March Madness

This year "March Madness" has extra meaning for me. Usually it just means it's tournament time for college basketball. (And my UNC Tarheels just won the ACC Tournament yesterday to clinch the #1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, thank you very much!!) But what you might care about is the March Madness Sale at The Yarn and Fiber Company, where they have a different line of yarn on sale every day this month! And they have free shipping! They switch their sale items every day at noon so check it out! I've been pretty good so far, but if they get to the Brown Sheep Company, all bets are off.

All of my fussing over my entrelac bag pattern last week kind of got me into the mood to do another bag. It's been months since I made a bag or felted anything, and well, I've been looking for an excuse to order some new Noro Kureyon. I'd thought about designing something new, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to test my pattern again, just to make sure it didn't have some stupid mistake in it that's going to make some poor knitter out there hate me for wasting hours of her (or his) time! Paranoid Much?That's Noro Kureyon in color #40 and Lamb's Pride in Clematis so far. I'll just figure out the other colors as I go.

While this is going to be a fun knit, I'm really itching to start on a Springier project. I've got a couple of cardigans in mind, just need to get a hold of some cotton or cotton blend yarn.

I just have to show my support for a fellow crafter/March Madness gal, even though I am rooting for the Spartans...

You speak so highly of those two yarns - especially Lamb's Pride - that I'm gonna have to try working with some! (Maybe once I've caught up with my sewing?)
