1,648 balls of yarn on the wall....

I'm on a self imposed work of UFO's week while waiting for Ravelry to finally accept me (I feel like I'm in high school) and then those pesky UFO's can bugger off and leave me alone to browse and find a few thousand more projects to cast on.

I was watching Grey's Anatomy the other day and they were talking about Dr. Mark Sloan and that his name was Man Whore. It popped into my mind that my title should be "Yarn Whore" because I promiscuously cast aside my projects for the sleek lines of a new project or the full and juicy balls of yarn. I've also been known to simply be disloyal to a project simply because I want to play with some new sticks. (Okay, now I'm getting carried away). I apparently was not in line for the Fidelity Gene when it came to yarn.

It bothers me that I'm not more loyal and devout in my fiber relationships. And so, I am working on this character flaw. Well, at least for the next couple of days.

Good! Just two days, right? Because we'll miss you ;-)

1,648 balls! That's only a couple short of 165 bags. I'm nearly sure I've got you beat and I'm not even counting the numerous half pound skeins I have of handpainted yarn. And I just bought 48 balls, was given 2 and am thinking of buying 20 more.

Feel better?

I'm not even going to go there but I had way more yarn than I thought when I put it all into the three bins and didnt' have enough room. Now I just think "a lot". I have a lot.

Promiscuity is good when you have a harem. It's practically required. Think of all those neglected skeins of yarn, gossiping, fighting, getting would just be chaos if you tried monogamy.

I agree with Carrie K...think of it as having a haram...I like that idea...actually I should get back to mine...Just knit away, all the projects will get done eventually.
