It is possible that one of my resolutions just made it possible to break another.
I have been happily paying myself for working out. I've been stockpiling the money with the knowledge that I can use it to buy whatever I'd like. I don't spend money easily, so it's been sitting idle.
And then I saw this post.
I love her yarn. I love her sense of humor. I love her color choices.
The first yarn I bought from her became this
and the second became this
Actually, it became two identical pairs of those. I gave the other set away. Andrew bought me a skein of her yarn for my birthday in the colorway Angst for the Memories, which I haven't used yet.
Love. Her. Yarn.
So, when I saw the post with a fantastic colorway and a new base, I ordered it. I actually had to stop myself from ordering both available skeins of Also, I Can Kill You With My Brain, and then I had to stop myself from ordering both a skein of that AND a skein of Tardis.
On one hand, I think this is precisely the sort of thing on which I should use exercise money. I love it, will get lots of enjoyment out of it, and the purchase supports a small business. On the other hand, I recognize that one of my resolutions was to knit with yarn from my stash instead of purchasing new yarn.
I just am unable to care in the face of such perfection. Bring on the new yarn.
