We recently had a slight flood in our basement, which is where my yarn closet is under the steps. A good bit of it is in plasic bins, but it has expanded and outgrown the bins and left in boxes and plastic bags. I am happy to say that I was able to save all but 4 balls of bernat boucle. I then went the next day to get more plastic bins. This is when I say that I should not buy anymore yarn until I use a good bit of what I have. There are about 11 good sized bins full, and well organized.
People look at me like I'm crazy when I tell them I have that much. Am I? Am I the only one with an obsession w/yarn? Is there anyone out there Iike me? I do use the stuff I have to make gifts and to sell. I just buy it because I can't pass up a really good deal (a bag of 10 of moda dea Dream for $5), or because it is just so pretty that I can already see it in a sweater for myself or for my kids (when does that ever happen that you get to make something for yourself?). I also buy too much sometimes because I'm not familiar w/the yarn and afraid of running out during a project. Better to have too much then to run out and not be able to find the same dye lot (been there, done that).
Am I crazy?
