Well I received my tax refund and did just what the government wants - I went on a buying binge!
Actually, in some ways it's not as bad as it looks. I've started keeping a wish list (rather than just buying things when the urge strikes) and most of that actually came off that wish list. So it was a conscious decision to treat myself.
And, quite honestly a lot of it is for planned Christmas knitting.
Then again, the Mr. Foster and Aguona Laptop kits from Knit Picks aren't in there and those really were just acting on impulse. Though in the first case it sounds like its a good thing since the kit is apparently sold out, hence the Ravelry link.
