Side Effect

Here's the thing:

Much as I love yarn shops that put prices on their yarns, there's a small danger that, when a semi-acquaintance/coworker/fellow knitter/[what's it called when you attended the same college, but it different years?] asks what yarn you're using, you'll hand her the label, and the fourth fact she learns about you will be that you spent $26 for a skein of sock yarn.

On the plus side, the yarn is gorgeous, the skein was enough for 2 socks (I may like good sock yarn, but I'm not crazy), and the socks are turning out very well. AND I'm about to bind off the second, so it probably won't happen again.

At least not with this yarn!

Is that two socks or two pair of socks? Marlene

That is a perfectly reasonable amount to spend on a skein of sock yarn!

Could be worse!! (but funny) . Maybe we need the shop to be like the wine stores that remove the price just before they stick your purchase in a bag for you.

At least you didn't have to confess that you bought it in four different colors....just in case.
