I couldn't resist

I know I said that I wasn't going to buy any more wool, but......

I had to get some buttons, so off to Atkinsons I go and as I walk in the door I see a sign. It says "We pay the VAT Friday, Saturday and Sunday". Interesting I thought, that's worth 13.5%.
I got my buttons with a brief pause by the wool, the wool I liked knitting with so much I said I would like to make something for myself. Then on the way to the checkout I had to stop again, and this jumped into my arms.
So the wool and pattern was reduced, and then the VAT was discounted, so I couldn't resist. Could I?

Can't pass by an opportunity like that! It would be almost criminal.

Resistance is futile when the yarn is calling your name! Can't wait to see what pretties you make with it.

Nope, you couldn't resist. Sometimes yarn just has to be bought.

No dear, it would have been foolish not to take advantage of a sale. This will make something beautiful for you.

Nope, definitely not. It would have been wrong to leave that yarn behind :)

Wool is like fabric...you can never have too much! And that is a beautiful color! Can't wait to see what you make out of it! :0)
