It's the Friday Random Ten...the yarn slut edition

I bought yarn on Wednesday thus ending a fairly pathetic attempt at a yarn diet. Last night it was 3 skeins of Blue Sky cotton in Sky that I'm going to knit up into Green Gable - I've been thinking about it for weeks and conveniently a gift certificate found itself in my possession!

I bought 2 Skeins of Gems Pearl in Fern Green from Erin under the guise of being a supportive friend but really it had been almost THREE MONTHS since I had bought yarn. I needed it. Of course, I had to help Jill de-stash so I bought almost 4 skeins of Peace Fleece from her (it's currently hiding in my desk at work) What can I say? I'm a giver....

How can something so wrong feel so right? I justified the Pearl by making a gift for my sister in law who has a fourth beautiful child coming through the pipes...no pun intended. The Peace Fleece will be another gift of some sort...aren't I good :c)

I had to click the link. That's a great t-shirt. I have to check the stash--I might have yarn for that.

WOMAN! You didn't tell me that you bought yarn right before the Knit-A-Long! Oh, the crazy decadence!!
