I had a knitting accident today. I was at the yarn store, there was a sign saying discontinued and everything went a little foggy after that. I ended up with a lot of yarn balls, enough for about ten small baby sweaters. It’s a lovely combination of colors, it looks like ice-cream. And since I know of a lot of babies that will be born this year, I figure it’s good to have som baby sweater friendly yarn around.

Discontinued though, it’s a difficult word and I bet that yarn companies know what effect that word has on us knitters. I haven’t even knit from this yarn before and I still got overly excited. The colors were suddenly so pretty and they really are, even without the word discontinued in mind. I’m sure there will be very lovely sweaters coming from this. Also, the yarn is aran weight so there should be space left in the stash.
