I'm the Sucker

I want that silk yarn - that oh so expensive 100% spun silk Tilli Tomas yarn - even though I know that Simple Knit Bodice is not going to fit like the one on the fair skinned, ever so slender, dark haired little pretty in the picture because she's wearing a too big sweater all pinned in the back to look drapey yet fitting - I still want that yarn - The Misti Alpaca Pima Cotton Silk would work just fine for so much less money but I can't stop looking at that sheeny, shiny, flowy yet substantial silk - its the dream - the dream of that perfectly drapey yet clingy in all the right places pixie princess on a hill sweater that doesn't exist for moms of three with perfectly drooping boobs and childbirth hips - and still I click on over to the Tilli Tomas and the perfectly fixed picture that cannot be(without modifications) A picture is worth a thousand words - and thousands of dollars in yarn sales.
