I find myself going there multiple times a day and staring at all the color choices of the handpainted yarns and then going away, because I can't decide!! I've been doing this for at least a week now!
:

Does anyone else do this??? Or, am I the only one around here who is totally indecisive, when it comes to an overwhelming array of beautiful choices??

I do that at least once a day


I have a 66 quart rubbermaid container full of yarn 99% of it from LTK, 6 skeins on order and I have a LTK gift certificate burning a hole in my pocket!

You could say I have a problem

Well, I can't just buy them all. My mom has turned my old bedroom (which was the size of a 2 car garage) into yarn storage. She has paid lots of money for the fancy closet storage units, and had them installed not only in the walk-in closet, but along 2 of the walls of the room as well. She has more downstairs in plastic tubs around her recliner. My dh is deathly afraid of this happening to us. I really don't like clutter, so it's not likely it would, but I'm only *allowed* to have yarn for about 2 projects or so in advance, or he starts to freak out on me! :LOL

Otherwise, I would have bought about 5 skeins by now. But, then that would be 5 projects in advance! I'd have to figure out how to hide them, and then that would be too much like my mom! :LOL

I actually broke down and made a decision. I bought 2 skeins today. I got the "Guiness" cause my dh loves the beer and it looks so boyish. And, the woodland fairy. I hope that one doesn't look to girly! :LOL If it does, I'll just have to make something for someone else and buy more yarn!

NYC is lovely, but Melissa and Azrec are screaming for me to buy them. The only problem is that I just bought a bunch of yarn this week, so I'm about 10 projects ahead in yarn...I'm running out of room!

Nah, I have to touch the yarn. I have a real thing about buying yarn online, I only buy yarn that I've bought in RL in the past. Very rare exceptions, for alpaca or silk or angora from Ebay, but I really feel like I take a chance with those. I occasionally ogle yarns for color, but I never buy because I have to handle them to get suckered in.

However, Theresa lives really close to me. One of these days I just might meet her and touch her yarn in person and then I'm sunk...
