I was weak yesterday

You see, my LYS had this sale …  I guess you can tell where this is going? Yeah, I bought a bunch of new yarn.

I have this idea for a summer shirt that I haven’t quite figured out yet. I’m thinking something tabard with a fake undershirt. I was poring over sketch and gauge and construction last night when the tiger, always helpful,  remarked: “Don’t think too hard; I think I can see steam coming out your ears.” Right.

I cast on at some point, ripped back out, cast on again, rinse and repeat. I think I have a starting point now, but I had to go down a couple of needle sizes from the one recommended on the ball band, so now I have no clue, if I have enough yarn. We’ll see, I guess. I’ll try to knit up the back fast, so I can better determine how far what I have will get me, and maybe still have a chance to get the same dye lot. Of course, if I have to buy more it won’t be on sale anymore. *headdesk*
