Yes, of course it's love! When I see a love match nestling in a yarn store shelf, I want to clutch it to my heart in a frisky full-frontal fiber squeeze. Can't help myself. Sometimes I imagine laying on the floor with luchious yarns tumbling all over my body. Hmmm...I just re-read all that and I think I'd better cool off....

Yes, Jane, that's too hot of a scene for this early in the morning! LOL

Now you've made me want to leave work immediately to go home and fondle my stash!

It's true, Anna: YARN LUST UNLEASHED. Do we need Dr. Phil for this?

Dr. Phil would say that we are clutching the yarn because of jealousy issues on our part (who wants to share a yarn with somebody else????) or commitment-phobia on the yarn's part. I think that Yarny is very flirty, batting its eyes at other knitters. Not good, not good...

Have you ever noticed that when you're knitting one project, the entire stash flirts with you and tempts you to start another project...and then another.

Yeah, that's how I'll explain it from now on. I think my husband will have me put away. LOL

Anna, wait til our husbands learn that we hear the yarn "talk" to us... Then we'll definitely be put away... in a nice white building with rocking chairs and a LOT of time to knit!

Imagine, here I find, up in the remote corner of a small store in a small town store, way up high, what appears to be same lot number from Lopi I bought 3 years earlier. I can now build on my family of sweaters and mittens and still use my stash with ease!

And of course, here's a "casual knitter" in my way (by my killer instinct assessing the situation) scoping it out. The clerk climed the ladder, extended her arm, and reached for my prize add-on lot. Dead, I say are my dreams. IN the parking lot, I will conduct a covert renegotiation. This CAN'T happen, not after 3 years and here I am 275 miles away from home seeing my prized fiber.

But, it has a happy ending....it was the lot to the right of mine that the other hunter was after! I literally RAN up the ladder while they went to the register and secured my prize. They also gave me a discount since it was discontinued...Never show your sweat through and over wool... : )

Doodletail, stories like yours warm the heart and remind us that at the end of every skein, a happy ending does exist!
