Turkey Roaster Lemming

I'm not usually a lemming, except for Alfred's orange paint, and spinning with my friend Marian. That led to hand knitting, with Marian, because my handspun was too fine to knit on the ISM. Then there was weaving like Rose. But that wasn't really my fault. She offered me (or maybe gave me when I asked) a deal on a loom that I couldn't refuse.

This time I promised myself I would resist. You see, a few months ago, in the after Christmas sale at Wal-Mart, Carolyn found a GE Turkey Roaster on Clearance (Don't you love that word?), perfect for dying 2 pounds of wool/yarn/fleece/what have you, at a time.

I was intrigued, but I will NOT become a turkey roaster lemming. I saw a large stack of them at my Wal-Mart. They called to me. I sneered back, "You won't pull me in".

Occasionally I noticed the stack getting smaller. The little yellow "Roll Back" charlatan kept smiling at me, tempting me.

Then, the day before yesterday, I read Kate's blog. She admonished all Turkey Roaster Lemmings to "Go forth and drop thirty bucks kids.", promising that we wouldn't regret it.

My eyes turned into red and white cartoon spirals. My resistance was gone. I no longer had control.

So, Ms. Kate, if you happen to read this, You've done your duty to the Wool Dying Gods. Now all of your wool dying will be sprinkled with fairy dust and colors will be more wonderful than your imagination could conceive.

But I got mine for $19.99 Na, Na, Na Na, Na!!!

Good going on the roaster. I think I paid 30 something for mine.

Wow - a *cheap* turkey roaster is even better!

waaa, I paid about $35 in the pre-Thanksgiving turkey roaster rush :-(

Have fun.
