Look what I did!

Unbelieveable... who let me out of the house off my yarn diet!

Yikes! I too love the colors and I just couldn't resist! Lorna's Lace in "Mother Lode" and "Jeans" which I have been wanting for a while!

*** Updated... a few hours later...
The LYS was having a sale of 20-30 percent off so I really couldn't pass up the opportunity. I have way too much sock yarn now! But on a positive note (as if sock yarn wasn't positive enough) I think I picked out the yarn I want to use for the latest 6sox KAL... maybe this brown sugar wildfoote you see here with a skein of black I also have... or maybe it will be some sock memories yarn from knitpicks... oh my I can't decide.

Sadly with all this rain today and in the forecast and all the money I spent on sock yarn and Noro over the past minth, I don't think I'll be going to Rhinebeck tomorrow. Thats ok with me though. Maybe I'll get there next year. If it were closer I wouldn't hesitate, but I am having seconds thoughts now that I have spent way too much the past month and with the holidays rapidly approaching... I should be home knitting!

With a sale like that, I don't blame you for one minute. Lorna's Laces at 30% off? I'd have trouble passing up on that one too!

With a sale on, I have to admire your restraint! The yarn looks lovely.

Yarn diet? Yarn is fiber and everyone knows you need a lot of fiber in your diet. So for your own health you should purchase as much yarn as possible just to make sure you have enough fiber.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
