Yarn Sneak

I amaze myself. I devised a way to get more yarn into the house without feeling guilty for it. My family and friends even HELP me without knowing it. They give me canvas bags from conventions. They buy me bags for my birthday. I will share this secret way of not having to finish projects and buying new ones without the guilt. See those bags in the above picture? I just bought the black and pink polka dot one. Cute, huh? Well, that innocent bag is just waiting for a project that I don't want to finish or new project that I feel guilty having. I don't even have to HIDE the attractive ones. I simply have them here and there and they look like accessories. Mr. Yarn hardly even notices. Although he did mention to me as I was taking the above picture "you have more than THAT in the basement". Ok, so he is a little bit onto it, but he is pissed off about me buying the bags so he doesn't notice the yarn so much.

You can all use this idea and thank me later.

I couldn't agree more. I have bags in all sizes, colors, etc. and each one has a project in progress or one to start on.

I, too, am so proud of my kids. It is so wonderful to have them grown up and although I will always be their "mother", they are now my friends as well. I really enjoy their company.

My son and his wife took me out for brunch, and I am having dinner at my daughter's home today. What a happy mother's day it is.

okay...I love the polka-dot one. Where may I find one?

It by Lantern Moon and yarn shops sell them. I do.
