So I've had a bit of disappointment the last few weeks, and a frustrating day yesterday :verysad:, and I've decided today to make a nice trip to a nice yarn shop to deal with all this. I tried fondling my stash, which has grown recently with the summer swap (!), but it just didn't cut it. I shouldn't spend the money, and I promised myself I wouldn't, but a few skiens and a few odds and ends can't hurt? Besides, I NEED a few things for my swap pal ....:teehee:

I'm just wondering, though, is this a GOOD thing, or a very BAD thing? I mean, I'm coping with my ordinary life by thinking about pretty colored fibers??!!!?? Is this wrong?:shrug:

Maybe don't think of it as good OR bad..just something you enjoyed or would enjoy? I know what you mean.. I have stash things I know I really need to use but then I spy an image of yarn somewhere and just crave the newness of it. Maybe it's a 'looking for-ward' thing :-)

Yarnapy works better than any anti-depressant I've heard of!!:lol:

I knew I could count on you guys to make it all alright!! :hug: I have some lovely new things to use as part of this, ahem, yarnapy, and I now have itchy knitting fingers. Some wonderful wool in the woods, and k1c2 tye-dye!! Pictures later!!

There's something about new yarn - you know, knitting goes on, life goes on, and there are always new things on the horizon ....

LOL except for me as an Aussie who says nappy and not diaper, a yarnapy sort of sounds like a knitter with a soaker on :roflhard:

My family calls it " Mom needs yarn fix" :lol: It does happen offten to me too but it could be worse. The money I used to spend on Cigaretes goes for yarn now :)

You mean, you just don't take the knitting with you??:teehee:


Ana - your family should be so happy! yarn is so much healthier than cigarettes - and so much prettier too!
