This morning as I was going through my email, I had one from Allison at Simply Sock Yarn. Even though I don’t need any sock yarn, when those emails come in from the yarn stores, I feel obligated to read them because someone took the time to write them and I never want to be rude. In Allison’s email this morning, she mentioned the newly stocked supply of Arctic Qiviut. I had to read it because . . well, it’s real hard for me to see a “Q” without a “u” behind it. I should not have read about it for several reasons:
- It’s warm! My feet would be so happy if they could get warm. I slept in socks last night!
- It’s durable!
- It’s pretty!
- It’s hard to get! That automatically makes me want it — anything that’s hard to get. I’ll spend half my day watching their website and when it’s all gone, I’ll be so happy I got some. I think that could be my hoarding
skillillness rearing its ugly head.
I normally wouldn’t pay half that much for a skein of sock yarn. But for all the aforementioned reasons, and for the fact that my dad takes blood thinners and his feet are always cold, I ordered a skein to make him a pair of socks and for the additional fact that I’m not making him a pair of socks unless I have some for my own self, I ordered a skein to make some for me.
I think I’ve reached my yarn buying quota for January but . . you never know what might happen!
