Is this officially an obsession?

I think I have a problem, ladies and gentlemen.
You see, I am currently working on a new hat on the Knifty Knitter, and my loom tool is all silly, and the rubber grip is sliding off the metal. The tool itself is only a couple dollars, but I would have to go into the yarn section at Michael's to pick it up. This would mean that I am tempted to buy new yarn. I never go to Michael's without the coupon from the flier. Ever since they started making them only available online, I haven't gone yarn shopping since I don't have a printer.

I then weighed yarn against getting groceries.

Am I crazy? I haven't gotten groceries in... Three weeks? I live on my own, so I am usually pretty happy with soup and pasta. But, I have hardly any fruit and veg, no bread/tortillas/pitas, no cheese, and very little of other things that I eat regularly.

I think I need to go get real food and check my head while I'm at it. Yarn shopping can wait.


  1. I don't think you are the only one who thinks like this. I know I'd rather buy rings for chainmaille or beads then eat...eating is so over-rated! lol

  2. do you get your veggies from the farmer's market? one of the last ones is the day after tomorrow.

    i signed up to michael's site a million years ago and i have never received any online coupons. it's kind of disappointing.

  3. I think the yarn versus the groceries is a perfectly logical contemplation.

    But never, never can yarn shopping wait. After all, the grocery store will always have some sort of bread, milk and vegetable for sale but yarn lots are a precarious thing!
