yarn: Knitlob's Lair Väinämöinen, in colour Oliivi
needles: 2.25mm circular
I guess I don't need to explain to you people how craft fairs go every year for those who love all kinds of pretty, pretty [cough, expensive], pretty yarn: if you're a broke student like me, you have a strict 50e budget and thus will be able to buy only 2 skeins of something awesome and 5 of those Twizzler-like liquorice. And 2012 craft fair wasn't any different. So I bought whatever I bought that day and was forced to leave Väinämöinen skeins there because I simply couldn't afford to have them.
Here comes the awesome part of the grandma story: my lovely friend, who has to put up with my rabid yarn rants all the time, was aware that I, with an unfortunately skint arse, had eyes on three colours: Oliivi, Antiikki and Vadelma. Knowing those tough decisions made at the fair, she bought me a skein for Xmas! Wordless here, dear lovely friend.
