After finishing Caroline's polka dot scarf, I received another custom order from a co-worker for a green and gold polka dotted scarf, like Caroline's but thinner. Fortunately I had the perfect colors which had been purchased near the beginning of the high school football season. Remember when I was going to make high school neckwarmers, but didn't? Anyways, I worked on that scarf faithfully on Wednesday until almost all of the green yarn was gone and I needed to add one more foot! I asked a friend to check the Michael's in her city. No yarn. Not even a label where it used to be.
So today, I attended a day-long conference in the capital city. The hotel was not too far from a nice Michael's. A big Michael's. I called and YES, they had the yarn. Can you believe that I purchased only that one skein and the yarn for a custom bag I need to begin? The only other thing I bought was 2 chocolate individual candies. That's also a ritual when I go into Michael's, Waldenbooks, or Hallmark. To get one of those chocolate balls.
So folks, I do have some will power. I am still adhering to the yarn diet, but I have to admit, I looked, touched, but [thankfully] did not buy!
