I confess it ...

I broke down and bought the Autumn Lace pattern. And I've only been saved from another bout of what the Yarn Harlot calls "startitis" (a disease that causes a crafter to start new projects despite already having lots of half-completed ones needing finishing) because all my 2mm needles and interchangeable tips are otherwise occupied and while I have yarns of the correct weight in stash I don't have enough of any of them ... this sucker requires 1200 metres of lace weight and the largest quantity I have in a single colourway is 914 metres. Plus none of the stuff I have is a long colourchange dyejob and I think that colouring is an important part of the look of the thing.

And with the city currently in whiteout conditions and a -33C windchill with more of the same forecast for the entire weekend I don't think there's any danger of me sneaking out to a yarn store in the next couple of days. Safe from online lace shopping for the moment too ... my Paypal account is currently in single digit and the money transfer-in-progress won't likely show up until the middle of next week (yes, I know overage can go onto my credit card but I have a personal rule that I will only use cash-that-is-present for Paypal purchases and I don't want to piss myself off by breaking it)
