Tempest in a gas tank?

Like lots of other knitters, I was enamored with the new spring surprise from Knitty, Weaverknit's Tempest Sweater. Did anyone else notice that the yarn for this sweater costs about the same as a tank of gas? I had wandered over to Little Knits, the site advertised on the pattern page, and realized I could buy the yarn for little more than I'd paid for my last fill-up. This is true, but a fallacy as well. It's more true that a tank of gas now costs as much as the yarn for a moderately priced sweater. And thus there's less money (unless you're an oil baron) to spend on clothes and knitting.

Alas, I bought some yarn anyway. Photos when it arrives.
