Remember that I spent an obscene amount of money for a single knitting pattern?
Well that is only the begining my dear friends.
The pattern calls for 2,133 yards of sport weight yarn. Lovely. Off I went to Knit Picks for the best prices on merino wool.
Are you sitting down for this? And may I ask you to please move away from the desk least you hit your head when you faint from sticker shock.
Cobblestone Heather in Stroll Sport 17 balls = $62.73 Ouch! Factor in the price of the pattern and the total is $97.73! I should not have done that.
I love, love the color but I'm afraid I'll look like Navy issue blanket considering the construction.
So I lighten up drasticly with Dove Heather Swish DK. 19 balls = $75.81! And for added excitement let's add in the price of the pattern again. Drumroll please- $110.81!
Naturally, the Dove color will meld with more things in my wardrobe. I should have seen that coming.
It's a good thing that I have a birthday coming up 'cause Stonewall just bought my present.
Do you think I should tell him or wait till later?
