Someone PLEASE reprimand me
Tell me there will be yarn left in the world even if I don't buy it all right now!

Since truly discovering the beauty of KH on...oh....Saturday? I have bought 80 dollars worth of yarn and pattern books from Knitpicks...two sets of large Lantern Moon ebonies off Ebay, am watching ANOTHER auction for a GORGEOUS yarn that I MUST have, and am waiting a week so I can replenish my savings so I can get several balls of Blue Sky Alpaca in Peace Pink - which I'm OBSESSED over. I've just been going to the site and gazing at it like a jilted lover.

I'm a mess. And I don't get the sense from the posts here that this is likely to let up.

We're mostly enablers here...you're not likely to get much reprimanding

Way to go! Don't forget that if it's on sale it will NEVER be on sale again! So you must snatch it all up immediately! And if you see a yarn that says 'discontinued'--there will never, ever be anything like it ever again. Buy it all. Even if you have no clue what you're going to do with it. If something is being auctioned--bid highest! You'll be the WINNER!! The person who would have outbid you probably doesn't deserve the yarn, anyway. Credit card companies are happy to raise your limit--and you know all those free offers you get in the mail for new cards?

Now how's THAT for enabling!

OMG, Ingrid....

The only thing that keeps me reasonable is the fear of the NAGGING I will get from DH!

YOU are no help, miss lady.

But I like the rationale... I'll show my FI this thread when he finds my rapidly growing yarn stash in the trunk of my car.

:( But he'll see it.....

Alright alright, I'll wait til he's napping this evening and then make my move...hopefully it's not too bad.

I've already taken to putting vanilla beans in my storage baskets/containers to add my favorite scent to the yarn. It's working. That should help. It's only been a day or two.

Thanks kemp, it was the very first thing I thought of when I started hoarding...I mean buying, yarn. I'm fanatical about scent and vanilla makes me calm and happy.
