Wendy, forgive me for I have sinned . . .
New Yarn. I broke down and bought New Yarn. Please forgive me, Wendy of Knit-from-your-stash. I just couldn't resist.
This is what happens when you listen to those happy podcasters over at Ready, Set, Knit!. You end up getting sucked into the Anniversary Sale products at Webs. That's right, not only did I sin, I did it with America's Yarn Store.
I have had a copy of "The Best of Lopi" pattern book for, like, forever, and I pull it out to read about every two weeks. With Lopi yarn on sale at Webs, what can I say? It was late, I was tired, he was so good looking. And, now, about one week later, I get a little reminder of my late night fling at Webs. Enough yarn for two sweaters at barely $70.
You know what I have been researching today? Wetsuits. Triathlon wetsuits for swimming in the freakishly cold lakes of Minnesota 2007. It's so cold here the ice is coming BACK IN on Lake Minnetonka. It is also snowing. Has been all day. Gaack.
I am swimming in the Manitou Sprint Triathlon on June 10 and if I am going to get any open water time in, it means a wetsuit.
Why can't I knit one?
