DH found yet another box of my yarn and started going through the house looking for yarn. He found boxes of yarn and knitting supplies and was a bit peeved. He thinks I buy yarn to just buy yarn. (Well, sometimes I do - one never knows when moss green nubby yarn will be needed.) I tried to explain to him that this is par for the course. He didn’t believe me. He read some of the posts on this site. (I told him about the yarn porn.) He was perplexed. DH is a mechanical engineer. CREATIVITY is NOT in his vocabulary. He said that we knitters needed a 12-step program.
I told him that yarn and knitting are my therapy sessions once a week. It costs much less than a session with a therapist at $350/hr. He gave me a crooked grin and walked away saying, “It’s a good thing I love you so much.”
I think we must educate these ‘non-knitters.’ I mean really - who could pass up 10 skeins of alpaca for $10? That WOULD be crazy!
