Umm....Oops?

Blue Heron Tulip 5 Blue Heron Tulip 4 Blue Heron Tulip 2 Blue Heron Tulip 1 Blue Heron Tulip 3 That's some Blue Heron Rayon/Metallic in the "Tulip" colorway that I picked up last night. I blame Jeanmarie. She asked me to meet up with her at a yarn shop fer chrissakes! What do you want from me? Restraint? I'd like to take this moment to assure my SP that there are plenty of nooks and crannies available in my condo for more yarn storage. And if yarn is something you really don't think I need, think of the bare spindle I bought a few weeks back. Or this yarn! Yeah, think of this yarn! This is the second 550 yard skein of Blue Heron Rayon/Metallic I've bought. Blue Heron Yarns How could I resist? So a pattern! A shawl I think! Yeah, that's the ticket! I swear, I'm trying to be good. No SP should have to compete with an impulse shopper such as myself. No no - you deserve SP! I'll try to be good!

Impulse shopper??? Yeah, unfortunately, or fortunately, depending upon your perspective, I suffer from that yarn-acquiring syndrome as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog btw. I am adding you to my bloglines for easier blogstalking!

The yarn looks fun - looking forward to seeing the finished shawl! It looks like it should be named after a cocktail/umbrella drink. :)

Forget the shawl! I'm hearing that yarn cry out to become a sexy little tank top.

Your yarn shots are out of this world.

Hee hee, thanks y'all. Somerset - really? A tank? Ya think? 550 yards is enough for that?

Yeah that's too pretty to pass up.

You're getting pretty close to us all having to start an intervention though ;-)
