I walked out of a yarn store empty-handed today. That is how cheap I am.
I'm currently on spring break, and I had made plans to go to the Yarn Barn sometime this week on a day all to myself. That just goes to show how much I had been anticipating this excursion. Anyway I get there, and I'm looking around the sock yarns for a future project. But I begin to look at some of the sock books and notice that size 2 or less needles are better for socks, and all I own were size 3. Well, I wasn't about to pay for yarn AND needles -- that would have put me over twenty bucks, and I still hadn't eaten lunch.
So I start looking at all the different types of yarn. It was nice to browse, I must say, but real yarn is expensive. I am too much of a novice with too many unfinished projects to be buying yarn just for the sake of buying yarn. However, I felt more than just a little foolish walking around in the small store for half an hour and not even purchasing anything.
Anyway, I got to thinking; I have this set of four size 3 DPNs and have no idea what I can do with them. What kind of yarn is best for them? What sort of projects can be made with them? I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.
Pax et bonum,
