I was in a Gilmore Girls-themed swap recently. This reminded me of Rory Gilmore's decision making process. She often made pro-con lists, despite mocking of this process by her mother and various boyfriends. I shall use this process to decide if I should do another round of a sock club.
- I like getting things in the mail.
- I enjoy the process of photographing the yarn, entering it into my Ravelry stash, showing if off, etc.
- I like trying out new yarns and colors I might not pick.
- I like having lots of different yarns at hand. It's almost like having a little yarn shop in my own home.
- I like the bonus things that come with some clubs.
- I'm using money that I already have and isn't earmarked for anything more significant. If I were to ask Suze Orman if I could afford another club, I think she'd say it was okay.
- I may be close to SABLE (stash acquisition beyond life expectancy), at least with regard to sock yarn.
- Storing completed socks is close to becoming a problem.
- Sometimes I get club yarn in colors I would never pick and never use.
- Sometimes I've gotten club yarn in weights I am unlikely to use.
- Club extras include things I already have too many of (project bags and stitch markers in particular).
I'm off to the sewing machine to finish some things. I can multitask: sew and stalk the letter carrier who yarn for me out for delivery. Will I finish any socks before casting on the sweater associated with that yarn? Noooooo, I've still got Startitis!
