When ordering for a project for Eat Sleep Knit I miscalculated how much I needed of the Dream in Color bluefish. So I needed to order another skein. And rather than only order one skein, I found some lovely Madelinetosh ASAP for a Christmas gift cowl. The color is Dachshund. I almost chose Whiskey Barrel. I may have to make two cowls!
That took care of internet yarn shopping. But there is more. Youngest daughter is expecting a baby boy in November. My first night back in the States she calls with a bit of panic in her voice. This new little cherub doesn't have a Christmas Stocking. We have a little family tradition of knitted stockings from my trusty needles. So an emergency visit to the yarn store was in order.
Yarn in this week: 1240 yards
Yarn out this week; 411 yards
Yarn in YTD: 9196 yards
Yarn out YTD: 3638 yards
I have a lot of knitting to do before the end of the year!!!!
