View Full Version : I think I have an addiction

I recently took up knitting again after years off. I've been finding wonderful projects on line and buying the patterns/yarn. I now have about a dozen projects lined up and no time since it's Christmas. But I think the buying of beautiful yarn has become an addiction!

It will become much worse in time. You'll buy yarn like nothing else :D

Glad you found the way back to knitting

And sadly, or not so sadly, there are no 12 step programs for us.

I don't need one. I can quit any time I want. I just don't want to. :teehee:

Here's a sneaky plan...from one yarn addict to another -
what about wrapping up a few projects, adding some knitting needles, the address for knittinghelp.com and giving the unmade item as a gift? You may end up being responsible for introducing another woman, man, girl, or boy to this fun past-time.

It's not an addiction, it's a way of life :)

LOL - yup, addicition - way of life - whatever it is, we like it that way! And "only a dozen?" :D You'll be amazed at how fast your stash of patterns and yarn will grow. Welcome back!

I like my addiction!!! It is better then drinking, drugs and smoking. My hands and brain are to busy to do them. I HAVE NEVER BEEN INCLINED TO DO THEM AS KNITTING AND CROCHET ARE BETTER!!!! I think if I ever tried and I won't that I would poked my eye out with a knitting needle, lol!

I say get a cup of tea, sit down and knit and ponder the wonderful yarn you've been buying and all of the projects you're going to do. I'm down to my last 4 projects before I go on a yarn buying spree.

After the New Year I've got scads of friends having babies. Got to gettin' knittin'!
