Yarn diet? What yarn diet? I was on a yarn diet, right? I think I remember that. Except, not so much with sticking to the yarn diet.
I was balancing my checkbook tonight and realized that somehow, I’ve spent the grocery budget on fiber.
In the last two weeks I’ve bought 3 skeins of Socks That Rock, 10 skeins of sock yarn and 32 ounces of roving from Pigeonroof Studios, 4 oz of roving from Sachi’s Purls, 8 oz. of roving in Delphinium and my roving of the month club offering from Spunky Eclectic.
What demon fiber junkie impulses possessed me? What happened?
I mean, don’t get me wrong, I am really looking forward to the socks and yarn I will make from these things, and wowie is it gorgeous fiber! but I also like eating. Dipping into savings to cover that is *painful*. Good thing I just got a raise at work this week, I guess.
I’m so back on my yarn diet.
But I’m gonna be knitting up some dandy socks while I’m on it.
In all seriousness though, it is probably not a bad idea to do some self examination about why I have no concept of “moderation” when it comes to this kind of thing.
