It's not my fault...

I bought more yarn, not just yarn, but lace weight yarn. I didn't mean to to it, it really wasn't my plan. It can't possibly be my fault. The yarn was safely in Lexington, I was safely in Boston. I left Wild and Woolly on Wednesday without buying it, so clearly I was being good. Then it began, the yarn started talking to me, calling me, asking me why I left it in the store. After all, it is merino, and I have never used lace weight merino before. On top of that, didn't I just buy a book with lace patterns? Isn't there at least one I would like to start immediately? Isn't it a wonderful bargain, 1,350 yards for only $14.50, what could be a better bargain?

Then, to top it all off, K needed Rowan 34, and Wild and Woolly had it. K couldn't find Rowan 34 in San Diego, and I owed her some money for wonderful bargains she found for me (a new (to me) knitting bag, and lantern moon straights). Clearly I had to go back to Wild and Woolly, and while I was there...

By the way, that is my new bag my yarn is a hanging out on. Oh, also the yarn isn't quite a blue as it looks, in this picture, it is more tealish, and tealish isn't blue, is it?

It is such pretty yarn, and with the amazing new book, you NEED something to start one of the patterns with! Tealish is only a kinda-sorta maybe blue, so you are moving away from your blue spree :) It looks like a pretty color though!
