Tough Choices

 Well, I pulled the trigger on my 2nd order from Paradise Fibers since they finally shipped my first order after a week.  I am getting a pound of dyed fiber and 2 batts to spin.  I'm super excited to see what they look like, although it will be a good while before I'm confident enough to use them.  I have another order ready to go for Knitpicks but I'm hesitating because I'm not sure I'll have enough time to knit everything I want to make in the next year.  And 2 of the 3 projects I picked out yarn for are sweaters I've already knit once before.  The other one is a WIP I've given up on.  The more I surf the website, the more stuff I add to my cart, then save to my wishlist, then put back in my cart.   I can't decide!  

I also updated my Ravelry page to get rid of a bunch of defunct projects I've given up on.  While I was at it, I thought about Yarn Hoarder and found that she's since taken down all of her youtube videos which is depressing.  The other person I watched consistently was Smells Like Yarn, and Ross has been attacked and thus taken down a lot of his content as well.  Sad that we live in a world where you can't be friends with strangers without a bunch of assholes ruining it for everyone. 

In today's progress, I was able to get quite a bit done on my Big Comfy Sweater while I was at work and after work.  The Susan Bates digital counter is a miracle worker for me.  Now I don't have to try to figure out what row I'm on at the end of every row.  I packed up Courtney's gifts and have to take them to the post office tomorrow so that she'll hopefully get them before Christmas.  Then a few other errands before I go out to dinner and get back home to work on my crafts.  Christmas is too close for comfort.  I want to get out my Cricut Joy and make some cards to send out on Monday, we'll see if that happens tomorrow or Sunday.  At least I'm not working this weekend.  So that's good.  I need the days off to recoup.
