View Full Version : Yarn Obsession

Bit of a confession:

I think I am in :heart:love:heart: with yarn.
I drool over colors, textures, fibers, have major likes and dislikes.
Yet I've not knit but 3 things since teaching myself to knit back in 2005.
It is the yarn that draws me in.

I have the same kind of obession with art supplies like paints and papers, pens, pastel sticks.... I love them. But I never create art. My artistic skill is on par with a kindergardner :teehee:

So I'm thinking, perhaps I would like to learn to spin.
Handspun/handdye seems to make up the majority of my yarn lust.

Okay that is all :aww:

i love art supplies too

i would have to say go for it! I just started spinning and i love it!
i wasn't too much of a yarn addict but my fiber collection seems to be growing and growing.. :)

and there are lots of links in this thread that might help you decide what to do!

I don't think I'll ever have to step foot into a LYS again since I've started spinning! You can make anything you want and dye it however you like!


The 2 multi coloured yarns at the bottom of the picture are hand-dyed with food colouring.

Feed your addiction... You know you want to! :clink:

Don't worry about being obsessed over yarn ......

It will quickly be replaced with obsessions of rovings, slyvers, tops, raw fleece and dyes
