Skein One

Cost of Yarn: $136 (add cost of interchangeable circular needle – just one, I have control)

Location: Mosaic Yarn Store in Des Plaines

The pattern: Klimt, by Daniela Johannsenova in Verena Knitting Magazine Fall 2010

The Yarn: Noro Silk Garden Sock and Blue Heron Yarns

Funniest part: I told Odin I was going to the yarn store, and his response was “You’re going to the yarn store BEFORE you go grocery shopping?  You have less to lose the other way around!”

Most Frustrating: Deciding the perfect set of colors

The Child: Happily occupied herself collecting the little plastic snowflakes in the store and redistributing them where she saw fit.

My level of sobriety: considering I haven’t yet started, pretty darn good.  Had one bagel with water for fortification, and then I’m going grocery shopping (yes, I do have cash left over – I’m thrifty!)

So now, the question is this:

To swatch, or not to swatch?
