I was weak - my local yarn shop was having a sale, and I managed to pick up 6 balls of yarn for a song. The only problem is, only one has a specific project slated for it. I am telling myself that its okay: they're small and don't take up much room, and I needed some reward after finishing this up earlier in the month.
36 (or more) inches square, which equals two large skeins of Red Heart out the door and off to my Grandmother's church for their never ending lapghan drive. The total volume of the newly purchased yarn consumes less space than a Red Heart Super Saver, so I think I'm still ahead by a little bit.
