Flawless Logic

Last weekend I popped into the Naked Sheep with full plans to buy 1 skein of Handmaiden Sea Silk and put a second on hold until my next pay check. A plan of moderation and non impulsive knit shopping.

The Handmaiden blew my mind - Here's some information on how they create sea silk


I came out with 2 skeins and a beautiful Lantern Moon knitting bag. To my credit - I have a plan for the Sea Silk already. I'm just waiting on the pattern. It's called Productive Stash Accumulation *not* as some might claim, Decorator Stash Accumulation.

and I got a discount - AH HA! (by discount I mean I'm one more stamp closer to being a "frequent yarn shopper" then I get a discount) How frugal am I?!

So here's my thinking: This week I'm going to make my lunch every day, eat dinner at home every night and not go out drinking until Sunday. My logic: I'm saving the money that I spent last weekend.

I've always had a touch of the dyslexia.

I do the same thing friend. Example:

I am in this course, that I convinced myself to take because my work would pay for it.

For awhile it looked like my boss changed her mind and wasn't going to pay for it.

I emailed her and told her that if it's in the budget to pay for my class I am buying an IPOD with the money. (She want me to have one so we can share songs or something)

So I understand your logic totally. Somehow my free course because work was paying for it turned into an IPOD.

It's a special branch of Logic called Justification. The best are born with The Skill, some can develop it (if they have a latent Justification Gene) but it cannot be taught.
