I've been feeling a bit down lately. I'm not sure what exactly it is - if it's the weather, work, or something else that I can't put my finger on. But whatever it is, I felt that I deserved a little pick me up, and went for some retail therapy. I have to say that I was very, very good, and didn't buy any more yarn. After my huge trip during Lettuce Knit's sale, I have told myself that I need to use up at least 2/3 of that yarn before I get more. I let myself pet new yarn, and yearn for some, but I didn't get any. Here's what I got for myself.
The wallet on the left wasn't bought at Lettuce Knit, but in another store in Kensington Market. It's not that I needed a new wallet; it was totally an impulse buy. But I still love it, and have already moved my stuff into it. The book is pretty self-explanatory. I suck at finishing, so I thought this would help me out a bit. And I always wanted one of those shawl/sweater pins, so I gave in and got one.
I know retail therapy isn't really a good solution, but man did I feel happier after buying all that!
