Happy Local Yarn Shop Day!

What can I say? I couldn’t resist seeing what was happening in my area – quite a few LYS near me did special offers, demonstrations and cake!

I was good though and only bought two balls of wool. I could have walked away with…40 easy, but managed to restrain myself.

The ones I bought are to finish a project on the needles already – a cute jumper for Felix, and as Sods Law dictates, when knitting a pattern for the purpose of stash busting, one will have to buy more of that wool to finish the project, defeating the purpose of having knit it in the first place.

One would have sufficed, but when Engel stated that knowing my luck I would run out right before the second sleeve, well, he jinxed me. If I bought one I would run out. If I bought two I wouldn’t need the second.

So two it is. I’ll make a matching hat, or some arm warmers. Maybe socks too. Oh, a little bag would look adorable. And a toy.

May need another ball…
