Tomorrow is my local Knitter's Frolic, where you can shop at every LYS for miles all under one (architecturally stupendous) roof and take classes too.
Last year, I took classes in spinning and pattern-making, and I bought a lot of yarn - bliss! but this year I am booked solid with driving practise and also, I have rather a lot of yarn, so I was thinking of not going.
But... it's the Frolic.
And I realized there are a few things I need after all, like
buttons for the baby surprise jacket
Soak to accompany said jacket
buttons for the Carrot cardi
a big show button for Something Else
some more yarn for the Carrot cardi.
Yep, it looks like I might not have bought quite enough, especially if I want to make it a bit longer through the body (probably.) Naturally my chances of getting the same dye lot are nil - I'll be lucky to get the same colour - but the cardi has cuffs and a button band and a shawl that could all be knit in a different dye lot without too much ruination, don't you think? And I could extend the body with the same yarn.
And maybe I won't need to use the extra yarn on the cardi at all, and I can knit it up with a second yarn into a matching scarf and hat set, for those late fall days when I really can't face my winter coat.
Ha! Poised to Frolic, that's me.
