Flunked the De-Stash Test

I knew I couldn't wait until September, and even early September at that! That's too much to ask a knitter and yarnaholic.
So, my downfall happened when buying yarn for my swapee from GYS. I saw this great yellow, buttery coloured cotton, and had to have it for a terrific top-down raglan shirt.
Far too tempting to save for later.
One downside: I seem to have gotten a bit of a knitting injury. At the base of my right thumb I have a bit of a bump, and it feels like a knotted muscle. Damn cotton! (I'll blame it on the cotton. I've never used it in large quantities before, and am finding it a bit cumbersome).
