I love Target.
I had toyed with the idea of a Leftovers vest to use up some stash yarn, but as I said before, none of the stash yarns were doing it for me. The closest I came was this combo of Cascade 220 leftovers:
It looked okay, but nothing special. Then, yesterday, I caught a glimpse of this bag at Target:
Which is when it hit me. “Orange! I need orange!” I bought the bag so I could take some pictures of it for reference (I’ll take it back to Target when I’m done and get my $16.99 back—that’s yarn money, yo!), and today I made an emergency trip to Gourmet Yarn Co. to pick up some orange Cascade. Kind of defeats the purpose of a vest made of leftovers, but still—at the end of this project, I will have a bright stripey vest for only $7!
