and my mood today can't help but match the weather outside. So, what is a knitter to do when she needs cheering up? How about dream of the new yarn she's about it acquire this weekend?
What??? I'm not supposed to buy new yarn until Rhinebeck? Well, I have no choice. Really, I don't. I swear!
Remember I mentioned the LYS gift certificate my mom gave me for Christmas? My plan was to hoard it until I got really desperate for new yarn, and then use it as my Stash Diet Loophole. That plan got changed drastically when I came across the news that the LYS is closing in March. Their inventory is already 20% off. As I see it, I need to use this gift certificate before it's too late - what if they were to close earlier than March? Or even worse, what if I got there to find nothing left but eyelash yarn in day-glo colors!! (My apologies if you are into day-glo eyelash, of course, it's just not my thing.)
So, what do I do? Buy lots of versatile, work-horse yarns - like Cascade 220 and such? Or splurge on some really luxurious yarns I would never buy otherwise? Hmmm, I guess I'll decide when I get there and see what they have.
