But it was a close thing--believe me.
As I'm taking a break from Cold Sheeping, there really isn't a reason for me NOT to buy yarn.......well, except for the really, really, REALLY massive yarn stash that is why I started Cold Sheeping in the first place. And the fact that I literally have no more room in the craft room. Two tubs are outside the door right now so I can get at some of my other stuff, and using up 52 balls of yarn and 46 yards of fabric just hasn't freed up as much space as I had hoped. (To be fair, the 22 yards for pajamas was fabric I purchased at the end of last year's spending ban and making 4 sets of pajamas meant I didn't ever have to find a place FOR that 22 yards of fabric, and 11 of the balls of yarn have been bought and used since I stepped off my sheep in September, but that's another story......)
Yesterday I received an email about discounted sock yarn. Discounted. Sock. Yarn. And I'm off the sheep........But I resisted. I even deleted the email. But after a 2 mile walk today and physical therapy, my hip was hurting and I was frustrated and feeling more than a little sorry for myself, so I went BACK to the website (like I'd have forgotten who had sock yarn at a 60% discount) and had almost justified a big new order of yarn. Luckily, I got derailed by looking for some nice tweed yarn for this sweater, which luckily meant I had to dig through my queue to find the link to the pattern, which reminded me of all the sweaters I have yarn for, which reminded me of all the sweaters I have already started, which--after I recovered from the shock--convinced me to turn the computer off and go back to my sock. 'Cause when that 230 yards is used up, I'll have so much more room.......................:)
