I don’t feel hungover yet. But in a few hours, when I balance my checkbook, I’ll feel the pain. That familiar throbbing behind the eyes, the vomitous pangs in the pit of your stomach, that bitter taste in your mouth, the guilty “why’s” from the day before. After a month of Prohibition, I guess I was bound to overindulge. I’m embarrassed to admit it but I had a bit of a Yarn Bender last week. Here’s a recap of the damage:

11 skeins each of Knit One Crochet Too’s Angora Soft in Brown & Pale Pink arrived from WEBS yesterday afternoon. Not only were these insanely cheap to begin with, but for some reason WEBS saw fit to give me another 25% off on both these lots! Woo Hoo! I’ll take it….
And 16 balls of Laines du Nord Dolly Maxi (a heavy worsted merino wool) for cheap cheap cheap from WEBS too…..
And as yesterday was also our first genuinely gorgeous, warm, day in at least 5 months, I figured it was about time to get my fake on too. With all this yarn to keep me occupied I don’t expect I’ll have much time to work on my tan, so here’s the alternative:
Trying something new this year…. we’ll see if I end up looking like this ball of yarn when I’m done
