My name is Annette and I am addicted to yarn. And knitting. And anything related to the two...magazines, pattern books, classes, yarn stores in any and every city, websites, designers, and people of a kindred spirit who understand this addiction firsthand.

It was the yarn that drew me in. When I was in college I had a summer job around the corner from a yarn store. I passed by the store as I walked to and from work. At first, I simply admired the yarn displayed in the window as I passed by. Then I actually stopped and looked at the display, stealing a peek at the cubbies filled with fiber inside. Eventually, the yarn lured me inside and I began fondling. That was it. I was hooked.

So. Is it (a) a problem that needs to be cured? Or (b) a highly attractive personality trait? I'm a perpetual optimist, so I'm going to go with 'b'.

B. Definitely B.

Horray!! You have a blog. Groovy.

I love your story of how you came to know and love the yarn. You were lured by the pretty!

Welcome!! Definitely, B is the choice. I don't think a cure is possible--I've been a yarn addict since I was oh, about 10, used to go fondle the yarns and embroidery threads at the local dime store. Now I have way more yarn than they ever carried! Love your picture--is that part of your stash??

Welcome to blog land! I 3rd B, otherwise we're all in a lot of trouble.

Now I have another way to keep track of another of my SnB friends after I move.

Hello, Annette. Glad to see you in blogland. :)

I'm going with B, too. Absolutely nothing wrong with a little (heh heh) - okay, a lot of - yarn around the house.

Yummy photo!
