As if I didn't have enough...

I got more. I ordered from Sue at Little Knits last week when I stupidly checked the yarn sale thread of the coffeeshop. She was selling Noro Big Kureyon for 50% off! How could I resist? So I got a couple hanks. That's color #18. And then I spied some Lorna's Laces sock yarn that I've been dying to try. But I just never saw it around and could never bring myself to actually buy it before. So, I broke down. Purple Club Iris Garden All I can say is - wow. I can see why people drool over this stuff. It's so soft! I don't know what would happen to my bank account if I ever came across this stuff locally. Wow. In other news, see that progress bar over there? The pinwheel baby blanket? Yup. It's almost done. I'm working on the crochet edging. Yup, I'm a hooker now. Just call me prostiturtle. Pics when its all officially finished.

Remember when I vowed I wasn't going to buy anymore yarn until I finished at least three sweaters?
Uh, well, I just bought 8 skeins of superwash merino wool for a log cabin afghan I started last week. Hee hee. :D

Yummy yarn! I have been thinking and dreaming and wanting and lusting after some Lorna's sock yarn myself. One day I will have to fulfill my little fantasy and get myself some.

As if you didn't have enough already! ;)

I can't resist a bargain either and it does look gorgeous.

Isn't LL the greatest sock yarn EVER? I love it. It's just as nice to knit with as it is to pet too!

I stay out of the yarn sale forum. It's dangerous territory.
