Happy news! I have finished a knitted item! The first item I have finished since July. Sad, and pathetic. However, today, I knit a whole entire dishcloth!
That's the good news. Now, here's the bad news. My LYS, which is really a fabric store with a GREAT selection of yarn, is going out of business! I went there today, hoping to score some Encore for the little ones' winter hats, and there was NONE on the shelves. NONE! I've loved going to The Fabric Place - it had such a large selection of yarn, many brands that you find in actual yarn shops - Cascade, Malabrigo, Galway, Elisabeth Lovland, etc, etc, AND they send coupons! Or, rather, they sent coupons. Goodbye The Fabric Place. I will miss you!
Okay, so if I can't buy Encore at a discount, what kind of warm, washable yarn can I buy at A.C. Moore to make the little ones' hats? OR, is there a LYS around me that sells Encore and has carts to strap my kids into?
Finally, can someone work out a way for me to have two whole days dedicated to knitting? I feel like I might actually accomplish something besides a dishcloth.
