A few weeks ago I put myself on a yarn diet until Rhinebeck. I was okay with this, staying away from the LYS and avoiding Etsy and other fiber-happy websites. And then it came...

KnitPicks sent me a catalog.

Granted, this isn't the first yarn catalog to be delivered since I began this diet. I'm on the Webs mailing list, too. But I can ignore the Webs catalog because Webs is practically a LYS for me, which means that if I'm going to buy yarn from them, I'll drive up to Northampton and get it in person instead of paying for shipping (although with these gas prices, shipping just about balances out the 90-minute round-trip). KnitPicks, though... that's temptation.

How am I supposed to ignore all this sock yarn?


Never mind that I have so many UFOs and WIPs that I won't be cutting into my stash for many, many months... *sigh*

While pretty, KP sock yarn has not impressed me so far. Just sayin'. Stay strong, lady!

Priorities, hon! Priorities!
You have a goal, right?
You can be strong...
