I don’t care what yarn.
I’m just in the mood to buy the stuff.
People. I think I need some kind of 12-step program.
I have way more than enough yarn. I have boxes of it. Baskets of it. Shelves stuffed with it. Drawers packed with it. I have a major project on the needles right immediately now. I have a beautiful sock in my purse. I have cotton, wool, acrylic, alpaca, just about everything except cashmere. (Hmm, that is a serious hole…perhaps I should…no! no! resisting…resisting…)
I even have some mohair.
I have lace-weight. I have worsted. I have bulky! I have my very own homespun, which
SABLE? People, I am beyond SABLE. Stash Acquisition Beyond Great-Grand-Children’s Life Expectancy, that’s what I have over here.
Somebody must tell me: How can I put up a firewall between me and Webs, KnitPicks, Rabbitch’s place (I even have a skein of deliciousness sitting beside my knitting chair, where I can fondle it and promise great things once I have finished the Claudia Circus socks), AND WORST OF ALL, eBay!?
eBay…with its tempty auctions of HUGE LOTS MIXED YARN…
I am so low sunk that…oh Lord, the shame…well. It was like this. I was cleaning out my minivan? And I found a receipt? From the D&D store? Where my Husband went this weekend, to pick up some miniatures?
And he had spent $120 of his own allowance money on miniatures to paint?
And…I immediately thought…
Wow…that’s, like, a whole sweater’s worth…
And then I started thinking it would only be right that I head over to the LYS to see what I might be able to get with my $100 allowance (which has actually built up to almost $1,000 on account of because I have been that holy for that long).
Because, you know.
HE spent $120 on HIS hobby.
I think I need professional help, is what I’m saying.
I have no room for more yarn.
I have no need for more yarn.
What I need to do is quit @*^&@ing blogging about yarn-lust and go make something with yarn, thus opening up more room for yarn in my bedroom.
That seems like a sound plan.
And I will do that.
Right after I check out just one more LARGE MIXED LOT ASSORTED YARN NICE!!! auction…
(GodHaveMercyOnMeASinner, I just remembered I have forty skeins of light and dark blue and gray Red Heart under my bed…) (I remembered this because I was looking at a lot of forty skeins of assorted Red Heart and thought, Oooooh, I could make a cool afghan out of that!)
