I don't know about you, but in order to avoid spending money when I see something I want, I tell myself, "I could make that, I shouldn't buy it", even though I probably couldn't/won't. It's the frugal Midwesterner in me. A double-edged sword I must say! While at my highest functioning eye/hand coordination I could maybe make a few of the things I say I could(/should), but the fact is I usually don't really want to/"get around to it". Well this time I hope to gain a cool sweater and the satisfaction of not buying something because I made it, although I still had to buy the yarn which on sale was about half the cost of this American Apparel cable sweater (this usually never happens by the way).
