Picking Patterns for Spring Fling
The biggest part of getting ready for Spring Fling for me is not about what clothes to take, but what patterns to take so I can shop for yarn at the Loopy Ewe.
I have learned over the years that shopping with a pattern/project in mind is the best plan for me. Not only does it cut down on having yarn without a purpose but it keeps me honest about what I want to knit. This is not to say that I do not have some stray skeins that I bought for something but have since either forgotten what that is or have repurposed it for another project.
So, for the next week or so, I will be stalking my bookshelf and reviewing my many favorites on Ravelry to come up with a plan of what I am interested in knitting for the rest of the year. I will also be updating my wishlist at Loopy with yarns that I want to fondle in regards to the chosen patterns. I do not mind buying yarn online but only after I have seen it and touched it, live and in person.
I hope everyone has fun plans for their Spring~!
