Don't get me wrong, I won't buy something that I don't want or something that doesn't interest me, but if it is clothes or say yarn, then it is mine. That is actually how I acquired most of my wardrobe.
A skirt that I wouldn't pay full price for, what $12.90...it's mine. After all,I saved about seventy five percent. Who doesn't need a tank top that only costs $2.85, and it's beaded too. Do you see where I am going with this?
The same thing applies to yarn. When the LYS had their fifty percent off sale last year, I bought yarn. Lots of yarn. Though some of the yarn I only bought one skein of. Like the ball of Noro. I only paid $12.50 (yes, my LYS is a little over priced but I bought it).
Now here is another problem. I have been knitting that one ball for the last four days. I started doing a pillow cover in entrelac, but there was not enough for the entire thing. I frogged it. Then I started to do a mitered square. Didn't like the way it was turning out. I frogged it.
Finally I am doing a log cabinesque type thing. I think it's a winner. I am finally going to have a pillow cover, though it will only be one side. I think I will sew a back onto it or something.
The moral of the story, uh, I dunno. Buy more yarn? Yeah, that's it. Buy more yarn, especially if it's on sale.
And now for some Eye Candy.
Have a great weekend.
