My love of acronyms is why I almost titled this post "S.E.X. in the Morning," but fear of lurking perverts trolling the Web and gawking at my children forced me to edit. In this case "s.e.x." stands for "stash enrichment expedition." Translation: yarn shopping!
I ran out to Hobby Lobby for three small skeins of cotton yarn for a very specific project. I did not need more yarn. I have half a dozen knitting books and a binder filled with printouts of free online patterns and I still don't feel competent enough to make anything more challenging than a scarf. I also have a 3" x 5" card listing planned projects (meaning I have the yarn and correct sized needles and pattern), which could easily have me knitting through the 2012 Summer Olympics with no further purchasing.
Like I said, I went out for three particular skeins for one particular project Yes, indeed, I did. Can somebody explain, then, why I came home with this?
