And, truth be told, my mad money has been spent . . . and I feel really really guilty . . . because I did it again! I commit my most common knitting mistake--buying yet more yarn for a shawl I will never wear!
How did this happen?
- One gorgeous yarn shop,
- three aisles of hand-dyed fingering yarn (that I cannot buy at home),
- easy access to a credit card.
But in the meantime, I've been wondering . . . Why did I do this? . . . Why repeat the same mistake with as much eagerness as the first time I made it? What is it about this accessory that makes it such an exciting and repeatable mis-step?
And I've decided that buying yarn for a shawl is like buying another pair of shoes. I make a purchase, without getting naked, that I imagine will miraculously fix my wardrobe (and, by extension, my life).
I suppose there are worse delusions.
And did I mention that the shoes and the shawl match?
