Yarn - Stalked

So I bought Wool of the Andes from Knitpicks in Sapphire Heather for my husband's cardigan-to-be. I knit Rogue with this last winter and it seemed like a nice enough yarn. I hope the blue isn't to bright. If it is I'll have to skein and over-dye the yarn first. Which is really no big deal. Now I have to find a pattern.

Since I was ordering yarn I also bought a few skeins for socks. Some solid colors for the cabley patterns that came out this fall. Knitty had one, Knitting Universe had one and I found one on Eunny's blog. I bought yarn for the pair in Knitting Universe (I'm not really sure that is the right title.)

I have 1 1/2 panels left on the modular sweater body. I will be cutting the yarn yardage VERY close. I'm obsessed about this at the moment.

The Menard's baskets are great. I'm going to go and buy some more. Maybe tonight. The middle sized one holds a sweater. I have been grabbing this and knitting in the car while I wait for my daughter's bus to pick her up. I am going to grab a couple of the little ones. I think they will hold pairs of socks. Maybe I can convince myself that I can't cast on anything new until I open up a basket? The best part though is that I can leave the ball in the basket and it doesn't go rolling across the floor like it does if it is on my lap; and the bag top doesn't fall over the yarn and keep it from unrolling freely. The yarn also doesn't get tangled around the bag handle. The little annoyances.

OOOooo..
That yarn is super pretty. Trust me, you'll love it. I have the color card and I wish I would have bought that color. :)

That I will love it isn't really the question. The yarn is for Mike, will he like it?

How was your opening?

I'm so excited for you. It's too bad your hours make it hard for you to visit. You should be closed Monday - for visiting your friends. Or just me.
