Yesterday I was reading The Harlot's blog post about the Rockin' Sock Club and of course I headed over to the site. I read, I drooled, I signed up for an account and then I calculated. I am now fighting the urge and I'm wondering why.
Do I like hand painted/dyed yarn? YES
Do I like the fact that I'll get the colours before the general public? YES
Do I like the fact that I'll get sock patterns before the general public? YES
Do I mind not having to spend 2 hours staring at a display trying to decide which colour of sock yarn or pattern to buy because someone else has made those decisions? NO
Do I like the extra goodies they are including in the membership? YES
Can I afford the cost? YES
Would I like to get a yarny present, in the mail, every other month? YES
Is it possible to have too much sock yarn? NO
So why haven't I whipped out my credit card and signed up? I really don't know. I could say that it's because I'm saving for my trip and that I'll be buying enough fibre during my holiday to choke a horse. I could say that I have already gone past the point of SABLE with my sock yarn stash and am now working on my kids' inheritance. I could say that certain plans I have for later this year may make money and time tight for me.
I could also say that I've got this in my stash.....and would like to actually knit with the yarn, once, before buying even more.
But in case that's not it, if anyone sees the snatchers please tell them I'd like my body back.
Until next time
Yours in Yarn,
