So I picked up yarn and needles to cast on for Ried from the latest issue of Knitty. First I have to say for those of you who are single knitters please just be happy that you don't have a husband/partner/boyfriend/girlfriend or whatever complaining about every freaking yarn/knitting purchase you make! Look at that purchase guess how much it cost? guess! UNDER 40 FREAKING DOLLARS!!!!! Am I nuts or is that a great buy? Why then was my husband complaining about this purchase? This is 6 skeins of discontinued fine cotton. All the lady had to say was discontinued and I snatched them up! Then of course there is a cute picture of me and Mr. Jake.
