I'm pathetic
I have an hour dinner break tonight (working 6:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.) and I went to the LYS and bought needles and yarn so I can knit a facecloth. I bought yarn I already have, and needles I already have so I could knit for 30 minutes, what is left of my dinner break.

Did I think about food, NO, so I will be sitting here hungrey, but knitting, on needle size I have 4 of, with yarn I don't need, because apparently my skills at planning are about kindergarden level! Sigh

as most will tell you, there is no such thing as too much yarn--even if it's all of the same kind. As for the needles...don't even ask me how many pairs of size 10 I have--I swear bought 200 sets of size 10 and 8 when I first started knitting--it was the only sizes I used a lot and I kept wanting to try new brands of needles...so I just kept buying the same size...lol!

Just gnaw on the ends of your needles if you get hungry.

Especially if they're bamboo.... Doesn't that count as a food source? Lots of pandas thrive on it!

Next time~ make a list of yarn that you would like from your LYS.. that way if you get in stash exploration mode... you have alist of yarn that you want and need.
I can't fuss at you though.. because many time retail therapy is just what the doctor ordered... I know many times I go to HL or Michaels or Joannns and just look around and let my mind wander... and my bad day just floats away~~
