I used an exception
Actually, I swapped and used an exception ;-)
Im not going to visit my aunt this summer as it turns out, so I decided to join some friends in a trek to Flying FIngers yesterday. The store is moving from Irvington, NY to Tarrytown, NY and they were having an in store only 50% off fiber sale.
I was rather restrained, especially when compared to my travel companions ;-)
And I already have them earmarked for a project, which is now #4 on my list.
I'm also almost done with another "from stash" project! This is a 1 piece baby cardi (the only seaming is the hood!) made from (so far) 2 balls of Cotton tots. I think I will need to break into a 3rd ball to finish the 2nd sleeve, but we'll see. If I do, I will probably use that and the full ball I still have to make another, 1 size smaller, as I have plenty of babies due to friends, and this is such a nice easy knit. (and yes, most of my knitting this month is abiding by Project Spectrum colors)
As wavybrains has pointed out, I am certainly learning more about my choices, amungst other tings. I have absolutely discovered a love of knitting baby stuff, but I have also discovered cotton is not as awful to knit with as some tried to convince me. I find that I am a combo knitter - Process AND Project. I love knitting just to knit, but I also enjoy completing a project!
I did also receive my July STR shipment, but I joined the club before I joined SOS, and it was all prepaid so it doesn't count. Details of all this stuff on my blog
