I Have Yarn Lust

Obviously now that you have all seen the size of the stash, this comes as no great surprise.  Probably more along the lines of "stating the completely freakin' obvious" such as "I like to buy yarn."  But this time really is different.

I am lusting after yarn I already own.

Basically, I want to knit anything that isn't one of these lovely yarns:
I know, I know, the Stash Dash was my own idea, and I've even been doing really well on it.  I believe I've used up 7 or 8 of those skeins already and am rapidly closing in on that big 880-yard monster skein that I've been working on forever since February.  But I apparently have the emotional maturity of a three-year-old, and as soon as I can't have something, BAM!  It's all I can think of.  Today's object of lust is socks, but I'd settle for pretty much anything so long as it's forbidden.  

Perhaps after the Stash Dash is over, I should take away all my WIPS and forbid myself to work on them, just to see what my childish self would do.......A WIP marathon perhaps?
