Are There Really Enough Books????

Do I have my fill books and magazines??? Nope, I love the pictures and reading patterns for future projects, I'm currently working on a four square baby blanket with a matching hat for a little guy due to join us in late October, I've had this book in my hand more than once at the bookstore so finally I asked myself "you know you'll buy this book, what are you waiting for?" I went to a LYS last week to pick up a couple of skeins for a future blanket and yup, you guessed it - I saw a new color of Sugar & Cream cotton - I continue to make different size market bags and giving them away but this new color is going to be a keeper for Lap Dog, I haven't bought it yet but it keeps calling to me from the store and I have a 50% off coupon for one skein so how can I continue to ignore the calling from those little cotton balls waiting to become a market bag for Thursday nights at the local downtown farmers market???? My goal is to finish each project I start and use the yarn I have, I'm doing well sticking to that plan for 2010 - I figure 5 skeins of an affordable craft store cotton doesn't really count......I'll add a picture tomorrow of the new color - new to me anyway, maybe you've already seen it...

Never enough craft books or any books for that matter.
When married my husband and we were ready to move my things 8 hours from where I lived to his home, he brought a truck,thinking all my things would fit in it,which they did, then we had to rent a U-Haul for all my books!!
He was shocked that a woman of 23 could acquire that many books in her lifetime.
But,they are all with me here now (plus a few more;)
