Confessions of a raging yarn addict…

I spent $100 at the local yarn shoppe today.

*blushing* P.S. What are your luxury splurges?

    I spent $200 on a kitchen faucet today . . . and it was totally worth it!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. HomeMadeOriginals:

    I know that is easy to do…I spent $60 at mine today. My yarn was lovely alpaca for 5 custom orders for neck warmers so it wasn’t quite as decadent as my usual yarn purchases. What are you going to make?

    Oooh! I would actually LOVE to buy a new kitchen faucet! I am jealous. :P

    I actually broke into the first skein last night while sitting in the ER with my 5 yr old! He got his middle finger slammed in the door at his Nana’s house. :(
    After two hours in the hospital, he left without any broken bones and a fat bandaged finger and I left with a crocheted hat for my sister! :) It made the time pass more quickly. ;)

    Sorry to hear about your son’s finger but you are a woman after my own heart carrying yarn with you everywhere you go.

    What gorgeous colors! Good for you–you’ll put it to good use. I’m shameless in greenhouses and bookstores.

    Well, I have to say, as I am SURE you know, that yarn is one of my top splurges. Also chocolate and coffee, though thankfully since I am not a fan of cat crap (Kopi Luwak) those are never too expensive. :)

    My big splurge this month was just under $200 for a repair on my Lexus instrument panel so I’ve been driving without any idea how fast I’m going or how much gas I have in my tank…fun! It’s quite unnerving to look down at your dash and see a dark cavern of wires and cobwebs, but hopefully by Friday my freshly repaired instrument panel will be here. Ahhhh! Heaven.

    The Matron can barely spell yarn, let alone knit it. Her splurge? Designer clothing for under $5 at ValuThrift. LOTS of it.

    i’d love to splurge on yarn. i’m still with red heart and lion brand b/c it’s what i can afford. i’ve been better about not blowing my money on books like i used to. crafts and hobbies in general are way too easy to splurge on.

    hope your little one’s finger is feeling better!

    I have to admit I bought yarn yesterday! I love fabric, trims, yarn…anything I can use to make something with! I would love to learn to make jewelry…someday!
