Thanks for all the compliments on the manos cardi! It’s a bit light to wear right now, but once the weather warms up I’m sure I’ll wear it lots.

I went to Elann and, for fun, put a whole bunch of stuff into my shopping cart that I would buy if I had money – this was all stuff that I could come up with projects for. Total – a little over $200 CDN. Yikes. Then I whittled away at the list, deleting a whole bunch of Sonata cotton (just went up today) and reducing the number of balls of yarn. I’ve made it down to three yarns:

Berroco Pronto Print – 15 balls
For either the “Cashmere Pullover” from Weekend Knitting, or a Corrugated asymmetrical sweater, both by Teva Durham.

Elann Esprit – 5 balls
For a sweet, summery top based on “stripes go round” from last summer’s IK.

Schachenmayr Aurora Colour – 7 balls
For either a summer top or another Clapotis.

Total: still over $100 CDN. Hrmph. I’m definitely getting the Esprit soon, but the others I’m sure about…maybe if I can destash?
