A few weeks ago I made a pledge. It was a pledge to take a break from buying magazines. I hoped I could hold out for a few months, but I think I made it about a week. 

Yes, Vogue Knitting was my undoing. I picked up up rather nonchalantly thinking that I could just walk away. The patterns weren't that great. Until I came to these.

I walked away that day, but I couldn't stop thinking about these sweet little cardies. My biggest mistake was to write a post about them. For a solid week, I was faced with these pictures every time I looked at my own blog.

One day I just couldn't take it anymore. I snapped, headed out to the store & bought the darned magazine.

Of course, then I had to order the yarns too.

It was a slippery slope that led me to this.

I am a very bad woman. 

Perhaps with good intentions? A nicely decorated house and patio is always welcome. And Glamour always has good advice on, er, love & sex of course.

Yes, I know. I need help and lots of it.

On a completely different note, a few posts ago, I mentioned that I was thinking about revealing my name on my blog. I'm still on the fence about it. Let's just say that MJ's guesses were very, very close & leave it at that for now.

I keep piling up certain magazines too. I have a subscription to Today's Parent (which I read when I have time), an expired subscription to Style at Home (which I rarely read). My greatest Achilles Heel is Scrapbooking Etc. I hunt it down on a monthly basis. I love that magazine
