I buy needles in bulk and they never break. I buy them in single packs, they all break at once. Insurance.

I buy extras, leave them in the bag and stash them away some where and then buy more when I can't find them. I am sure I have all kinds of stuff in places they are not supposed to be. I found one of those pretty yarn cutters the other day in a JA's bag. I am bad about just plopping stuff in my sewing area. I tidy up and poof..gone.

Yes it's a Greenfields cardigan, by the same author as the Tea Leaves sweater

It's a great sweater, I'm sure I'll be wearing it a TON as weather gets cooler and I get bigger
