What exactly is it that compels me to buy more yarn than I know what to do with? I guess that's not exactly true -- I know what to do with it, I just don't have the time! I have stacks upon stacks upon bags upon bags of yarns that are waiting, begging to be knit, to be fashioned into something fabulous and unique. Yet I find myself ticking away on the same pair of socks day after day... Maybe I just need to use bigger needles?
I'm trying to understand the part of me that wants to BUY and OWN. It's the same thing with scrapbooking materials, cool shoes, and office supplies... I once told my BFF Heather that I need to shop for the life I have instead of the life I wish I had. Maybe that's the issue here. Maybe I'm buying because I don't have time to knit, scrapbook, go out to awesome clubs and dinners where I would need cool shoes... Hmmm... Worth thinking about.
What about you? Why do you buy yarn? (Or are you one of those weirdos who only shops for the project she's working on? Well? Are you? If so, don't tell me. I don't want to know.)
