as well as some of my other artistic endeavours, I'm a knitter
but knitting's trendy now - so I have no shame in admitting to it; as a knitter, I have a stash of yarnI used to be obsessed with adding to it. . . everywhere I went I would search out wool shops
(unlike Wallace, it never lead to love)
I'd buy yarn, yarn and more yarn. . .I'd buy needles, needles and more needles. . .
I'd have my favourite yarns that I'd want to buy more of. . .
if you're a knitter, or indeed any kind of collector (or obsessive) you'll understand this
(you do understand this, don't you?) (if not, it's a tad tricky to explain!)
dear reader, you know how my circumstances have changed in the last couple of years. . . I accept and take responsibility for where I am, here and now; I know that I no longer have the funds to add to my collection of yarn and needles
despite credit crunch and/or
change in personal circumstances. . .
I have my stash!!
