Because I couldn’t stand to wait for my KP order (I mean I only have 2 things on needles right now) I decided today was the day to trade in my yarn and needles that my family got me for things I needed (I did keep some of the yarn) and use my gift card at Jo-Ann’s. I bought several large skeins of Paton’s 100% wool (good for felting projects it says) in a pumpkin, black and camel to make a market tote with and then bought some Moda dea 100% wool in PINK to make a pick booga bag with. I’ve already gotten the bottom of the bag done and started up the sides a few rows. The wool called for a size 8 needle and I’m doing them on 10.5’s I think that I could really go up to an 11 or even a 13 because it is still knitting up fairly tightly (good for the bottom though). I think when I get up a little bit I may change up a size or two. It’s a gorgeous varigated pink and I can’t wait to felt it! I’ll definitely take pics (and I have a cord for my camera now which means I can upload pictures again weee)
I traded in 3 pair of needles for one pair, but the size I really need new ones of (2’s) they don’t carry at Jo-Ann’s, so I’ll have to go to the LYS since I forgot to order them with my KP order. (I’ll have to get dh to give me $10 in cash and hold my checkbook and credit cards hostage!) But I have all this yummy feltable yarn now!
