UFO Night...

Since tonight is ufo night I thought I would talk about the project I would work on this evening...MOM'S SWEATER. A few weeks after my dad passed away, mom and I went shopping. We ended up at "Wal-Mart" of all places. Well, me being the compulsive crafter I am...I had to walk through the craft dept. (go figure, I guess that's what happens when you used to manage a craft department) The first place I head to is the yarn section. Now I can hear some of you out there..."Wal-Mart" yarn, EEEWWWW. Well all I can say is when you've got to feed the addition you do so by an means necessary!!! You buy what you can, when you can. Some of you out there know what I mean. :) Anyway, back to my story...We were looking at the yarn and I heard mom "oh"ing and "awe"ing. I turned around and saw mom looking at a pretty variegated skein of "Red Heart". It was all different shades of purple. Very nice colors. Mom commented on the colors and hinted that her favorite shades were all here.(Dad always liked mom in purple) Well...You can guess what came next. Several skeins ended up in my cart. I brought it home and picked a pattern. (It's a shawl collar sweater from "25 Gorgeous Sweaters fro the Brand-New Knitter" .) Of course the pattern I picked wasn't the right gauge for the yarn so it was back to the store for me. I bought a heather purple to strand with it. It looks pretty together. Mom knows she's getting a sweater but doesn't know when. I thought I would give it to her for Christmas so when she puts it on she can think of dad and realize he is still hugging her from heaven.
