Damn it!

This is why you don’t knit at a yarn store:

Universal Yarn Company “Moods”

Plymouth Yarn “Happy Feet”

I was going there for good. I had a bag of things I’ve knit for a couple of months, and Full Thread Ahead has “charity knitting” every Friday. Or so I thought. Apparently the knitting group petered out around the holidays, so I was left on my own to shop!!! I couldn’t pass up this “Moods” yarn that has a nice amount of yardage (192) and is gorgeous. I don’t even knit socks these days, but the “Happy Feet” yarn was just gorgeous too. Damn it.

And I was just getting incredibly annoyed at how much yarn I have already.

(ETA: I totally forgot to mention just how good I was at Tuesday Morning this week, too, they had a huge collection of yarn and I almost bought some but I didn’t have time to wait in the line then. I’m glad I held out for the quality stuff!)

    Yep – you got that right. That is exactly why I don’t normally knit in yarn shops … I get mad cuz I have to be surrounded by all the yarn yummy’ness that out of my current budget… **sobbing**

    Nice haul though!!! 🙂

    OH, that Moods stuff is stunning! I’m going to have to look for that!

    Clearly you were meant to buy yarn this week.

    That’s why I don’t knit in yarn shops or bookstores. Coffeeshops are a little kinder to my budget.

    That Happy Feet colorway is really beautiful. I am so proud of myself, I was there Wednesday and I did not buy anything (I kept my hands in my pockets so I would not touch anything!)
