I'm in Trouble

I don't know what made me go on Webs - perhaps I was looking for yarn to make the Monday Morning Cardigan. However, I found Classic Elite Inca Marl was on sale for $4.99 a skein and I remembered this wonderful coat (Rav link) that Leslie, A Friend to Knit With, had made.

I was knitting with Jennifer today and told her about what I was thinking of and she confirmed what I thought - I need to make this. Don't worry, Jennifer, I'm not saying you told me to buy this...you thankfully confirmed my suspicions that I just had to make this.

So, this afternoon I ordered the yarn in Adriatic - 17 skeins. Not a cheap effort but a lot more affordable than had it been full price. I can't wait for it to arrive.

I know you are saying "wait a minute isn't she knitting Annikki which is also a coat?" Well, yes, but this is a different coat! I'm also thinking that as cold as we keep our house in the winter these will be well used...yeah, right Estella, justify this one as best you can.

Oh this is going to be stunning on you. And, you'll be the envy of all the Stepford Wives when you step out wearing it this fall.

Great seeing you and thanks for all your help.
