Once upon a time, if I was down, and I needed a little pick me up, I would just buy myself a new lipstick. Those days are over my friend -- the $24 Channel lipstick has been replaced by the $24 skein of Anne - 560 yards of luscious, vibrant color.
With my Channel Lipstick, I could get instant gratification - a few swipes, and voila! My world was now filled with color, and I felt pretty. And I could share the thrill of my new lipstick - leaving a bit on someone's cheek, or collar, or perhaps a pillow case . . .
But with Anne, while I do experience a quick rush on purchase, I am then tortured with - what is it going to become - and I just can't knit it up fast enough. As you can see, I'm starting to accumulate quite a stash (it doesn't quite add up to my Channel lipstick stash - but that's also because I tend to lose my lipsticks in my house, in my handbag, etc., and a new one must be purchased until the old one resurfaces) - and it's really bothering me - because I want to buy more, and I can't buy more if I can't even figure out what to do with what I have.
The red, black, grey, silver skein is earmarked for Jaywalkers. The gold/yellow/pink combo is already in progress as Courtney's shawl. But the 2 pretty pretty skeins of pink? I have any idea in my head, but I'm afraid it will look like crap, and I would be very upset if I blew 2 skeins of beautiful Anne. And the other 2? Please . . . my head hurts.
You can never have too many lipsticks . . . but too many Annes?
