O.K. so it being the last few days of my summer vacation has resulted in a second baseball reference, but it is nonetheless appropriate.
Pictured left is the totally unsatisfactory square which was not completed (and yes has now been frogged). The softer and shinier Caron Simply Soft didn't provide enough stitch definition. Less definition, no texture, and much splitting = no fun! Hence, I made one more stab at getting the Lt. Periwinkle by placing a call to the AC Moore which is located 25mins from my house.
I called early. I apparently called before their opening time. I was enormously pleased with the pleasant management type person who checked the shelf and informed me that not only did they have sufficient quantity of the yarn in question, I would be able to use my teacher discount even though I don't yet have AC Moore's special teacher card. Into the car, out to the store and viola! AC Moore has been redeemed as my favorite place for inexpensive (acrylic) yarn. There is JOY copious amounts of JOY in Mudville!
