I know I promised a FO for my next post but I just couldn’t wait.
I’m still determined to finish it this weekend so pictures are in the very near future.
Also on Friday, I got a haircut. I love it! Back in February I donated 13 inches of hair to Locks of Love and now I’m in the process of growing it again. Here’s my new haircut and my new haircut wearing my (still un-re-blocked) Witterings hat:
Now onto my REAL news:
I went to my LYS yesterday to pick up some needles for my mom-it’s literally 150 yards from my house. I noticed that her inventory was lower than usual but I thought: maybe she’s just making room for fall. It turns out the woman that owns the store got a new job and the store was bought. It’s still going to be a yarn store (YAY!)
Then it happened I was offered the DEAL OF A LIFETIME: as a good customer to the store I was offered 75% off anything in the store if I spent $500. This means that I would get $2000 worth of yarn for $500. She told me I could come back anytime but the store hours are very limited until the takeover happens. I thought about it for about a minute and then decided to do it.
I know that most non-knitters will/do think I’m crazy but for everyone that is a knitter-you know you’d do the same thing!
Here’s the yarn I bought:
-2 skeins Louet Euroflax Linen tan
-3 skeins Louet Euroflax Linen off white
-9 skeins Reynolds Garden Tweed Navy/Sky Blue/Tan
-16 skeins Reynolds Garden Tweed Red/Off-White/Tan

I also bought two books, she gave me over $175 worth of single patterns and Berroco booklets for free and threw in the needles that I went in for originally.
Remember I said I needed to go on a yarn diet?
