My husband has a choice, quit smoking and tell me I can't buy yarn or suck it up and abandon plans for a new shop built in the back where I have plans for landscaping anyway...
I'm a pretty mean negotiator
I do remember when the kids were little and money was oh so tight and I discovered yarn at the charity shops. Yes it was cheap, but it was washable and I got my knitting fix in. I did tons of blankets and throws with that yarn. I have many "patchwork" blankies from that era, and I keep the to remember when I really could not afford anything more than the cheap stuff at Volde-Mart and I thought that was the high life. And I knit everything on the Size 10 circulars I had because it did the job and was the only set of needles I owned. I was always "financially mortified" back then and I look back now and shudder to think of how many times we barely made it. Perhaps that's why we're so close-knit now?
I wish you an economic windfall. And like you Irish like to say, may you live in interesting times.
