I am SOOOO in trouble!!!!!

Dang that Knitty.

Did you see the new patterns? Oh! My! Gosh!

That blanket is haunting me, no lie. I just can't stop thinking about it. How in the world am I going to be able to afford that much Noro? Ouch! I know the hubby isn't going to let me splurge on that one. But maybe there is a substitute yarn to be found. Any ideas? Please? I am desperate! There has to be something right?

Other patterns are tempting me too. Like this, but yikes, a whole sweater on size 1 and 2 needles? Not sure I can do that!

This and this are nice too. But...........I am not going to cast on another sweater until I actually finish the other one. And yes, I am ticked at the sleeves again on the cardi. I think I did something wrong and the seams looks like crud.....yes, crud. I am praying I don't have to rip them. I think I will go to the LYS today and have her look at them. I hope they are fixable. Or I will have to knit them for the 3rd time.......and this will NOT make me happy. Sigh....

OMG. I need that blanket too! Maybe it could be done a square at a time as you can afford to buy a skein of Noro that you like. I've been thinking about doing some such thing with Koigu, but this would be so much better!

I did the same thing on the knitty site. I mentally spent about $400 on the project "I'll just die if I don't knit" and then went back to what I was doing. I've only revisited knitty 20 times since then. LOL. They are definately enablers!
