Jimmy I have a problem

During my many hours knitting I needed something to break up the steady pace. I decided to look at Jimmy Beans Wool Watching on my iPad while knitting my orders- big mistake.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Jimmy's Wool Watcher, it's like winning some coveted item on ebay. You wait, you watch and then you pounce as quickly as you can hit "add to cart" button. You can be sniped which adds to the thrill of the hunt. The discount varies from 30% to as much as 75%.

Let's just say that upon my last delivery from Jimmy Beans there was a personal note with my order thanking me for my umm. uh.. many purchases. It seems that I have had a package or two delivered from them every week for the last month. I had no time to look at the yarn or to see how much I had ordered. I mean 30% of Madelintosh who can resist that really???

Now that all of my orders have been knit I had the time to look at all the yarn I had ordered. Let's just say I am going on a yarn diet. lol. In my defense, I did order each skein with a particular project in mind which is a good thing right?

Jimmy I am sorry but I am going to have to break up with you for a while. It's been great but now it's time to move onto some of those projects I planned to knit.. No worries I am sure I'll be back but not any time soon..
