Falling off the wagon...

Honestly, I need to start AA meetings but for those of us who just can't resist buying yarn. Lincraft has their yarn at 33% off at the moment so I ducked in for a few things. Of course, it's like ducking into the grocery shop for a few things and you always walk out with a trolley full and my trip to two different Lincraft stores today was no different. I have to say though that one good thing about being single is that I don't have to hide yarn purchases anymore! I didn't really realise how much I had bought until I got home and unpacked the car. I've got a plan for the Bamboozle (clappy scarf) and the pink/red colourway (scarf for mum) but other than that I have no plans for the rest so I'm definitely up for suggestions please!

I have to add that the addition of 5 balls of Balmoral tweed is definitely Helen and Georgie's fault - couldn't pass it up at just $2 a ball! It's a nice denim sort of colour too - now I just have to figure out what to do with it!

hey i don't remember forcing that yarn into your basket!!!

Sean says it's George's fault. She's got no self control when it comes to $2 sales.

I have some of that Balmoral tweed, in the denim, the lime and the brown color. I havent knit it as yet as I havent decided what to knit with it. All your yarns look great, and how good is $2.00 a ball. Now you will have more reasons to knit.

OH MY GOD, I FORGOT TO BUY SOME BAMBOOZLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You couldn't have done worse than I did. $146 and a lot of that were $2 balls is the benchmark (unless George managed to enhance her stash a little bit more...) I think Ican display my "stash named george" button with a bit more pride...

I do love your boodle though - you got same amazing colours there!
