I am so weak!

yes - I succumbed to advertizing. Popped into KnitPicks just to see what they might have these days...and they are having a sale.

I did manage to keep it down to 12 skeins of laceweight merino and round out the order with some needles I've been wanting to order.


Thank heavens for another weak willed person. I have just done something very similar myself, and I didn't take much persuading.

AND...since we're confessing...a trip to the LYS and some $$$later, I have piles of new yarn. Hand painted, chenile, silk, merino, lopi,...now, all I need is a second job and I'm set...but it IS fun,isn't it!?

It is kinda hard to resist a good sale. I've been eyeing some stuff at KnitPicks myself.

Only 12 skeins, well done MM! ;-)

Whine, whine, whine . . .

Can you admit to buying cotton roving: 5 lbs. for 10 bucks on a whim? 4 lbs. flax @ 7 bucks/lbs.? Even when you've got enough of each to clothe most of the third world?

Nah. I'm the Impulse Slut here . . . Brand me, beat me, tell me I'm cheap . . . Make me write bad checks . . .

It's that good ol' New England Puritanical Guilt [GONEPG - the latest knitting acronymn] eating at me...since I haven't even touched the 6 lbs I got from WEBS the last time I lapsed or the 4 or the 5 cones from SarahsYarns, and I did inherit Gramma's stash last year.

MMario - Can anybody tell me what year it is?
