Not buying yarn is pretty easy when you're talking about $20-$25 skeins. It's pretty but at that price point, for me anyway, it's not all THAT hard to resist. But $3 skeins of yarn? STRIPING yarn no less? Ugh.  My will is no match for that. :(  I had gobbled up 4 skeins before I even knew what my fingers were doing, tap tap tapping away on the keyboard. I was like HEY, WHATCHA DOING DOWN THERE WITHOUT ME , FINGERS? Ohhhhhhh, buying yarn! I see. *snort*

I am a weak, weak ass, weak tea person. Heard it here first. lol

Anyhoo. This swirl scarf is sucking the knitting mojo out of me a bit. I mean, look at this thing:

It looks like a wadded up used tissue. Prettily colored, yes. But used and wadded up nonetheless. It's not very fun to knit and I'm doing my best to stay away from doing the The Math in my head of how many more swirls I have left before I am done. (Note: I don't really need to do The Math to know it won't be any less than 50 more to go as this sucker has three rows and I'm not even done with ONE yet...........which is a little depressing, I have to say.) I'm going to solider on until I have one row complete, wash and block the ever loving holy hell out it (aka pin it flat to within an inch of it's life so it dries pretty) and see if that helps with the mojo to go onward. If it doesn't then I think I'm going to put it on the back burner where I just knit one swirl here and one swirl there when I'm in the mood. I'd have it done by NEXT winter that way at any rate, right?

Officially Put On Notice: Sirius Radio. I just figured out today that those toads won't let you listen online for 'free' anymore as part of your (very much paid for) subscription, that it's now $3 extra a month? PFFfffffffttttt, I say! I've already been paying for TWO SUBSCRIPTIONS for almost five years and you can't throw in a little online usage with that? I don't listen online very often but it was  handy here and there. I'm certainly not dishing out ANOTHER $36 on top of the $175 I pay them already for it. NO, no, and what's that word I'm looking for? Oh right - NO! *grumble*
