Another failed cart.

This is the second time today (at least) I’ve come thisclose to ordering yarn. I still haven’t heard anything about the yarn I ordered on Etsy on February 14th, and I’ve definitely had some buyer’s remorse for having ruined my “yarn diet” of a couple of months.  I was dead set on ordering a big order from Little Knits, but even though the yarn is a good price, it’s nothing I really can’t live without.  Not so my latest “dream yarn” order from Webs. Interested?

    Holy Moly… That’s a lot of savings, but that’s a huge bill too!

    Don’t look at the bill – look at the savings! lol.

    You’re going into an “all or nothing at all” stage? I ate this cookie so I’m going to eat this cake? (only sub skein vs herd of sheep wool) I’d say don’t do it…..but it’s so easy to say and so hard to do…..

    Your post almost got me off my yarn diet – but I couldn’t quite do it. I actually didn’t think the total was too bad, since you saved so much. I am really good at justifying, though.
