Muchas Expensivas

Don't get me wrong: I like expensive yarn. I rarely BUY expensive yarn, but occasionally I do and make something special, or keep one skein of the "good stuff" around as a pet (with mixed results).

I got a new Patternworks catalog, and I laughed out loud at this one....

Let's do the math, shall we?
$32.00 per skein.
You get the pattern free. Um, yeah. Looked like striped stockinette to me.
The pattern calls for 9 different colors...

$32 x 9 = a scarf that had better be massaging my neck while keeping it warm. And cooking me dinner. And washing my car.
