I'm crying out for help, here, piggies! Any suggestions?
I was confident you would come rushing to my aid. While I waited for your sage advice to start pouring in, I managed to summon up the willpower to avoid the Monday sale on Elann. Fortunately, it was for Regia sock yarn, which, while perfectly lovely (particularly in the Raspberry), doesn't exactly make Piggy swoon.
By the early afternoon, the comments started to come in.
Well. I am sorry to sound harsh, but as far as interventionists go, you guys are full of FAIL. (Jen, where were you when I needed you, eh?)
In the face of your tacit approval -- and even, in some cases, full-on attempts to sabotage my efforts (I'm thinking of a certain Yarn Sprout, here) -- I managed to hold my ground in the face of Elann's Tuesday sale (the Plymouth Shire Silk wasn't terribly tempting: very wan colours), and yesterday (no Elann sale, plus I didn't venture outside all day).
But really, without any support, I could only go so long without faltering.
Early this afternoon, after my doctor's appointment and a wee bit of KIPping in the sunshine at Lonsdale Quay, I ventured into the Village for a sandwich. Followed by a quick trip into Urban Yarns to see if that hot pink Cathay was still there.
It wasn't. Whew, right?
Nope. Because this addict overheard another
(It was 539; or "Vanity". Heh. Piggy can't seem to remember she's currently unemployed, but boy, can she remember colourway codes to yarn she doesn't need...especially when she's just picked up 20 balls of Tweedy Silk...)
Here's what it looks like:
Rowan, please don't sue me
They're sending six skeins of it over to North Van for me.
Thanks, guys. Thanks a lot.
(I love you, really.)
