You are such a tease and yes there is crack in yarn cause dang it I'm addicted to the stuff. I am no longer allowed in Hobby Lobby, Micheals or any craft store unsuervised. DH has to chaperone me to make sure I don't spents a bunch of $$$$ on yarn.

I know the feeling. I was just browsing Ravelry the other day, right? Nothing so harmful about that. But... there was a banner for a 10% off coupon for Ravelry users. So I clicked. And... they had a decent price on Malabrigo... and then, what with the 10% off and all, it was actually a pretty good deal....

And... they were running out... and I had to make a snap decision.... and...

Okay, so I can't justify it, but I happen to have a fair amount of the cuddly joy headed my way. Oops?

I've been in there, but I'm just not that jazzed about `real' yarn, I guess. And I'm probably spoiled by Hobby Lobby and Hancock's prices, not to mention knitpicks. I don't care for Noro or having to hand wash everything I make, so stick to acrylics or washable blends.

Ahhh, wells. That explains it...
