willpower fail


This is my year of stash-busting, right? Well, sort of. Because it turns out when confronted with this new Noro Shirakaba in all my favourite greens I have absolutely no willpower. Every one of the ten skeins had to come home with me, as well as this pattern for a wrap cardigan.

With only a small amount of mental gymnastics, I've completely justified my purchase. Firstly, with a vacation planned in mid-May which involves a 15 hour drive there, a week on the beach, and then a 15 hour drive back, I definitely need a more substantial knitting project than socks. And I don't have any cotton or summery yarns in my stash, so I absolutely needed some. Besides, the green totally matches my eyes. So that's that, right?

ABSOLUTELY makes sense to me. It would have been awful to leave that wool in the store. I'm looking through your posts for inspiration. lol Gavin.

I will never hold buying green yarn against anybody. Green is awesome (plus I'm currently bidding on some lovely Noro Silk Garden despite my vow to stash bust this year so who am I to judge?)

Totally makes sense to me!

Sounds reasonable to me .You obviously needed it and if you didn't buy it you regret it when you're on that long drive, bored to tears wondering "are we there yet " .

I completely agree. And all I have to say to Gavin is "For shame!"
I'm jealous of all your knitting time, Lynn.
