Today, I bought yarn, yarn, yarn, and more yarn..
I'm teaching a friend how to knit .. so, we went yarn shopping and found some wonderful yarns on sale.. such as:
The one on the top right- was in a package of 10 and we both liked the yarn- so, we each bought 1/2 and split the yarn.

And.. this yarn was a rare find-- we could buy it by the skein.. (usually you have to buy a whole package of yarn) I plan on making nice lacy scarves.. some for myself and some for gifts. This particular yarn was from Italy. Mama mia!!

AND, this isn't all I bought.. I know, I know.. I don't need any more yarn. But, I love yarn and it just calls out to me.. take me home.. take me home.

I put the photos of all the yarn on my blog. So, if you want to gaze and wish that computers had the ability to let you feel the yummy yarns.. go check the rest of the yarn purchases out..

I want to start knitting w/ something from my new yarn haul.. but, I have a baby hat.. that is just barely started.. but, must be finished.. since, it's a gift.

So, I can't be tempted by the new yarn!

Ooooo so pretty! Lucky you. I've got so much yarn laying around and a baby blanket (gift for cousin) in the works that DH won't let me buy anymore until I at least finish the blanket. Talk about tough. So many other projects calling.

Oh, I have so much yarn already.. but, I can get it at really good prices where I live right now.. so, I'm buying it while I can.
I look at it this way, after all, it doesn't really go out of style, I won't outgrow it before I can knit it up.

I only buy colors that I like.. so, I should still like it years from now.. AND..
when, I'm living somewhere.. where I can't afford to buy the yarn sold in that particular place AND, since, I currently work overseas.. not all countries that I have lived in.. have had yarn to buy..

AND.. it's so pretty.. it's hard to resist. I don't smoke, drink, or do drugs.. but, I do buy yarn.
