I know I just said I need to focus on staying on budget… and I will. I just need to unsubscribe from all the mailing lists of my favourite shops….
Case in point:
I said I wasn’t going to start it until fall because it’s definitely more of a cool-weather knit. Which meant I wasn’t going to buy the yarn either… though I had it all picked out.
But then I get a Knitpicks email the other day telling me about the wonderful clearance yarn that won’t be around much longer… I figured it didn’t hurt to look. And I’m so glad I did. The yarn I wanted, in the colour I wanted was going to be gone forever soon!!!! I had no choice…
It’s Biggo in Brass Heather. It’s a Superwash Merino/Nylon blend and OMG it is soooooo soft. It’s even nicer than the Chroma twist!
I chose this colour because of my dresses. In addition to my many, many Fit and Flare dresses… I also have several simple A-line maxi dresses from Old Navy. I usually buy a couple each year because they are super comfy for the days I don’t want to get dresses up. I call them my house dresses, and they get worn a lot in winter.
This is just two of them…. I’ve got also got a navy blue and a gold one, and this yarn will be perfect with all of them!
Now excuse me while I go unsubscribe before my bank account goes into the red….
