I surprised myself this weekend with the sudden desire to buy yarn. I had planned to make a bag for my mom for Mother’s Day, but I had a sudden urge to make her a pineapple shawl on Saturday afternoon. I looked through my stash, but I didn’t have enough of any light weight yarn in a color that would suit her. I decided to break my month’s old yarn diet and head to Knitty City on Sunday afternoon.
I’ve never used madelinetosh yarn before, but it seemed suitably fancy for a Mother’s Day gift. I only had two skeins wound, since I’m not sure I’ll need the third. But with such a short project deadline, I have to be sure about supplies!
What’s that little bag inside the bag, you ask?
I’m feeling good about this combination. Now let’s just hope the shawl can come together in seven nights!
