my life as a crocheter & knitter & working mom

Would someone please go and buy this and this so that I can stop thinking about it? The regret of missing out on cheap Calmer, especially the tangerine, would be painful, but the temptation is killing me! I mean come on now. Even on eBay Calmer generally goes for $9 a skein and here we have it for less than $4?

I know I have a get out of jail free card, but I can't use that in January. That would blow the whole thing to smithereens.

In other news, got my copy of Norsk Strikkedesign yesterday. (I got my copy here for a good price. Slightly damaged, okay the spine's a little wrinkled on the bottom.) Oh my word. I love it. The stash challenge will help me save enough to really splurge on the yarn. Not sure I'll go with the kits; I'm thinking I may need to go up in gauge so that the sweater will fit me.

I'm eight rows short of meeting my row of balls goal on Bounce. Official excuse: I had to make more center-pull butteflies. Actual excuse: a pint of Ben & Jerry's. See, I'm so not good with the temptation thing.

wait a minute...I thought sock yarn was allowed on the yarn diet...(I'm on a food diet--I can't handle both at the same time, so I may just give up yarn for Lent.)

Sock yarn, yes, but Calmer is for sweaters (at least in my book).
