Cashmere Sale

Ok, so I went to look at all the soft and luscious things at the cashmere sale at Loops today. I was really going to just browse, only buy if it was one hell of a deal and then head home to start cleaning since I am having company tonight. But then I found a really pretty silvery colored Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, so I had to buy enough to make a sweater. I had to, I couldn't help it. And I got some really awesome yarn for a gift, but I can't really post about it now because then it wouldn't be much of a surprise. The sale was a really good deal though and the damage came out really, really low compared to what it could have been. The cashmerino aran is usually a pretty good deal anyway and with 30% off, that really helped. So I think I am going to use it for the wheat-ear cabled yoke sweater. I've been wanting to make it forever. Really forever. I think its been in my queue since I got the magazine it was in.

The Pfiefer Falls hooded scarf is going well. Actually, I ran into a friend at loops so I sat down to knit a while since it was in my purse. I had to take out a few rows from last night but that happens when you let a 4 year old try and help you on a cable project (must get that child his own yarn and needles). I really am most of the way done with the first side though. And I still love the yarn. Really, really love it. :-)

Ok, now for that house cleaning I should have been working on all day.
