About a month ago I got the new Knit Picks catalog in the mail. There were two incredibly cute hat and diaper cover kits pictured in it. I mean, look at these:
The piggy one has a curly tail. A curly tail!!!
Anyway, I totally fell in love with the patterns. I go to the site and they only sell them in kits. I just wanted the patterns. So I decided to be a little responsible when it comes to yarn and not buy them.
Then last week after I finished all that garter stitch on the OpArt blanket, that I had recently sold the only thing in the house I could use to block it (our futon – it was in the baby’s room). Oh, and that sucker needs a good blocking. Maybe two.
So I go back to the Knit Picks site to buy some blocking mats. I put them in my cart and the next thing I know I’m paying for the mats and the cow and piggy kit.
The only reasonable explanation is that the curly tail hypnotized me.
