Trip to the LYS was a no go....
I picked that up, thinking of the shawl my mother would like me to make.
I also picked up some cotton yarn, and some fun fur to match the sweater I'm working on for my oldest daughter.
Can you tell I have two girls? LOL I'm hoping to create matching sweaters out of that. LOL If not, it'll fluff up my yarn stash.
I haven't made any progress on my sampler afghan. I'd post a picture, but I had to tink as much as I'd knit, so it's hard to tell I went anywhere! That's what I get for trying to do cables around a 3 year old!
Even though I bought the new stitches book, my mother decides she wants her shawl done in the seed stitch! Argh! LOL But, considering the yarn she picked out, it's probably a good thing. She chose Lion Brand Jiffy in El Paso. I'll have to steer her in a lighter weight and color next time. So, I've cast on and gotten about 4 rows done:
So, I am now in pursuit of recommendations for budget yarn. I'll let you know if I get any good recommendations or sources. Thanks for reading!
