilly Oregon mornings that turn into warm Oregon afternoons. I cast on for a 'felted balloon bag' as a mindless project. Not sure what will be next on the 'must knit' list!
