Stupid Yarn Sale

Well, I was most unsuccessful in controlling myself in the presence of cheap yarn. Ok, not CHEAP yarn, inexpensive but really really nice yarn. I spent way beyond what I had planned, but if in fact it had not been on sale, just think how much I would have spent, eh? It would have been close to triple what I actually spent so I think I'm all good. (I can talk myself into almost anything) I ended up with 8 balls of Louisa Harding silk/wool, 3 balls of Lousia Harding Kimono Angora, 2 balls of Cascade Fixation, 2 balls sock yarn called "Clown" (does that mean I have to wear the socks with giant red shoes??), 1 ball Jaegger Spun Zephyr Wool/silk, 1 skein of OnLine Egyptian cotton, 1 skein of Nature Cotton, 1 ball of Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy, 1 ball of label-less cream colored cotton, a tiny sample skein of cashmere, 1 ball of shockingly pink/rainbow yarn for the newest knitter on the block, Thing 1, and 1 ball of slightly scary puffy pinkandpurple yarn for my patient 4 year old helper, Thing 2. Boy, when you list it all out like that, it seems like a lot.....however, since I got there 5 minutes before the store even opened and it was all there, right in front of me, untouched and unpilfered through, a good bit of it made its way home with me. Oh well-c'est la vie! I have it all out on the table and pet it a bit when I walk by, just because I can. I've got lots of projects in mind for just about all of it so I don't feel so bad about it (did I mention I can talk myself into just about anything?) Now I just need to get my silly little baby, Thing 3, to understand that sleep is a GOOD thing so I can actually have the time to use my new yarn goodies. It's a good thing yarn doesn't go bad.

Well, off to watch the Hokies play in The Tournament. LET'S GO, HO-KIES!
