You are such a tease :-P and yes there is crack in yarn cause dang it I'm addicted to the stuff. I am no longer allowed in Hobby Lobby, Micheals or any craft store unsuervised. DH has to chaperone me to make sure I don't spents a bunch of $$$$ on yarn.

Very yummy yarn! I like the color too. I don't see a thing bad about buying more yarn :wink: Can't wait to see it made up into your son's hat.

I know the feeling. I was just browsing Ravelry the other day, right? Nothing so harmful about that. But... there was a banner for a 10% off coupon for Ravelry users. So I clicked. And... they had a decent price on Malabrigo... and then, what with the 10% off and all, it was actually a pretty good deal....

And... they were running out... and I had to make a snap decision.... and...

Okay, so I can't justify it, but I happen to have a fair amount of the cuddly joy headed my way. Oops?

I've been in there, but I'm just not that jazzed about `real' yarn, I guess. And I'm probably spoiled by Hobby Lobby and Hancock's prices, not to mention knitpicks. I don't care for Noro or having to hand wash everything I make, so stick to acrylics or washable blends.

Ahhh, wells. That explains it...

awww heck suz,
I like the affordable stuff as well, I have 4 large tubs of it. And KP is my personal friend,( I wish LOL) but then ya'll get a chance to go into someplace with all that gourmet yarn and well dang, yer eyes glaze over, you start mumbling to yerself, you go wobbly at the knees, and ya just got to buy something to keep the voices in your head from overwhelming you ROFL:roflhard: Can you tell I don't have a yarn shoppe within a hundred miles of me?? LOL. Even Hobby lobby is over 50 miles away, dang:waah: .
Yeah, the company my hubby works for has a huge yard over on the other side of town there.

If you're ever in Laramie, there's a nice yarn shop there. We went 'sploring one day and I went in and fondled stuff I only hear about on the internets.... Mostly, I don't need to buy anything, I have a really large stash picked up here and there - thrift store, sales, and some from a mill outlet from Michigan when I lived there.

Well, it just goes to show ya, we're all alike. Went into my LYS this afternoon for ONE SKEIN of yarn, spent $68.30! Kind of had to sneak it in the house, he only saw the book, I think . . . Seems when I go in there I get :zombie: -ized.
