I really blew the yarn budget this week. Not only did I just order several skeins from KnitPicks.com, but yesterday after stumbling upon Berroco's Ditto pattern, at 6pm sharp, I busted a move to my LYS in Greenpoint (right before they closed) and purchased Berroco Ultra Alpaca in 6290! There isn't an exact color name, but I'm smitten. It's kind of a faint heather periwinkle.
Finally! A cardigan I want to knit!
Another thing that amazes me, is that I didn't mind COing 210 sts onto US 3 needles! Normally this would intimidate me. But I took Kelly Petkun's advice from one of her KnitPicks Podcasts and separated every 30 sts with a marker. I'll definitely be using this little trick a lot more!
