Signature Needles

November 24, 2012

My knitting friends are great….most of the time….but also a bad influence on others.  I say this because I keep watching them knit with their Signature knitting needles and each time I see a set I become more and more envious and even begin to justify why I should buy these ‘Cadillac’ needles for myself.  It’s easy to justify…I didn’t take a vacation this year….I don’t spend money on other luxuries….I work hard….knitting is my passion, etc.  You get the idea?  So I have decided I should stay home and stay off my computer because this has been an expensive few days.  This morning I read an email from Signature needles about their contest AND free shipping!  What’s a girl to do?  So, I decided to browse their site and ended up buying not one, but four sets of needles.  I’m trying to justify it as a ‘to me, from me” Christmas gift.  Now….I wonder how long it will take for the needles to get here?  Of course, I ordered too soon because as soon as I placed the order I went back to look around the site more and found the tubes to hold the double point needles…hmmm…I really, really want some of those tubes but I don’t NEED them…please help me stay away from that site!

Yesterday I had lunch with my sister at the Olive Garden and then we did some shopping, something I vowed to never again experience on Black Friday.  I was doing very well and after four stores I had spent exactly $0.00.  But, then we went to Sam’s Club where I promptly spent $200.00 on a new Keurig coffee pot with a metal drawer underneath to hold the coffee/tea pods and a huge box of Foldgers coffee pods.  I had a perfectly good coffee pot so what possessed me to spend money on a new one?  Well, I’ll tell you, it was my sister.  That’s it!  She’s a bad influence on me just like my knitting friends.  I refuse to take responsibility of my own actions just yet….let me get these items paid off and then I won’t feel so guilty.  In the mean time, as soon as my needles come, I will spend my evenings sipping expensive, quality tea and coffee while knitting away with my luxury needles….probably watching a recorded show of NCIS.  I can’t imagine a better evening spent than knitting on luxury needles, with expensive tea and Mark Harmon!    Now….where is that mailman?

    It’s good to treat yourself with wonderful things from time to time. And, it sounds like your two big purchases work well together. Your upcoming evenings of good tea/coffee and knitting sound wonderful. I’ve never heard of those needles and I’m not sure if any of my knit friends have them. I think I’ll resist visiting the website. 😉
