I promise, I was only going to take my mother to Len's Mill store in Port Dover so she could buy some sock yarn. I was thinking I'll just pick up two balls of pink for gift socks, and what do you know, there was a sale. Looks like they were clearing out for new stock coming. It was marked down to $1.80 a ball. That little voice in my head was saying "you have enough sock yarn", the other voice whispering in my ear was saying "your not going to find that price again" "buy it, buy it". So what do you do? There's your mother grabbing everything on the shelf, and your standing there arguing with yourself. YES! NO! YES! NO!
So as you guessed I broke down. Gave into my compulsion. If anything they'll make great inexpensive gift socks for Christmas.
On another note, as Samantha noticed I finished the Seamless Yoked Baby sweater. And a pair of booties to match. The pattern for the booties was simple enough, that I could slip the pattern from the sweater into them.
Yarn: Sirdar Snuggly Baby Care DK
40% cotton, 60% acrylic,
2- 50g ball
Now I have to start my swatch for the Knitting Guild homework for Tuesday night and decide which other baby sweater to do next, and maybe work on my Opal socks.
