I DID IT..! *PUTTING CREDIT CARD IN FREEZER NOW*
I did it. I had been working overtime to pay off bills... well.... I did...pay off bills, but kept working the ot. Yesterday I was able to finally buy all the stuff .... no wait... some of the stuff I've been drooling over.... 4 different yarns, special notions, and a new yarn bag. I am soo bad. I haven't spent this much on just yarn ever. Also my lys is having a moving sale.. soooo not fair.. but picked up some beautiful yarn at 40% off.. So I had to buy it.. right? :thinking: Please tell me I'm right....oh and picked up some new books... so.. now I have all kinds of projects to do for Christmas. Great excuse.. right? Please help my guilty feelings... I never splurge like this.. but buying now for Christmas means no big bill at Christmas right?

You're absolutely, positively, definitely right! On all counts!

Putting my card in the freezer doesn't work. I know the number by heart.

I agree you are sooo right...some people don't understand it, but we do!! :D
darn I was shopping today with mom and we went to this store where I knew there was going to be yarn and so off I went in search for the mercery aisle and found all these beautiful colors..so I grabbed a basket, naturally, and picked out a few skeins, and then went to meet up with mom at the cash register, she practically yelled..WHAt?? MORE YARN?! NO...PUT IT BACK!! LOL! so I ended up just buying 3 skeins I needed for one of the scarves i'm knitting....is there really such a thing as too much yarn??

don't feel guilty!!!!! You did the right thing! It's not like you are buying crack or something! Go for it, and a sale, well, that's reason enough right there!

My goodness, I placed 5 different yarn orders in the past week and I'm on a yarn diet...LOL, you should see me when I'm not

You worked hard, be good to yourself!

40% off yarn...

There's no way you could've resisted that! Why would you even try!

Have fun with it!

Well, It does give a great high though I use to feel guilty about all the stash I have. I owe It to Ingrid, I have recovered from all my guilt feelings She is not a enabler she is a, Yarn Shopping Counselor. Have a great day and have fun with your new purchase.
