I didn't eat them all
At the bakery today...... I took this shot for this blog. I can feel almost guiltess about a cupcake. There were red velvet cupcakes........that is MY choice.
Guess what? I saw a gorgeous shawl today....at a dept store. I had it up to the register, wondering how I would explain it to you all, when the price tag was missing. I took it as a sign. I was crunched for time. Im having some friends who turned 50 already, (i am so jealous) for dinner tonight. I told the guys at the register to just put it aside.
It was dreamy. I could have said I knit it. It was poly/acrylic and it was incredibly soft. I am not ashamed. It was this delicious color way that would have gone with my daily blue jeans.....I think I may have to go back......
Or I may have to knit on on big old needles fast......did I mention it was 25% off?
I just don't have a moment to ponder it really. Sometimes I wait to see if I still want it, and then make a decision.
It was just a garter knit in a big way. With fringe. I normally worry about fringe......
I can buy good yarn for the price of that shawl. I do know this: when I see the perfect sweater at a store or in a catalogue or somewhere, I will buy it.
Besdies it would have broken my sock streak......
I talk more in the comments!
