Decide what you are doing before purchasing yarn!

So, you would think that I would have learned this lesson by now.... having spent our last get together tearing out one project, I confidently moved onto my next great idea. I found last night that I was not going to have enough yarn to really do the bag right, so I was looking through my stash, hopeful to find something that would coordinate with what I just spent a lot of money on. Well, I started this morning to try to make it work guessed it, it just wasn't cutting it. Instead of going forward with something that I didn't love, with expensive yarn, no less, I decided to tear it out AGAIN!!! Well, I didn't tear it all the way out, just 3/4's of the way. I needed to pick one kid up at the pool by 11:30- it was now 10:30 and I had not yet showered. I was determined to get more yarn. I did not want to think about going through the weekend when I finally had some time to relax, and not have the yarn I wanted!! I made it up to Davidson by 11:08 (I did shower, by the way). I willed an open parking spot right in front of the shop, and as I was waiting at the stop light, my parking spot opened up (actually two spots opened up at once, so I felt secure knowing I could fit easily!). I willed the yarn and color be available, and it was- I only needed one more skein, but there were two left. I made it to the pool at 11:35. I now am happy and free to carry on with my day. Love, Susan P.S. The Noro is beautiful yarn, but it is not variegated like you might think- the colors are very in and out, no rhyme or reason to it, but it really is beautiful.

Thanks Susan for posting my picture and my blog. I can blog now! I think. I followed your advice and it worked.
I can't wait to see your next project finished!
I started the bag with pocket(again)
This time I'm making it with 100% wool!
