Yarn confusion, too many choices

The next thing on my already too long to-do list is to write down the yardage/ounces/grams of what types of yarn (and in which colors) I need for the projects I plan to make. Why would I want to be that anal about it? I went a yarn store a few days ago, stayed there for a solid hour boring my 16-year-old daughter near to tears, wandering around dead set on picking the perfect yarn for one of the three projects I had in mind. I'd be all set to check out, then remember that I needed bulky instead of the worsted weight I had picked. Then we'd go back, I'd look and look, then decide to doing something else. I had confused myself so bad by the time I left, that I ended up buying some okay yarn in a color that isn't really gonna look that great. . . So, next time I'm either gonna go prepared with an overly detailed list or chain myself to the computer and buy the exact right thing on the internet.

I signed up for
Swapbot! Sounds like fun, so you might want to check it out. I didn't know it existed until a few days ago. I signed up for a letter swap, so I'll see how it goes.

I am really planning to redecorate this blog as soon as I can squeeze in a spare minute. I want a new background, a different picture, and I want to add links to some of the cool blogs I visit. Hopefully it'll get done by this weekend. We'll see. I have to do that and figure out what to do with the too blue yarn I just bought and don't really like . . .

I am such a pita myself when I go to my LYS... hemming, hawing, walking around and seeing everything 4x (I'm sure they think I'm lifting mdse, as long as I'm there and as much time I spend staring at it all!) :) You're definitely not alone!

Shelley, Thanks for the links to the blog template sites. As you can see, I changed mine and I think it looks sooo much better than before.
