Stop me before I suffocate in yarn!!!

Don't you just hate when your car doesn't listen, or when your check writes itself. My personal pet peeve is when the yarn just jumps into your cart, and you keep trying to put it back, and it jumping in.

So much yarn, so little time

I'm usually shopping with my Mom when I go anywhere. She doesn't knit & can't understand my obsession with yarn. Mind you, she's one to talk considering she's addicted to scrapbooking & other crafts lol

There are 3 stores here that I frequent for my yarn collecting... Zellers, Michael's and a local store, Owl's Hollow. Zellers has much better prices & sometimes selection than Michael's I find. Owl's Hollow is a great place to find local stuff. Whenever I enter one of these stores my immediate reaction is to go running to the yarn, but knowing how that would get me kicked out of the stores I try to hold myself back & walk as quickly as I can. lol When surrounded by the yarn I just feel like grabbing all of it, putting it on the floor and lying down in it. I always reach out and touch... I just can't help myself.. I have to touch it. I don't normally make a sound, though in my mind I'm screaming & doing a happy dance. lol I also get this long lost look in my eyes apparently and have been on occasion to drool. hehe I find that whenever I head into one of those stores some yarn just happens to jump into my cart and just wants to come home with me. Who am I to refuse?! lol

"Oh, I can't live without that..." is my usual battlecry.

Life is what happens while we're listening to music.

"Oh my gosh, it's GORGEOUS!"

And into the cart it goes.

Somehow I've gotten the notion in my head, "If I buy it, they will come", meaning appropriate ideas and patterns for use of such beautiful stuff.

Seeing as I'm new, it's certainly giving me incentive to study the essentials, such as; learning how to decipher those patterns and charts!

I usually just say "Mmmmmmm" to myself, squeeze it, and, yes, bring it up to my face and smell it. Weird, I know, but I just HAVE to know how it smells. It's part of the whole pleasure package - some smells turn me off, so I won't buy the yarn. Some yarn has little or no smell. Some are pure pleasure.

This is an awesome old thread.

My m.o. is heavy petting/squishing while holding it up to my face and talking to it. "Hi, darling/sweetie/baby." Or "You're so pretty." Sniff sniff sniff. "Do you want a new home?"

I say, "Well, color me happy!"

Yes, even if it is an undyed naural color. It is not about the color it is about the happiness quotient!

My first attraction is to the color. "WOW,Hmm, I say, don't have anything that color in my closet." "Do I need it in my closet?" "Heck yes" 'It's just the thing for those grey cords!" "I shouldn't" "What about working down the stash?" "Next year" That's pretty much how the conversation goes.

I have been known to - and observed - kissing really luscious skeins of yarn. I had to apologize once to a store owner who was ... um ... taken aback by my ardor.

I think the yarn was Camelspun.

And yes, I did buy it.
