Yay for Sock Clubs....as if I need more

For whatever crazy reason, I thought that if I signed up fora bunch of clubs this year I would slow down my yarn acquisition. My reasoning fall somewhere in the lines of that if I don't feel the obsessive need to check out what everyone else who's in the sock cubs is getting, I'll spend less time perusing yarn websites and feel less of an overwhelming need to compensate for my sadness. As of now, I have received two club packages. I have also placed 2 orders for Vesper sock yarn, one with Wollmeise, one with Joann's, and one with Yarnmarket. Oh well. To be fair to myself, the Joann's order was for the red yarn-of-hell, with which I am to duplicate stitch the aforementioned "B". For the sake of my sanity, I'll just leave that one alone for now.
On to the yarn goodies!

This was my first time seeing the Duet sock yarn in person. I've heard fabulous things, though. This is my second round of the Booty Club, and I've loved everything I've received thus far. I'm fairly certain that my first ever BMFA Rockin' Sock Club package will be shipped this coming week, so stay tuned for my dip into mania when it arrives.

Whenever I get the urge to buy more yarn I go look and touch my current stash and remember all the projects I want to make with what I already have. Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't, but I am sure it has saved me hundreds of dollars.
