The Loopy Ewe is going to make me broke. Seriously.
Over the weekend, I purchased some Louet Gems fingering weight to make a pair of Eunny’s Endpaper Mitts. Since I was already ordering, I decided I couldn’t live without Lorna’s Laces in Mt. Creek. I can get away with buying only one skein of sock yarn because I have small feet and can get a decent sized sock out of that ~ 200 or so yards that come from a 50g skein of sock yarn. If I order two, I always have way too much left over. I made my purchase and quickly navigated away from the site (and any other online shops) so I didn’t buy any more. I’ve been doing okay on the yarn buying and keeping the spending to a minimum, but some days I just want some retail therapy and I cave and get a little something. I’m sure some of this is because I have a lot of big projects on the needles which is making me feel like I’ll never finish anything any time soon, so I buy yarn and somehow this makes it better.
Anyhow, today was the Sneak Up over at The Loopy Ewe. I’m thankful that I missed some of it and a lot of stuff is already gone, but now I’m finding MORE things I like! I want to buy a bunch of stuff now. I’m being very good, though, since this weekend is A Wool Gathering and I know that if I spend now, I will have nothing to spend this Saturday and I will be very sad if I can’t get the "one thing I can’t live without", should I find such an item.
I should be getting the goodies in the mail any day, though, so I’ll have that little fix before the weekend.
Hopefully I can get some of these projects off the needles soon. I have a pair of socks that are almost done, I want to get that scarf done this week (maybe), and the top-down raglan has seen 3 skeins worth of progress this past weekend. Come on, FOs!
