"Tell me, what is it you plan to do

with your one wild and precious life?"

Okay, it looks like I got the wrong book. I browsed the Knitter's Book of Wool last night and realized I should have gotten The Knitter's Book of Yarn. So I went back to B&N after work today and swapped them. Even steven.
***Two hours after posting: I'be been skimming through the new book and it's PERFECT!!

Funny, if I hadn't cleaned up my credit card balance, I probably would have kept the Wool one and just added this, but since I'm paying cash for everything these days (especially for luxury items), I didn't want to buy them both at the same time. Trying to stick to the good intentions.

Speaking of intentions, why does it seem impossible to get it all together? I was doing so well on diet prior to the holidays, but was using credit and collecting too much stuff. Now that I'm working on clearing clutter and not using credit, my diet has gone all to hell. It's like trying to stop more leaks than you have hands or something. What is UP with that?


  1. Glad you found the perfect book. Happy experimenting.

    Whenever I've been on a diet, I found that I had to be totally focused on it. I was never very successful - probably because I had so many other happy distractions. I'm just not that single-minded.

  2. I have to check this book out.

    I can't juggle too many things at once, either. My yarn diet is making me nauseous. I want to make this gorgeous poncho, but simultaneously had to pay for a home and plumbing inspection. I could just weep and I would if I wasn't so thrilled about the prospect of a yarn room.
