I AM A YARN ADDICT !

There, I’ve admitted it.  I just can’t pass up a good deal on yarn…. or a good color…..or a great fluffiness…..or a silky feeling yarn …..or a wool yarn…..

Well, you get the picture.  I have more yarn than I could ever use in a lifetime.  I need to downsize it.  Will I ever do that????  Probably, not.  I like to look at it, I like the way it feels, I like to think of all the possibilities it represents.

I’ve had some yarns for years and eventually I use it to create something great.  Sometimes the yarn tells me what it wants to be and sometimes I try to force it to be something it is not.  Then I end up with something gawd awwwfullll  UGLY!

Some yarn is just clown barf.  It doesn’t matter what you try to make, it still looks like a clown barfed it up 3 times over.

And sometimes you come across some yarn that is just perfect for a certain thing you want to knit/crochet.  It doesn’t belong in any other pattern or plan you have but just that one thing.

I found some Vanna’s Tapestry yarn.  It is perfect for mittens.  It even looks good as a scarf or socks, but it is definitely great for mittens.

This would look awful in a sweater (at least to me).

Then there is this yarn, Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable.  I’ve tried it in other patterns…mehhh…did not look good. But as this shawl, it looks great.

Then there is this yarn, Knit Picks Chroma Worsted.  It is great in this shawl. Tried it in a sweater and frogged it.  Not good in a sweater.

Anyway, I guess I will always be a yarn addict.  I just love it!  It makes me happy.

  1. Completely understand the trial and error of certain colorways! Somehow, I ended up with about 4 skeins of this blue, purple, and hot pink yarn. I couldn’t figure out how to use it… I ended up using some for unicorn hair. Haha! But I still have a ton left… what to do?

    • Some yarns are difficult to find a use for. I have used some as stuffing inside another project because I could find no other use for it. I don’t regret doing that. Some colors are just not for me and I won’t work with something I dislike. Good luck on finding a use for it.
