So… I bought yarn.

*ducks to avoid objects being thrown in this general direction*

Friends, I have come to a great realization: the trick isn’t to avoid buying yarn. It’s to avoid the yarn store in general. D’uh. That said – I swear the universe is conspiring against me.

I take photography on Wednesday nights, and the school is in the same block as one of my favourite yarn shops. Now, this store normally closes at 6pm (around the time I would get into the neighbourhood.) But on Wednesdays? No, on Wednesdays they extend their hours to 9pm. This only started in January (same week as my class began.)

Does the universe want me to purchase yarn? Or, is this some sort of cosmic temptation test?

Truth is, I don’t care. I can generally avoid. But I decided I wanted to make a set or two of fingerless gloves (one for me, one or more as a gift) and I needed something more. And in this colourway, I ask you: who could really resist?

I’m also thisclose to being finishing the socks… I got to the end of the toe, only to realize that I’d totally forgotten how to do Kitchener Stitch. To I go…

Goodnight :)
