Lately I've been griping to anyone who will listen about how I want to knit this thing, and how I don't have enough yarn [read, yardage] and how can I get more yarn when I don't really *need* this yarn and blah-blah-blah and how zomg this project uses an insane amount of lace weight yarn and how so many patterns call for x amount of yards/meters and how lace yarn sellers/makers sell them in weird amounts like 25 grams [that's right, right? a wee amount?] and 50 grams [which I'm getting used to seeing, and can tell if it's the right weight yarn by how many yards are in that 50] and sometimes even more grams but those grams no matter how many, not even if you have a whole pound on a cone, are never never enough yards. Ever. And if you're a patient mis-fortunate friend then you get like a zillion links of pretty yarns and complaints about how I'd have to either buy two big hanks of it and barely use any of the second because the first is 1200 yards, or 1350 or some huge amount but not enough [i need 1750] and why isn't 1750 easily divided or multiplied into anything? I could just spend $50.50 plus shipping and get some of this. I'm insane enough at this point to almost think it's a good deal, just to end the damn thing. yarn is here I'm thinking Backstabber is a good color, aren't you?
