Sale yarn is so appealing. All that fiber! At 30% off! What!?! But really folks, take a step back and evaluate that yarn. Is it something you would really buy if it wasn't on sale? I say this because I love me a good sale and it has come to bite me in the ass.
Behold, the ugliest socks ever. Provided to you by sale yarn from my local fiber festival.
I'm not linking the dyer because I don't want you to think they don't have great yarn. They do, they really do, but this one just did not knit up well. I tried other patterns, different stitches, any thing to make these look better and they are just as ugly.
But they make me laugh! They are so ugly I just can't wait to wear them and laugh at how ugly they are! I just need to cast on the second one and giggle while I do.
So just remember people, do you really want that sale or is it just a great bargain?
Also on today's agenda, the first book club meeting at my yarn shop! I just finished The Friday Night Knitting Club for the second time and I'm excited to discuss with the ladies. Joining Ginny and Frontier Dreams for their make "Alongs" this week.
