Yarn Obsession
Bit of a confession:

I think I am in love 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

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

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!

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




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