An unemployed girl should not be buying gorgeous yarn in today’s Plucky Knitter update. Even if she’s been cooped up inside for too long. Woops.
An investment in future designs? Tell that to the mounds of stash yarn in my house…
And there are things I should be spending my money on. Or, rather, saving my money for. But I just keep looking at yarn. And worse. Ordering it.
I used to buy yarn without any projects in mind, just because of the, “Oh look! Pretty!” phenomenon. But I actually have ideas for these things and know what I want to get them for. Do I need to get them all at the same time? No, of course not. (Well, to be fair, one of the brands is discontinued and I found a place that has it on clearance, including a colorway I couldn’t find in the US until I saw it there.) But do I want it anyway? Oh, hell yes.
I’ve already purchased, just because, and because the stock was running out:
And Medium Indigo (hopefully! It says it’s out of stock, but I think I bought the last ones. *crosses fingers*):
I want to buy these Knitpicks’ Andean Silk colors:
To knit these:
It doesn’t make it better that Knitpicks is so affordable.
And speaking of which, I am ruined for life. I discovered Malabrigo yarn. Malabrigo, Cinderella to Manos del Uruguay’s wicked stepsisters—softer, more colorways, more yardage, and cheaper. I have two skeins already in my knitting queue. But I also want these. Very badly.
Seriously, people. I need help. Is there yarn rehab??
