So far, I've learned that if I have a small stash, my brain says, "You need more, now!" I've already bought a significant amount of yarn this year, thanks to my apparent need to have more stash than is reasonable, a couple of interesting mystery patterns (I'm a sucker for a mystery or -along), and great sales/coupons from JoAnn's. Hopefully I like Deborah Norville Serenity Sock - I've got a lot of it!
Also I like charts and graphs. And colors.
