Geesh you guys... I've been resisting the booga urge like crazy. I was able to resist since the online pattern was so small. I *could* put it off until I had the time to fudge it to make it bigger since I want it for a POTG bag. Now I have to look for sales on Patons Classic Wool! I can't start anything until after the holidays, so maybe I'll drag my kids out for some post-Christmas sales!

Hands are getting better, so I better get to my work! :XX:

Tigger ~

Lamb's Pride is a brand name....lots of LYS carry. It should be around 6 or 7 a skein. It's really nice to work with.

I got 4 skeins of lion wool (have one blue at home). blue, sage green, rose and winter white. I'll do the main bag in blue I believe with stripes of the other colors. I have to go back tomorrow as they charged me for 5 skeins and they weren't on sale! so they owe me about 6.50. I need to look around some more anyway.
also bought a tool bag by tomorrow's treasure. it will hold my scissors, needle protectors, cables, stitch holders, etc perfectly. Then I can just pull the tool bag to work on whatever project I'm on at the moment.
I got it for 40% off as I used the internet coupon.
I feel so much better than I did this morn. it's an outing like this that makes it all bearable!!!
