Talk me down...
Ok so this weekend I I won $215 at my HUGE family reunion in the 50/50 raffle then today my boss gave me a $300 bonus.

AWESOME RIGHT???
We are going to WY this summer in August to visit my IL's. We are going to rent a car and that pretty pays for it....again cool...

So why do my fingers keep going to knitpicks and ALMOST checking out my shopping cart which includes the new Options.

AND...last night I bought some Wick and Cotton fleece for upcoming projects AND a pair of Addi's from Jeff.

Why isn't this enough???

I want MORE!

I have no willpower. I bought shoes at around 2am on Monday morning - they arrived by courier at 9am (7 hours later). I can't talk you down - I'm the devil in disguise I'd say go for it

I can't help either...I've been on a shopping spree for the last week and I need to stop but now, of course, dh needs new shoes and shorts for the summer. (not according to him, of course...)

I know...I know!!!

I really do think I will buy some Malabrigo. My husband knew too...the minute my raffle ticket was called. He leaned over to my sister and said "Thank GOD the yarn store is already closed"

I know how you feel! While he's deployed, dh makes several hundred more dollars each payday. When I see the deposit is in our account it's all I can do to transfer it over to our vacation fund. I keep seeing yarn, needles, more yarn, oh and more yarn!

Isn't it funny how once you're hooked, money=knitting swag? Or lack thereof? I just found out that my car needs a new transmission...we're talking most likely around $1500-ish worth of work...and my first thought was, man, I could buy a LOT of yarn with $1500. :crying:
