OMG, I'm home, I'm HOME!!!
Yarnaholic, that's me. Wanna hear the depth of my sickness?
One of my kid's teachers wants me to make her a poncho. She is spending this week finding a pattern she likes and buying her yarn. She is trying to decide amongst several patterns, and even though I am too busy right now to really make her even one poncho, I suggested that she choose two or THREE and I will make them all!!!
Why? Why did I say this? I think........I just want more yarn around, even if it's not mine. I find myself hoping she buys all the yarn at once so I can have it around here for a few weeks.
Here's another example: My brother in California is a master spinner/weaver, but also spins his own wool and dyes it with stuff like real indigo and rose madder, etc. He has been planning to send me a little bit of yarn for months now, and at mail time I dash out to the mailbox like a madwoman; Is it here yet? Is it here yet?
So you'd think I was low on yarn myself, what with all this wishing for yarn. Nope. My walk-in closet is full of cone yarn right now like a yarn store.
There is no hope for me. And I like it that way.[/quote]
