Knit Knit Knit -

If you feel you want tooooo ooooooo oooooooo! Knit Knit Knit if you feel you caaaaaaaaaaaaaan! Ah ah! 

Oh hello! Don't mind me! Just singing on my way past as I pack the children off to school (which they have decided is Stupid! With a Capital S! But they are giving it a good go anyway!) And as we are off for a long round car trip today and I don't have time to show you all those promised cowls right now, I thought I would show you what I got up to yesterday. Well part of it anyway. I did make another cowl too. ;-) 

Yes I casted on yet another sweater for myself! I know, it was not on the list at all BUT (Neither was the yarn my friends!) I just happened to be out looking for some fabric when the lovely Spotlight ladies announced that ALL the reduced yarn was going for $1 a ball for the next 5 minutes only! Who could resist such a delectable offer???? Not me! Thats for sure. 

Amongst the huge bag of yarn that made it home with me was 13 balls of Patons Jet in this flecky looking blue and green. I as not quite sure how it would look knitted up but it was ONLY $1 instead of nearly $7 a ball and I have wanted to try it for ages as I have a pattern book which I also bought at a sale a long time ago. Anyway's I like it! Yes I do! I was rather pleasantly surprised to learn that it is 70% Alpaca and 30% wool. And here I was all this time thinking it would be an acrylic blend of some kind! Nah Ah! So even more of a BARGAIN don't you think? 

It is extremely lovely to knit and I am looking forward to wearing it it winter. 

Have a beautiful day everyone! I must run! Child whinging at me for some pencils! Love and Light! 

Hugs and smoochies xoxoxox


  1. $1 a ball? Wowzers! What a steal!
    It's very earthy and in tune w/Mother Nature.

  2. Awesome. I love deals like that and the yarn is pretty.

  3. I started a knitted project this week with yarn that I got for $1 a ball also. Mine is acrilic. :)
