I've fallen for beautiful yarn, too. When I first got back into knitting, I thought that I'd be fine working with what I could find in the craft stores.
Then I discovered the good stuff and all hope was lost. If I'm going to spend lots of time on something, I'm going to enjoy every stitch of it. Loving the yarn I'm knitting with is a huge part of my personal enjoyment of knitting.
My pocketbook wishes I was less selfish when it comes to yarn, but what the heck--you only live once, right?
"Trust the pattern!"

Hop aboard while we follow the cloud-covered van of knitting harmony, man!! Woooo!! --Hedgehog
