Easy? No thank you!


I received an order for a custom baby sweater earlier this week, hooray! I started it on Monday afternoon with some yarn that I had in my stash, she wanted gray or blue, and I had a perfect gray/blue! I love it when that happens! By Tuesday night I had completed the back, two fronts, one sleeve and three quarters of the second sleeve. As I got up to wash dishes, I swear that I looked down and thought, "phew, I am going to have just enough yarn." When I came back and continued knitting, two rows in,
I reached the end of my yarn. I was baffled. Where did the yarn go? After looking around and not seeing it, I got on myhands and knees, I moved the furniture, I dug through three baskets of yarn~nothing. Maddening, right? But no big deal, I will go to Joann's and pick up another skein and finish it up. After spending some time in classroom on Wednesday, I popped over to Joann's and headed to their large display of this particular brand. Things were looking up. I scanned and scanned and scanned for my particular blue/gray. There was green/blue, there was royal blue, and there was gray, but there was no gray/blue. Ok, I'll head to Michael'sit's just around the corner. Nope, none there either. So in the middle of the yarn aisle, I sighed an agit
ated sigh and began to accept that I was going to have to start over. I picked out one skein of a different yarn and was on my way. You read that right? I picked up one skein. Because I clearly did not learn my lesson. I got through the back, two fronts, and one and three quarters of both sleeves and I ran out of yarn. I know, I know~serves me right. After a long day at school today, I headed back to Michael's to grab another skein. Except that this weekend, The Blue Angels are performing so traffic was a bear, just in case I wasn't irritated enough! An hour later, after grabbing the much needed skein, I came outside and saw this:

In exciting news, I want to congratulate Vicki on winning my organic bow-tie scarf. I can't tell you how much I loved reading all of your comments. So many great things to be thankful for that help to beat the back to school blues!
