The boy's geekiness is rubbing off on me. I just realize that I have spent the last hour making an Excel spread sheet to figure out who has the best price on some Zephyr. I've figured out the price per ounce, per pound, and amount needed for the intended shawl for each company selling it. I am such a geek. You have to understand, my love is the type of person who has a ton of charts and graphs relating to our finances. Frankly I don't have any desire to see a graph of our mortgage until we are paying more principle than interest. It just depresses me. He just loves that stuff...what a sicko!
Me, I became and artist so I wouldn't have to do math. Yeah, that worked out real well for me. Why didn't they use knitting to teach me math? I'm doing all sorts of addition, multiplication, division not to mention geometry and algebra. I still haven't figured out how knitting could have helped me pass chemistry.
So back to my Zephyr dilemma. Can I justify buying a whole pound because the price per ounce (and therefore the shawl) will be cheaper than buying just what I need for the project? I think we all know the answer to that, but I still need to convince that little practical beast inside of me.
Speaking of beasts...here's a few pictures of mine. Aren't they cute little demons. Isis is the black one and Loki is the grey.
