Remember Dearest BF? The one with the very nice qualities as a knitter's mate, but one I had started to worry about? The other day I was swatching, and realizing that I needed smaller needles to get gauge, began to add up the amount of extra yarn I would be needing. This cost is of concern to me: I have a number of large expenditures on the horizon, and can't really be plunking down the cash right now. However, the matching dye lot has miraculously appeared, and I feel like I need to swoop it all up right now.
I was voicing this dilemma aloud, when DBF said,
"Yeah, but isn't yarn more like an investment?"
He's a keeper.
