that tiny sticker price magnetized me and
before I knew it
I had a bundle of this

in my arms…

Now, I’m probably a day late (but NOT a dollar short) in finding out that my Happy Pal LB Cotton Ease is DISCONTINUED! Everybody is talking about this online – blogs, forums, etc. and it only took me one trip to a local Joann Fabrics to find out this was TRUE! (And to scoop up a little bluesy for myself, just to console myself, but of course.)

Why it was just yesterday that I used CE to make this

And this

And now this

It is my all time favorite for Buckets bup.jpg too -

WHAT THE —-?!

Even Family Circle Easy Knitting had 4 patterns this spring in this yarn and POOF! Good-bye…

Dontcha wonder what they are thinking when this happens? Don’t we need basic workhorse yarns MORE than we need what you might call FOUFOU? (Not a real yarn name, as far as I know… :) But you get my drift………………….

If you WANT people to become lifelong knitters, they have to use basic yarns to make WARDROBE for themselves and family. If you want knitting to be just a Flash in the Pan, repeating its popularity every 20 years or so, then just keep throwing this other Stuff at us and we’ll just Go Away…
