Crowd: Hi Jo.
Jo: I've been addicted to yarn for a few days now, surfing Webs, KnitPicks and even Joann to get a virtual fiber fix. The problem is, I want so much yarn right now that I know it would take me forever to start and finish all of the projects I want to knit. Like, I've had 7 skeins of KnitPicks Cadena in Saffron (gorgeous color, isn't it?) in a my shopping basket for weeks, but I haven't bought it. Yarn is pricey (albeit cheaper than buying a custom sweater out of the fiber) and I'm a tightwad. I keep thinking that it doesn't hurt to look, but I'm beginning to get a serious case of wool envy.
But that's not my only problem. I'm also up to my ears in holiday knitting. Right now I'm working on or about to start knitting:
1 pair of fingerless mittens
2 pairs of socks
All of these projects for other people are keeping me from knitting something pretty for myself. I think I felt this way last year after knitting one to many damn hats. I now have to knit four more F@#$ING HATS! Two of which are supposed to be earflap hats for siblings.
But all I want to do is buy some nice, cushy yarn and knit something for me.
