Look at these beautiful sweaters...
Can you believe these are both crocheted? I couldn't!
Now some people may consider it foolish to acquire a collection of crochet magazines if you don't actually know how to crochet...
but I like to think of it as being optimistic. And as soon as I figure out what "ch2, dc in 3rd ch from hook, dc in next ch, *ch 1, sk next ch, dc in next ch; rep from *" means, I think I'll be off and running. Actually, I already understand the "rep from *" so the rest shouldn't be too hard.
And while it's probably true that I don't really need more sock yarn...

It is getting more expensive, which means it's increasing in "value". I'm thinking it's a much better investment than the stock market right now.
There's a possibility that I might finish a pair of socks over the next couple of days... so that would be exciting. But it's also possible I'll simply remain non-productive couch decor. I seem to be quite good at that lately.
I think it's good for my self-esteem to stay positive and focus on my strengths.
