Hobbycraft made a liar of me!

After my recent assertion that it is very difficult for me to go yarn shopping I found myself being completely proven wrong just yesterday!  My MIL called me and asked if I would like to go to Hobbycraft (big store full of craft supplies), I initially said no due to the copious amount of snot pouring out of Cassie's nose but I was persuaded that some fresh air would do her good.  As we set off I was pretty sure I would come home empty handed, most of the stuff there I can get much cheaper online and the yarn selection is pretty poor.  MIL had a voucher to spend though so I thought I could have fun helping her choose some things.  As is always the way she came home empty handed and I came home with 400g of sock yarn!

However, as this little lot cost me just over £8 I refuse to feel bad about it.  In fact I'm pretty impressed that I managed to leave it at that.  Each of the 50g balls were £1 and they normally sell for around £4.70.  Total bargain.  And as for MIL, she was a bit disappointed particularly as she liked the look of a wooden peg loom which turned out to be just for display purposes, so (providing she doesn't get one for herself in the mean time) that's her birthday present sorted this year.

I have difficulty leaving yarn shops (or any craft store, really) without anything. I've been getting better since we moved because my stash is absolutely insane...and then there's my fiber, which I still need to spin in the first place.


I think I'm going to have to start selling things to clear out my stash.
