Have you ever been on a yarn Diet? I think it may be the hardest diet of all. I can go without certain foods, and alcohol, but yarn? I think chocolate is easy, but yarn is a different story.
Just before Christmas I went to the yarn store for grey buttons. Grey button for the cardigan I was finishing. I came back with buttons and three skeins of yarn to make a vest. You see even though I have a huge yarn stash, the beautiful Noro yarn screamed at me. It was as if it were talking to me. After the beautiful grey of the cardigan, I needed some color.
Okay, I can live with that purchase as a vest will be a very quick. So I decided that after the vest no more yarn until I knit from my stash. Then today I caved. Yes it is the second day of the New Year and I admit I fell hard. Not even for really expensive yarn, just some bamboo from JoAnn's. I blame it on the vest. I had to go to JoAnn's for buttons and then of course had to walk by the yarn. Wait a minute, I think I can blame this on the buttons. If it weren't for buttons I wouldn't be anywhere near new yarn!
Okay, I am now on a yarn diet.
Let's see how long this lasts.
