Inspiration to stop the spending

What with the Tapestry Craft 30% off sale, the Little Knits sale, sales sales everywhere i'm trying to keep focused on not spending. I have stash - lots of it, but still feel compelled to buy yarn when its a bargin (and in black, preferrably superwash extra-fine merino but I digress).

To battle this, i'm trying to keep focused on the next things that I want to make - exciting things!

The Boi actually likes the Jenny cardigan i'm making at the moment (about 1/3 finished). This is a big deal - the other day he described my knits as 'chunky' - so for him to openly like a cardigan is suprising.

My next project is going to be loosly based off a Betsey Johnson skull cardigan - kinda like this.

But I want a longer one, that fits ME! Lucky I have 17 balls of Heirloom Cashmino in black in stash - also gave me the excuse to buy some white on sale at Tapestry Craft/Morris and Sons.
I can't wait to finish Jenny (and Xmas knitting) to give this a go - must keep focused!
the lousy dollar exchange rate is helping too...
