The Road to Perdition...

...is paved with this:



I know, I know. I now have absolutely no credibility. But I stood in that shop (and the only reason I was there in the first place is because the viper wanted to go--now you know why I call her the viper in the nest!) and I set eyes on this yarn, and I had no shame. I had to buy it, because it's NORO SOCK YARN!! Do you KNOW how stinkin' hard this is to get around here?? I knew I would have to confess on this blog, and I didn't care because I knew that you would have done the same thing. Maybe not for Noro sock yarn, but for whatever your weakness is. At least that's what I tell myself. Please don't disabuse me of the notion that all other knitters are as easily led astray.

So...this is project #30 in the pile beside the chair. At least it's a nice round number now. And I won't, I really won't buy any more yarn for new projects. This will be the next goal yarn (after the Last Purchase yarn, which is no longer the Last Purchase now, is it? I'm darned if I'm going to go back and correct that in previous posts!) I'll allow myself to knit these socks when I've finished 25 projects. Talk about justification...

And, hey--I finished another project last night: #13, Petite Exemplary #1. So it's 3 projects down, and only 27 to go, at least in this pile. THEN we tackle the projects hiding upstairs, and that's not for the faint of heart!

Must stay out of yarn shops....

Noro Sock Yarn...Wow! Now, say for instance, somebody wanted to get some of that.... about how much would a person have to pay for it? Seein how it is so hard to come by around here.

BTW, decent photo. A little muted though. I imagine the original was way better.

It was $18.95. We are crazy. Would you ever pay that much for a pair of socks under any other circumstances?? And you're right--the actual yarn is a bit brighter & more saturated in color--really gorgeous.
