Yarn is Ordered

Well, today I took a deep breath and made a yarn decision. I decided that because this is my first attempt at steeking, I'd go with a less costly yarn, in case it turned out disastrous. I chose an Elann yarn called Devon, a sports weight wool. The description of the yarn says it's unshrinkable, so I'm hoping there won't be a problem steeking. There wasn't a good dark neutral, so I chose a deep olive for the MC. I matched the other colors as closely as possible, but we'll see how it turns out. I also ordered 3 sets of Addi Turbo circs. I told DH, this was my Christmas present to myself. I can't wait to get started on this project!

You're way ahead of me! Perhaps I am in denial? I haven't ordered a thing. I'll be getting ready once I'm back in Minnesota- I hope I can find the/a yarn!

Woot! Way to go! Sometimes choosing is half the battle!
