A new jacket is always a good excuse to buy yarn because every jacket should have a pair of gloves or reading mitts in the pocket. And maybe there will be enough yarn for a narrow scarf.
The yarn feels wonderful but then Malabrigo always does!
I also bought yarn, Cascade super wash aran weight, for stocking caps and thought it was time to learn something new like knitting with more than one color, real fair isle rather than self striping yarn that sometimes looks like fair isle in spots. I cast on while watching movies with DD last weekend and it was not difficult at all....... the pattern is Baa-ble on Ravelry.
