I bought myself some yarn on Tuesday. So, I lasted six days into the new year. I was shopping for yarn for an order, and at a little yarn store. There was a great ball of baby yarn in the sale bin! Then I realized I didn't have any cash and didn't want to put $5 on debit at a small store. I didn't want to walk out either. Then I found the cubby with some Patons "Divine". I love this yarn. I knew I had some of the other colours but that I was pretty much out of the ivory. The other yarn is Cascade Yarns "Pinwheel", in blues. A white and striping blues, twirl. So, I got three balls of ivory. $21.19, 500gr.
Yarn In: 500gr
Yarn Out: 200gr
Balance: 300gr more BOUGHT than used
Costs: $21.19/8 days = $2.65/day
So, I'll have to go without buying until about Jan 15 to get it back down to the $1.41/day range. And I'm still looking for yarn for that order. I have some, but just don't think it's quality enough. But trying to find the right colour, and the right gauge (so I don't have to mess with the pattern), AND be very soft....difficult!!! Especially since the pattern calls for Red Heart which is 17st/inch and a fairly stiff yarn, and most of the really nice yarns use 18st/4" as a standard gauge, and the soft ones might still feel too wimpy if he's looking for a thick hat.
