I caved.

I had to buy it. I had so much fun making my first baby sweater. Then I saw this at my LYS and I couldn't help myself. The photo doesn't do the color justice. It's not dark blue, its more jewel-toned. Like that blue night sky in winter, when it gets dark too early but that electric blue hangs around for an hour and the world seems rather magical. All I needed was one skein to make the sweater. That's not so bad, right?

I even like the strange arrow shaped pooling.

I have absolutely no desire to take up knitting, but I must say I am enjoying immensely the voyeurism/vicarious experience, without the commitment (or the accomplishments for that matter). Keep up the blog!
