It had to happen. As soon as I typed "I don't need more yarn", I was off looking for more yarn.
There's a knitalong I'm doing next month that recommends a specific yarn. I found a shop online and ordered it. At the same time, I discovered new Arne & Carlos colorways. They were on sale. The only downside was the colorways I liked the best were sold out. I have controlled myself so far and not looked for them elsewhere. I did buy one of the second favorite colors along with a Kaffe Fassett colorway.
The shipping notice email arrived. I didn't notice that the specific yarn comes in more than one weight. I accidentally ordered laceweight and I wanted fingering. I really hate it when I do things like that. I wonder if it's a basic senior moment or something worse.
I went to Ravelry to get the yarn's name and made a neat discovery. There's button in a yarn listing for showing all buying options. If you click it, you can do price comparisons. Another excellent feature from Casey the code monkey. Thank you, Casey! I found it for $5 under the price that most places sell it.
I want to do the Coffee Cantata socks which take 500 yards for the large size. The shop had their house brand yarn on sale and it was 500+ yards for less than you would pay for a standard 400 yard skein. My fingers are crossed that I read everything correctly.
I think it is time to put down the knitting and pick up my Nintendo 3DS and pop that Concentration Training program in.
Now where did I put the charger?
