great skiens of yarn!

dear god,


today i discovered heaven. yarn heaven. it was beautiful. so incredibly beautiful. please send me lots of cash so i can return to yarn heaven many times. it would be very awesome of you. thanks.


love,


michelle




a bit much you say? well - then you've never been to yarn heaven. up until this point in my knitting/crocheting adventures i've stuck to the basics - michael's and joann's. they've been wonderful for someone with a yarn addiction on a budget. today however - i let myself wonder into the local (non-chain)
yarn store and well....it was heaven.


shelves upon glorious shelves of glorious marvelous yarn! tons of cute storage containers for all your supplies! i fell in love (if you couldn't tell). i managed to only let myself leave with enough yarn for a current project i'm working on - but it was tough. i could see myself going into some serious debt there (which needs to not happen...must save money not spend money!)



so yeah - that's my story for the day. i fell in love with yarn heaven. oh - and isn't the picture below a cool idea? i'd love to have a craft room and do something like this....





p.s. i'm currently accepting donations to support my addiction. please and thank you.

p.p.s. i have a few posts from the past week(end) to actually post...hopefully i'll get around to it soon....

I actually really have to stay out of yarn stores because I cannot control myself and the owners don't like it when you drool on product.

I'm like that in a good fabric store too.

uh oh. you shouldn't have told me this place existed. the only other one i knew of on the east side was up in WBL and i'm avoiding it b/c i can't afford to let my mind and eyes wander!

carrie: i know! i had a really hard time controlling myself in there last night....

holly: sorry! but hey - if you're ever free on a Friday night from 7-9 you can go there and knit and crochet with other people. I might check it out sometime if you'd like to go with me :)
