Okay, here's my quandry...
I ordered my swift today from Joanns with the 50% coupon. so that is on its way. i tried to use it again and them sneaky people told me no! soooo i was going to use my 40% coupon to get it a little cheaper than their sale price. well i decided to call a couple of my LYSs to see how much they sold theirs for. One was fully $10 more than Joann's. So i called the other and they sell it for about $2 more than what it would be to have it shipped to me so my logic is saying to just go pick it up then there is no shipping hassle at all.

Now here is the issue....how the heck do i go into the LYS and buy the winder and nothing else? i have more yarn than i know what to do with right now as we all know...i am going yarn shopping in two weeks with my momma who seems h-e-double hockey sticks bent on financing a big yarn binge....hrmmm...mebbe i take cash and only enough to pay for the winder....yeah that may be the ticket...being weak sucks but i like it soooo much!

Yup! That's the only way. I believe it's one of the YA steps, too. Bring only enough cash for the baller, leave the cards at home. Save your soul.
