i went to a new (for me) yarn store this weekend. stuck to my guns though, and ONLY bought a size 4 circular needle. however.....the urges were there...to SPEND, SPEND, SPEND. decided i don't need/want the latest Knitters, nor Knit 'N Style. checked out some snowflake yarn, which i loved. also they had the most fluffy soft, cuddleable scarf. it was a store kit, but i didn't have the $$ to purchase. needless to say, the kit will be mine, come next payday. my daughter wants a felted mini-purse. i thought it was just too cute. gonna go hunt for purse patterns on the web.
