A Yarn Accident
Was it three days of uninterrupted shopping?
-Jeff Melvoin, Northern Exposure
So I, uh, had a little yarn accident. There I was after work, innocently going to the post office to mail the prizes for last week's contest; there I was, getting rid of yarn from the house. And I happened to see on someone's blog that Michael's was having a sale on Paton's Classic Merino. And since I have a list of hats and mittens to knit (Hat's On and Folk Mittens) a mile long, I thought I'd go get some colors.
Oops. Turns out all the yarn was on sale. (My husband isn't reading this, is he?) I picked up some Soy Wool Stripes, since so many people have seemed to enjoy that so much, and a couple of balls of Sugar and Cream cotton. You can never have too much dishcloth cotton lying around. And good basic yarns rarely go on sale. So tell me this - you would have done the same thing, right?
