I've spent a lot of money on yarn recently. I guess I'm piling up my stash. I'll see a project I'd like to do and search for a yarn for it. If I find something on sale, it becomes mine. Like the Berocco Air yarn for the Georgiana scarf, on sale for $4.
And today, I walked to Georgetown to Stitch DC. I was super-excited to go, but discovered they have a really small selection of yarn, especially compared to Knit Happens in Alexandria (which truly is "the happy place"). I didn't get anything, but I spied a lovely mohair blend for when I'm advanced enough to attempt the Candy cardigan from Knitty.com.
Then I came home and bought more yarn online. I got the Plymouth yarn for my next project, a Harry Potter scarf, and some sale yarn for other various projects.
Speaking of projects, here are the ones I will attempt this year:
Big Bad Baby Blanket
Harry Potter scarf
Baby booties and matching hat
and three sweaters, two from knitty.com, and one from Stitch n' Bitch.
I guess I'll update on where I am on this list in the next month. We'll see how far I can get...
