Let The Yarn Lust Begin!

So, there are 57 days left in the year.....which means I can buy yarn in 58 days.  Of course, since I have only used up 57 skeins of yarn so far this year, there hasn't been much of a dent in the stash overall, so the question is.........

Do I Continue Cold Sheeping in 2010?

I'd like to say I have grown & matured enough to be trusted with the option of buying yarn without going on a total free-for-all with the Visa, but I'd like to be taller too, and that hasn't happened either.

My original plan was to buy yarn for one sweater each for Andy & I, then go back to cold sheep, but that little naggy voice in the back of my mind that is always SUCH a kill-joy has nicely reminded me that I still haven't finished the Kauni cardigan, which was my reward yarn for LAST year.  I'll probably just Beginend up ignoring Little Miss Buzz-Kill, but that does raise an interesting point.

Before I started the FIRST year of Cold Sheeping, I bought--well, and insane amount of yarn to be honest--and part of it was the yarn for the January Aran, which I just finished this year.  To start the SECOND year of Cold Sheeping, I bought the yarn for the Kauni Cardigan, which I will hopefully finish next year.  So maybe I'm just taking longer than I think. 

So that means I could buy yarn, right?
