knitting blogs: inspiration or facilitator of compulsive spending?

so yesterday i'm going through the list of knitting/crochet bloggers on kimmy's blog (hi kim!) and i happen upon the carla knitalong on the my life in stitches blog. how awesome is this sweater?

so i, being the ADD knitter i am, go and purchase the "it's a tape thing" book from the knitting garden. THEN i go to ebay and start placing bids on rowan tape yarn. i figure if i don't win this auction, i could always go to elann and pick up some katia ola as substitute. then, while i'm on ebay browsing for yarn, i notice someone has GGH Muench Mystik. earlier i had seen on creazativity a finished knitty honeymoon tank. how fantastic! so guess who places a bid on that one? you got it. so yesterday, i have total bids up to $80 and a knitting book in the mail for $17. can i ask something?

what the hell am i doing?

i'm not even close to finished with hush hush. i have a deadline of august 12th, now (i had assumed the wrong date). not to mention i have a stash the size of a small mountain. oh, yes, and i'm poor. that too. :-P is there a "knitter's anonymous" anywhere? lol...

I'm totally with you in the ADD knitter department. I'm also knitting Carla, in fact my yarn just arrived today. Hopefully in the next week or so, I'll be able to polish off some of my other knitting to make room on the needles for Carla.
