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!
- It insulates the closet where it is kept.
- It helps keep the economy going. It is our patriotic duty to support cotton farmers, shepherds, and textile mills.
- It is less expensive and more fun than psychiatric care.
- Because it is on sale.
- A sudden increase in the moth population might wipe out the wool crop for the next 10 years.
- I’m participating in a contest – the one who dies with the most wool wins.
- 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.
- 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.
- Because I’m worth it.
- Like dust, it’s good for protecting previously empty spaces in the house, like the ironing board, laundry hamper, dining room table…
- When the Big Earthquake comes, all the yarn shops might be swallowed into the ground and never be seen again.
- Stress from dealing with the Yarn Control Officer (my Husband[wife/ SO]) made me do it.
- It’s not immoral, illegal or fattening. It calms the nerves, gratifies the soul and makes me feel good.
- Buy it now, before your husband[wife/ SO] retires and goes with you on all your shopping expeditions.
- 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!
