OK, I need some support/advice here.
My yarn stash is getting quite pitiful after all of my holiday knitting. Well, this is a subjective thing as my husband swears that I have "more than enough yarn for six people"! :shock: Yeah, right! I'm going to have to show him some of Ingrid's photos and maybe he will stop with that nonsense!
Anyway... I was checking out Knit Picks and started creating a Wish List. It's up to about $70 with just WOTA and "one or two other things"! So... should I do this? I have never tried the WOTA and am finally taking the plunge to try the Felted clogs (I know, can't believe that I haven't done them yet either!) and... this wool seems perfect! Once I started picking colors, I just couldn't really stop myself :oops: So... should I do this? I am really not looking for the financial aspect of things - I'm wrestling with that independently - but more from a standpoint of, "This is great yarn for felting and you won't regret it" or "Just try a little bit before you go all out, you may not like it". I read Amy's post about the pilling sweater and am keeping that firmly in mind. This is fairly project specific (felting stuff) but... I'm unsure. :??
Next question: how should I do this? Should I use the web site and a credit card? Should I phone them? (I have tried waiting for the "Yarn Fairy" to show up at my house but ... she obviously got lost at one of your homes and is gonna be a no-show.) Has anyone had problems with either of these methods?
This is kind of a big purchase for me - I usually sneak in one or two things as a time. So... I am looking for your advice, suggestions or cautionary tales. OK, what do you think? To buy or not to buy?
