This $5 Thing... really going to kill me!

So I went to Purlescence Yarns today with my favorite friend the OCK and it was really a test of willpower! Sure, I was there last night for knitting night but I was happy to just enjoy the company of my fellow knitters and watch A Christmas Story.

The problem was I could wander around the shop and look at yarn!

Ok, so I resisted temptation last night but then I went and pushed my luck by going again today! See, I had seen a colorway of Dream in Color Smooshy that I thought perfect for Jeanie. Except I didn't look at the band to see what the hell color it was. So I wanted to go back and look at the colorway before they sold out.

It was soooo hard going back a second time! But I resisted! I have witnesses! I bought no yarn! I do not owe any *$5 "fees"!

Man, this is gonna be hard.

*Ok, so I would have owed $15 had they actually HAD three skeins of Deep Seaflower. But they had only two left. So I am still safe. For now. Hey, anyone feel like heading over to the Loopy Ewe and buy me 3 skeins for a Christmas present? I'm sure we can work something out. Come on, you know you want to!!

Good for you resisting :) (I know it wasn't entirely up to you that you didn't cave in ;) )It's so hard to not buy yarn when you see it...I have to go on a yarn diet, too :)

You two are too funny! Or maybe just really smart? I have heard about Kristi's stash but just how big is yours?!

Go will power! You really did it, although it should be mentioned that because you weren't buying any yarn you were TOTALLY being an enabler. Oh... look at this.... *wave yummy yarn in my absolute must have color* and it feels so nice... Anyway, I have seen too much sock yarn (remember that lady with the 40 different colorways of the SAME yarn!?) and you aren't even close!
