Buy More Yarn

I think I may have a problem. No, not a serious type problem, but a problem none-the-less. See, whenever I go shopping and something is on sale and I think I am getting a good great deal, I will buy it. Regardless if I need it or not.

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 $'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.

I have the same problem. I went to Old Navy today and came back with $60 worth of $5 shorts and $3 shirts for the LittleMan. Grrr...I have no control.
