Help, I've fallen

and I don't want to get back up. Those of you who read this blog will know that I buy yarn with reckless abandon. New yarn brings with it new possibilities. Of course, old forgotten yarn tends to do the same thing when brought to new light (or out of the stashroom). This year however I joined Knit from your Stash 2007, where I will buy no new yarn (with a few exceptions) and will "shop" the stash. I have, up until this month stayed true to KFYS...only adding sock yarn and various "gifts". But then I tripped and fell over my wallet at the "all you can carry" sale at Full Thread Ahead. Hence this addition to the stash -- and not one stinkin' ball of sock yarn:

7 balls of bamboo/silk, 3 super sks of sea silk. I hang my head in shame...NOT. This is yummy yarn! It was well worth falling off the wagon -- heck, jumped off was more like it (I even got my daughter to come with for extra "arms" -- I didn't need them though). And yes, those are new Longaberger baskets too -- if you have to know, bought direct from the Factory Store in Ohio.
Ah well. It was fun while it lasted. I'm not saying it's over now. I'm not sure when the next purchase will be. I have no plans to return to a yarn store anytime soon. The deadline lifts after TKGA in Oakland this September, and I am allowed 1 slip up. So far this is it -- no exclusions.

Just passing by and had to laugh, I feel off the wagon (4 months sober of yarn purchasing) for the giant Sea Silk skeins at FTA. I have to say, I did a little worse than you, I bought 5 of them...

I've been wondering, if you sell some of the yarn, does that cancel out your new .... mmmm moment of weakness? There must be some yarn that you don't care as much that can go on eBay. Just a thought.

I looked at that picture, and instantly thought Ooh, Sea Silk! Gorgeous stuff, isn't it!
