Yarny Shopping

I've been buying a lot of yarn (and yarn related items) lately. I just got a giant box of yarn from Smiley's last week--which included tons of Red Heart Bright and Lofty for $0.77 a skein (love it for kid's blankets) and some Jaeger Roma (currently becoming a tank--more about that later) plus some. And yesterday I got my very first order from Webs and my stuff from the Ravelry Mini-Mart.

Webs is having their annual sale right now so I decided to get some yarn for sweaters since I really want to start making wearables. I also bought a few skeins of yarns I want to try and some cotton/tencel for another tank. I'm super happy with my yarns--the pea green is going to be a cardigan and the burgundy a v-neck pullover (unless I change my mind before I make them, that is).

My pint glasses from Ravelry are wonderful--Chris and I used them last night. I thought I would fortify myself by having a beer in the "frogged" glass before I had to frog a couple of inches of my new tank. (I also ordered a "disagree" shirt, but received a "love" shirt instead, so I will show you that once I get it worked out.)

My newest project is Interweave Knit's Summertime Tunic in sage Jaeger Roma. I love this yarn even though I'm not madly in love with the color. I'm just sorry I didn't order more.

My knitting is still way more uneven than I'd like, but I'm trying to get past that and just make something already. I hope I will succeed and actually finish it, but you can never be sure at what point my perfectionism will take over and I will be forced to frog. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Oh, I DO like that sage color, and your knitting looks super even to me.
