Saving Gas

This is my story and I am sticking to it.
I went to Salt Lake City today and while down there I figured I would go to Three Wishes one of my favorite yarn shops. They have tons of cones yarn, for weaving and machine knitting. Among others there was a cone of cotton yarn that I spotted the very first time I went there two and a half years ago. I would always put it down and convince myself that I really did not need it. Today I was determined to get it if it was still there. While at it I saw other colors I liked and wanted and thought well with the price of gas I should just get them, that way I will have them at home and will not have to drive all the way down here every time I want to knit something on the machine. Some way some how I ended up bringing home 14.5 lbs of machine knitting yarn.
It's ok because I am saving gas..........knowing my husband I know he will agree.

Uh-huh. I understand this perfectly. It's the same rationale for ordering more yarn online to get to the cutoff for "free" shipping. Quite logical.

Was the yarn green? That's worth double points!

It's only logical. Yeah, I know it's women's logic, but it still made sense to me :-) Tell him you are helping the economy. Very patriotic as well as economcal.

Sounds familiar. I have once bought over 30 kilos of yarn, because the yarn was very, very reasonable priced and more I bought more I saved...

Great way to be environmentally friendly! And stash friendly too.

Quite understandable. How do you think my stash grew to its current size?
