I just won an eBay auction for with more than enough assorted Noro Kureyon yarn to make this afghan. After shipping each skein is going to cost just over $5.
While I was shopping yesterday, I thought I'd check out the sellers other auctions and I snatched up some of this Katia Mexico. This I got for just over $3.50 a ball. I've never worked with this yarn before but I loved the colors, the price, and the name.
Carl called this morning during one of Caleb's meltdowns. It was so loud and violent that I couldn't talk with him and I told him I'd call him back when it was over. I think he was feeling sorry for me because when I told him about all the money I've spent on yarn in the past two days he didn't seem too concerned. I have been warning him that I wanted to get yarn for Lizard Ridge and it would be a substantial sum so when I told him I got it for over $3 off per skein I think he was rather pleased.
While I'm on the subject of Carl...he's having a good time in France. He's at Mont St. Michel today and is only slightly disappointed in the touristy-ness of it. He gets home on Tuesday night. It will certainly be great to have him back at home! Eva's been super cranky today (Caleb has been his normal self---ticking time bomb) and has a bit of a fever. Thankfully, she's down for a nap at the moment. I'm going to take the rest of this quiet time I have (Caleb's watching Max & Ruby) to lie down. Happy Sunday everyone!
