Yarn, yarn everywhere and nothing to knit!

Everywhere I look in my small apartment I see yarn. But somehow, I feel uninspired to create anything. So, what do I do? I buy more yarn. WHY???? I know it's wrong. I don't see how buying more yarn is going to help the lack of inspiration I feel for creating anything. All it seems to do is make my husband irritated and us broke! I've replaced my need for shopping for clothes with a desire to shop for yarn. It's a pretty sick habit I've developed. Now, I'm not content with just any yarn. I've stepped it up to the expensive stuff. Cashmere, silk, blends of that, baby alpaca...I need to stop!! I do limit myself to once a month for that though. I was telling someone the other day that when I go into a yarn store and see something I like I feel like if I don't buy it immediately it won't be there when I come back in the right amount and colors. With so many yarn stores online I don't know why I need to feel this way but I do. Is there a Yarn Anonymous or Knitters Anonymous? If so, I think I need to go to some meetings.

Repeat after me....It's okay to buy yarn. It is not illegal...yet.

Oh welcome to Yarn Addicts! I think we all feel like that. I only spend what I can afford. But I don't need it and I certainly don't have time to knit it all, unless I stopped buying for a minimum of 6 months. :)

Will I stop? Would you? ;)
