Eloise knew she had made a horrible choice. She should have never come in here. Why did she let herself? “Just go in and look around” she had told herself. Yeah…like “just looking around ever happened. She needed to be supervised at all times.
Looking into her shopping cart, she knew she needed to make a choice. There was no way she was going to be buying so many balls of yarn. She had no projects that needed to be started. Why did she come into the craft store alone?! She wasn’t strong enough for this.
Ok. Let’s be rational about this. She had to form a plan. Just because the yarn is on sale, 2 for $3 instead of $5 each, does not mean I have to get some.
She looked at the pile. She had a similar colour of purple at home so that could go back onto the shelf. There was no way she was ever going to use that horrible colour of mustard yellow. Why did she even pick it up?! Back it went. Over and over she put back a ball here, two over there.
Now that just left two different colours. But eight balls in total. One was this beautiful shade of teal, and the other a soft coral that matched it perfectly. They were so pretty. She couldn’t part with them.
Then Eloise remembered that it was almost winter, and of course she needed to crochet herself a blanket to snuggle under during those cold nights that were fast approaching.
She sighed, it wasn’t a really good reason, but at least she didn’t get everything that she had initially pulled off the shelf. Eloise was happy with her restraint, and she knew that she was going to make a beautiful blanket with the two colours she had left in her cart. You can never have too many blankets.
