I hope this is true! Because it's still pretty hard for me right now! I've decided to try knitting soakers for myself to satisfy my hyena lusts, so we'll see how that goes.

Hey, Butterflymom, maybe you can get your mother to teach you how to knit and crochet while she's there, if you don't know already. Then you can keep yourself stocked up on soakers/shorts/longies. Even better--you can get so good at them that you sell them on e-bay for lots of money that can be fairly spent on more fluff!

Knitting my own soakers pretty much cured me of the need to buy wool. I still REALLY want a Luxe Baby lime green or yellow wool (sigh) and I still love Mosaic Moon but that's it... oh, and I need another Celtic Wool to replace the one my WOW bar ruined but really, that's not too bad for my ISO list. Knitting and sewing are a great way to take up your brain space.

Can I get on the wagon with a small disclaimer? :
I still need a few more SOS and maybe some RB fitteds?!
Oh, and a Mosaic Moon soaker?! That's all, I swear...

Oh my! Listen to me! I think I am in serious denial. I feel like I am running behind the wagon. :LOL
Just don't back up and run me down...

*sigh* Can I hop on too?

I'm about to sell my "Got Wool?" KnitInYourPants and Deep Rainbows Mosaic Moon (still haven't decided if I'm doing Ebay or the TP.. I think Ebay) and I want to save the money I make for the Fluffymail stocking or a few others that I know I'll *need* to buy later and work exceptionally well for us (like Celestial Baby or Sellin Threads).

Sooo.. I need on this stinking wagon! Everything looks so nice! Man, I'm afraid of TuesdayNoon.. Midday Faire on Tuesday!

I found an all-hemp-smooth-side muttaqin dipe in that cute outer space print that I've been wanting to find forever, and I walked away! I've wanted to try a muttaqin for ages, and one without velour or microfleece, and they are on SALE with low, flat-rate (2.30!) international shipping, and I DID NOT BUY IT! Oh that outer space knit print is adorable, someone go grab it.

I need you guys to pat me on the back and tell me how great I did or I might just go back over to Muttaqin and may not be so strong the second time around....

Umm, I'm kinda still on the wagon. I was checking out the different scents at flicker n suds & they were open for a custom slot! So, i HAD to sign up for one! But, a wool soaker was definitely on my "needs" list, so i'm still pretty good

I hate this thread!! I keep seeing "this is what I passed up" and then I want to buy them. I've already had to climb back on the wagon TWICE (I'm getting dusty and bruised) but I'm really trying.

Like I'd want to try that outer space muttaqin.... Down, girl. Down!

You aren't a failure, Jamie. You just need to continue to scale back, which you are doing, and sell, which you are doing. We're all proud of you! s
