So over on Ravelry in our St. Cloud Knitters Group, they have been talking about the sales over at Crafts Direct and they mentioned the amazing sale on Cascade 220. I resisted for awhile, I really tried. I've been trying to knit up some stash yarn for awhile. I need to use some of my great stuff up before buying more. But then something happened...
Knit night happened. One of the lovely ladies in our group (Hi Jenna!) said she was going to knit a February Lady Sweater from her purchase of this wonderful yarn. Now, I should mention that I've been looking for the perfect yarn to knit this pattern for awhile. Pretty much since I first heard about the pattern. It suggests that you use a shaded solid and I've been looking for the perfect thing that wasn't too expensive. Still, I resisted though. But when I saw her lovely sweater on the needles at knit night, something snapped.
I ran over to Crafts Direct on the Friday before our camping trip. I actually cast on this baby in front of the campfire on Saturday.
I have to say it's been a very fun knit and very fast as well. I'm so excited to have a beautiful sweater before it gets cold again! Apparently, I'm a sheep. At least I didn't get the same color.
