I stalk yarn stores...



I've recently developed this really strange habit and I'm wondering if anyone else does this too. Every couple of weeks I read about a yarn that intrigues me. I then end up spending hours online searching for the yarn and patterns to go with it, and looking at dozens of yarn web sites for the very best price, even though I don't have any current plans to buy it. I've filled up all sorts of electronic shopping carts.

It's like I've developed a romantic "crush" on it, and I end up thinking about it throughout the day. Then, another yarn catches my interest and I do it all over again with my new "love."

So am I psycho or do other people do this too?

(Actually, I have a co-worker who once admitted to me that when she is really stressed she goes to real stores and fills up shopping carts with stuff she has no intention of buying, and then leaves them there. So I guess I'm not as nuts as she is.)

Laugh- it keeps you sane!
