2 days left

So.. This whole Lent thing... 

When hubby and I were married, he asked that our future children be brought up Catholic. I didn't have a problem with it.. I had MANY a friend who were and they turned out OK (mostly).. ;).. and afterall I was marrying a Catholic... So, this year, I tried to set a positive example and sacrificed (gave up) something for lent... What that was? BUYING YARN!.. I decided for the next 40+ days.. that I shall ONLY knit from what was in the stash.. ONLY!!! 
Here's one stash buster

OMG!!!! And you never said a word. I just thought you were being economical. Wow! Well, better than the mood you were in last year when you gave up caffeine. I have to give you credit, I'm an actual Catholic, and I gave up nothing. Ishbel is lovely!!!

You never told me, while I was off torturing you with stops at LYS! You make a better Catholic than the rest of us.
