Like a Hole in the Head....

I’ve come to the conclusion that I need more yarn like I need a hole in the head. I tried previously to take “inventory” of what existed in my yarn closet and I’ll tell ya, the results aren’t pretty. (Well, they are, but the fact that I’ve spent $4000 on yarn so far this year – thank you, Microsoft Money- is decidedly not.)

As a result, I’ve come to the decision that I’ll limit my future yarn purchases this year to 1.) Stitches Midwest next week and 2.) any irresistible selections from the Elann.com swatching membership for the remainder of this calendar year. At the risk of one of you tracking me down and breaking and entering to snatch any of these lovelies – take a look at this inventory. It’s truly insane, and I know it’s not even complete.
