You know when you get into that mood where you need SOMETHING to make you happy, whether it be food, drink, or….I don’t know….yarn? Well, I was doing pretty good, and still in based on the rules of the YFC and KFYS rules, however, I caved on the purchase of yarn. Now before you judge, listen to the circumstances.
On Wednesday, I went to Destash.com to do my daily review of what everyone is selling and I spot 2 skeins of Socks that Rocks for $12.00 including shipping. what WHAT!! I struggled with myself for about 5 minutes trying to convince myself out of it. Needless to say I caved and sent the e-mail to request the purchase. I waited all day, beating myself up for being so weak and then I got the e-mail….that said she sold it to someone else. I was both relieved and depressed about losing this wonderful deal.
However, fate had something else in store for me.
My Valentine’s day was a little depressing. This is probably one of the few times I think about being single and it is only compounded by the fact that everyone is so lovey dovey and getting presents. PRESENTS!! Well, I wanted a present too, but was still on this nasty yarn diet so I suffered through the feeling until I got to my knit group.
One of our normal meeting places, Banana Berry, was closing and I specifically turned down an invitation to be the third wheel on my Sister’s Valentine’s dinner to be with my friends at knit group. My reward was that the owner, in a very CALM voice told me that all yarn in the store was $5.00. $5.00? I didn’t believe her. I kept repeating it and looking around as if it was a cruel joke. I picked up yarn and looked at her, “$5.00?” I asked. She mouthed “5.00”. I picked up another, “5.00?” Once again she said “5.00!”. When another knit group member arrived I told her about the deal with the same reaction “5.00!!!”
So needless to say I used my Get out of jail free card for KFYS and my free day for YFC. To buy these goodies:
2 skeins Cherry Tree Hill to hopefully make the chevron scarf for the Scarfalong
and some of this:
That was after 3 hours of mulling and shopping so that I didn’t add to much to my stash. Technically, I was the picture of restraint. Here was the damage for one of my other knit group members which proves it could have been much much worse.
