Obsessions, day 1

Today I am obsessing with finding yarn for a BSJ. A friend of mine from college is due for her third in November, and I just can't pass up the opportunity to knit this little wonder. I'm planning on checking out one of my LYS when I take my boys to their summer tutoring session - we'll see. I have found myself falling in love with Crown Mountain Farms Sock Hop, based on this incredible picture I saw over at Ravelry (where else)... but alas it is $18 a skein. Of course, part of me says "what's $36 for a lovely baby sweater... sigh. I think I am sinking into the depths of the dark side of yarn snobbery. I must resist! Resist the dark side... but the dark side has chocolate. Chocolate is good. Dark chocolate too. Hmmmm.... maybe I could just take a peek at the dark side. Just a little peek....

Also, Socks that Rock sells BSJ kits.

Yikes, they are forty bucks. Never mind... Being a fiber snob sucks when you don't have any money...
