I Can't Control It
I think we need an intervention here. NO MORE YARN! Seriously. We got paid yesterday. I've already bought several items. Most of which I don't need. Actually, I was upset because I had planned on buying that yarn for the cropped lace top much later as yellow is April/May. So why waste money on that now? However, I stupidly called to place the order, and the thing I wanted to order wasn't in stock, even though the site says it is. Instead I bought the Alpaca Cloud for the top. GUH! Also paid for something that I ordered awhile ago on Etsy from Cherry Blossom Fibers. Seriously, her yarn is beautiful.
Then I get into my thing about the colorwork and Rachel has to bring up the We Call Them Pirates patterns. Which I've been wanting to do...since I started knitting basically. They're having a KAL right now! *cries* I go peek at the yarn on Webs it's like...$12 to make the hat! What a STEAL! And the yarn is coated in Teflon people...TEFLON! That's so awesome. It rains like a PMSing woman with rapid-cycling bipolar disorder here. Which is to say, sporadically, often, and without warning.
Somehow, I see this ad for a Vogue knitting mag and wonder to myself "Is IK still on sale?". I pop in to check. Look at it, or if you are weak of will (as am I) avert your eyes! There are approximately three patterns on there I cannot live without, a couple I am feeling affection for, and a few that I could withstand not seeing. But, as most of you realize, it is those three patterns that I lust after that will cause me to beg and plead with dear hubby to buy me the sub. Yes, it's still on sale. Twenty dollars for a year. I...just...oh goodness.
