I've been really bad lately. Terrible even. I have "fallen off the sheep." But I think it's a worthwhile fall...
The first trip was in Bozeman - I'm calling it souvenir yarn.
Cascade 128 Superwash - Color 1971
100% Superwash Merino wool
Due to the color, this will definitely end up as a new hat for me or a loved one for Husky games. Something made with good yarn like this should be loved.
Berroco Touché, Color Cocoa
50% cotton, 50% Modal
No plans for this guy. Maybe mittens for Peanut? Got to get on that one soon!
My next "oops" was caused by a coupon and a sale, at the same time. I have been thinking about knitting some hats and koozies to sell at tailgates for a year or two. I haven't gotten around to it because I couldn't decide on pricing. Also, I've been distracted by other projects. But after a guy named Bjorn sold us a sweet Husky sweater, I caught the bug again and decided to make it happen. I'm sure I could sell a handful to just the tailgates I frequent. So when there was a sale and a coupon for 30% off your entire purchase, I fell off the sheep again.
Lion Brand, Vanna's Choice - Linen, Purple, Black, Mustard
Paton's Classic Wool - Wisteria
So I've added quite a bit of yarn to my stash, but to give me a little credit I've already started a hat to sell! Started during a Husky basketball game. Shouldn't take too much longer to knit.
And, to give myself even MORE credit, I have lots of patterns IDed/designed to use the yarn. I might have to decree March Madness Koozie Madness and just knit koozies while watching the games.
Know anyone who wants some Husky gear? I'll knit on consignment....
