Why You NEED Yarn

A great member of the International Free Form Crochet Guild posted a recent list justifying why you need to purchase yarn. Well, it was so great, I had to post it here! Enjoy!

  1. It insulates the closet where it is kept.
  2. It helps keep the economy going. It is our patriotic duty to support cotton farmers, shepherds, and textile mills.
  3. It is less expensive and more fun than psychiatric care.
  4. Because it is on sale.
  5. A sudden increase in the moth population might wipe out the wool crop for the next 10 years.
  6. I’m participating in a contest – the one who dies with the most wool wins.
  7. It keeps without refrigeration; you don’t have to cook it to enjoy it; you never have to feed it, change it, wipe its nose or walk it.
  8. I need extra weight in the trunk of my car for traction on snowy, icy roads. This is important even in Florida or California – you never know when the weather will change.
  9. Because I’m worth it.
  10. Like dust, it’s good for protecting previously empty spaces in the house, like the ironing board, laundry hamper, dining room table…
  11. When the Big Earthquake comes, all the yarn shops might be swallowed into the ground and never be seen again.
  12. Stress from dealing with the Yarn Control Officer (my Husband[wife/ SO]) made me do it.
  13. It’s not immoral, illegal or fattening. It calms the nerves, gratifies the soul and makes me feel good.
  14. Buy it now, before your husband[wife/ SO] retires and goes with you on all your shopping expeditions.
  15. An ounce a day is all the yarn shops of America/Canada/ Europe/Aussie/ Asia ask.

So the next time you SO asks why you purchase so much yarn, you are armed with multiple answers!
