What can I say, I could not contain my inner Sunnmøring*. There was a sale and I could not help myself.
I was pretty determined 2008 was not going to be as full of socks as 2007 was. I hope to be knitting more big things.
However, this is now going to be on it's way to me real soon and I want to cast on with it as soon as I get my hands on it!

All I can think is Yay! I could not even manage to wait until the yarn was actually here to share it on the blog.
*I realise a lot of my readers may not be familiar with the term Sunnmøring (I now have a blogpatrol installed here and can spy on my own blog;). Who knows, when I type it it may even show up funny on some of your screens. Is Sunnmoering better?
I was born and raised at Sunnmoere, tough I'm not pure bred. Word has it people from my part of the country are careful about their money (some claim greedy), is always up for a good bargain or ways to earn or save money. Place a sunnmoering on a desert island and soon you'll have a thriving community with a furniture factory and a small fleet of fishing boats. Another claim is that we cannot swim, because we can only motion our arms towards ourselves instead of away from us, and drown as a result.
Anyhooo, I just could not pass up this sale. I have been thinking about that China blue for over a week!
My dad can't walk past a sale to save his life, and he's not even born sunnmoering, only lived there for the past 35 years. The force is strong!
