Speaking of What was I Thinking?, while I won't let myself indulge in casting on yet for an aran that I long to make, I did indulge yesterday in ordering some Jo Sharp yarn for not one, but Two aran sweaters. Someone over on KR posted an inquiry about where to find Jo Sharp yarns (which are beautiful yarns but are not avail for sale anywhere in St Louis) and someone from Knitwerks replied that not only do they have it on sale, but with the code she posted in the entry you'd get an extra 10% off. I ended up getting the Wool DK for $3.50/sk. I bought Navy to make one for dh and Tawny for me. In the interest of being the wonderful enabler that I know how to be, you can find the sale code here posted in the entry from Yarnni.
