And then Spotlight had a sale on it's cheap sock yarn (why do they call it "Noir" when it clearly isn't? Oh well). I had this insane idea to make a cardigan out of it (I know, 4ply, 40" chest - obviously I'm mad) but which colour, & how many balls would I need? So I did what I always do & bought by the kilo - 10 balls. I'll probably realisticly only need about half that, but I ran out of yarn when I was a newbie knitter & developed a pathalogical fear of running out of yarn. (I've been asked how much yarn to buy if you want to make a hat & had to bite my tongue to stop myself saying "probably about 100g of 8ply, but you'd better buy a kilo just to be safe)
And then there was the colour choice. Do I go for the go with just about everything grey or the earthy brown? Hmmm .... The purple's not bad either ...
