Treasury covetousness

I've been following the Walker Treasury Project, and each new addition makes me more and more covetous. I did look at buying them last time I was in the US, but... I really can't justify it.
I've been knitting a Clapotis and plain stocking stitch scarf since January. I already have Mary Thomas's books and quite a few others, plus unlimited access to the internet. What need do I really have for a stitch library?
Normally this wouldn't be an issue. I have an enormous number of books, and I buy them purely because I like to have them and they give me joy. But my partner and I have been toying with the idea of moving back to Australia, and have finally decided on a date - early January 2008. Given that I'm involved in a monster project at work which will be eating my sanity points right up until the end of the year, I'm not realistically going to use them before we move back home. Pretty much anything I buy now which will come home with us must have the shipping cost back to Australia factored in.

Maybe... I could order them to be sent to Australia as my first present to myself when we move home...
