My yarn addiction

Well addiction is such a strong word; a problem? You see I wouldn't even call it that I like to buy yarn. Yes I secretly hide it away from my husband; when I do bring it out of hiding to use I do pretend that I've had it for months and he was there when I bought it. So no I don't have a problem!

My problem is I can't stop myself from walking into the yarn shop. I become distracted with all the pretty colours and I want to buy everything in sight. 

I walk along the aisles; lovingly stroking each and everyone. I can hear them calling out to me; asking to be taken home. What's a girl to do? I can't just leave them there; cold, unloved and all alone. 

It's not my fault if those little balls of joy jump into my arms want me to take them home with no project in mind.  The whole point is there may be a project soon. So really I'm saving time and energy by stocking up; saving myself from any future yarn emergencies.....saving those poor lonely little colourful skeins. 

My latest rescue

So I will continue to be a kind hearted, considerate and caring person. 

So go on people, go out and adopt a skein, but remember.....

A skein is for life not just for Christmas

  1. I think this is a problem many of us can relate to... I love to just buy yarn to look at :)

    1. I know exactly what you mean. I'd love to have a craft room of my own just full of beautiful yarn.

  2. Haha. What a great addiction to have. Picked up your blog via your post on FB Bella Coco, The Blogger Club. I'll follow along.

    1. Thank you Gail.
      I suppose there are worst addictions to have....I've decided that my collection just isn't big enough x
