To Buy or Not to Buy

I met Cynthia today at our local craft store to browse the yarn department because everything was 25% off.  Not a safe thing to do when your basement yarn stash looks like a yarn store.  But a friend in need is a friend indeed and my friend Cynthia wanted my opinion on some yarn for a project she is inspired to begin.

So I went...  no, not reluctantly, this is yarn we are talking about and yarn is my drug of choice.

Cynthia likened the experience to being a child in a store picking out that new box of crayons - all those colors are so mesmerizing.

So I looked.  I touched.  I held.  I put skeins into my cart.  I took skeins out of my cart.  I put different skeins into my cart.  I dreamed of what those skeins could become in my hands with one of my hooks.

I love yarn.  I am addicted to yarn (just ask my husband).  I know that yarn is an issue in my house.  So did I buy yarn?


I have not learned to just say no to that question...to buy or not to buy.



  1. Mine is still hidden in the car. Do our husbands have our blog address? If not your secret is safe with me!

  2. Hmm. I was thinking about telling him the blog address. Maybe I should wait until after I confess the purchase! - Carol
