Stitch DC is having a sale this weekend. To paraphrase my grandfather: I *need* more yarn like I *need* a hole in my head.
Not that it’s going to stop me, mind you. But I’m trying to form a plan of attack.
I’m taking my mom with me, so she can pick out a color for her soopersecrit Giftmas present. (Which I’ll need to start knitting ASAP if I want to finish in December…) I was thinking of guiding her towards Mission Falls 1824 wool, but my calculations tell me I’d need 24 balls of yarn for it. Even at 15% off, do I love her that much? I’d need 22 balls of Rowan CashSoft, and 10 balls of something with 220 yards (Shelridge Farms?)
I’d like to make Serrano – maybe in Aurora 4? (I’d need 9 balls).
There’s katieknits’ cashcotton sweater I continue to be in lust with. I saw some Elesabeth Lavold Angora the other day that was just dreamy. I had been thinking of doing it in Elann’s Highland Silk ($4/ball! $4!) so the Elann would be cheaper no matter what I bought at Stitch DC (which, well, almost always true).
