A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

A Knitter’s Dilemma

Nothing life-or-death.   It wouldn’t be the first time that I ran out of yarn…after four stores…drove over 100 miles…I gave up finally, out of desperation, and got these two skeins of Sugar’ n Cream before headed over to Textiles A Mano

in order to work on the aran lace pullover for Relief Nursery in Eugene, OR.  So, why does it bother me so?  Normally I wouldn’t really care.  I would laugh or make a silly comment and move on.  I don’t quite understand.  Today, I feel disgusted…having to settle for a contrast color…and not completely pleased with the outcome!  Should I have just bite the bullet and get a skein, through mail order, at suggested retail price with added shipping cost?  Next time, I’ll be smarter…make sure I have at least two skeins on hand before casting on!  Fearless knitting is an admirable thing to aspire to but I will definitely take another lesson learned to heart 😀

On an up note, I love social knitting and tonight was a blast…meeting Liz, Tammie, Jackie, Jo, Mollie, Bonnie, Gwen,  Anson & his mom (funny how I can remember a child’s name and not the mom!)…and plenty more I’ve since forgotten their names.  It was a wonderful evening in Laura’s shop.  I so enjoyed myself!

Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
