I got in so late and was so bushed, I decided to wait to post.
I have finally decided to make Ridderspore
for myself. I've never made a sweater specifically for me, so this is a first. I also wanted somethng for summer (since they are colder in Norway than what I am use to) and something for indoors. So I decided to try this pattern with cotton.
After my hubby got home from work, off we went into town and walked through Haraldsgata (Haralds street, which is a walking street. No cars allowed). It was a nice day and on thursdays the shops are opened longer. The LYS there usually closes at 4:30 (which barely gives me time to get there if I'm in the mood) on thursdays they close at 7pm. Yay!
I went and put some of the yarn to the side and brought a few balls home. I'm not sure how it is in the US (as I always got yarn from Wal*mart since I had even less money to work with when I lived in Cali), but at my LYS you can collect all the yarn you would need and they will hold it for you in a bag so you don't have to buy it all in one go and you don't have to worry about dyelots and all. Kinda like layway I guess. Which is good for money strapped knitters like myself. :)
