Too Good To Pass Up

Well, I have broken my pledge to not buy any new yarn until I use up some of the yarn I already have. This was too good to pass up. Four balls of Sirdar Denim Chunky in grey marl, $0.99US, no bids, $10US shipping, on eBay. I bid on it, had one bid against me which took it up to $2.26US. I ended up winning it, so by the time I did the exchange it only cost me $14.28CDN!!! Check out the price per ball -- this is what I would have paid for one ball! I got 4 balls! I have wanted to make this jacket for Logan for awhile now, and guess what! His size requires 4 balls for the hooded version. Perfecto! Can't pass up a deal like that! (And I did also buy three skeins of hand-dyed sock yarn off eBay - haven't gotten it yet - but Sockapalooza socks are destined from one of the skeins. I couldn't make my mind up which to choose, hot pink or hot purple, so I had to get both. Then, of course, there was the gorgeous orangey yarn I had to get for Wyverns...)

I haven't gotten too much done this weekend. I did get one of Darren's mittens finished. I made an extra-long cuff, as he hates snow going up his jacket sleeves. I made the large child's size, so it's just a smidge too big, not enough to worry about. I started the other one, but I only have a few rounds of ribbing done so far. Think I will go take a quick bath and watch the Oscars awards show for a bit. I'll work on the mitten some more. (He picked this color out himself!)

Happy Knitting!
