Top 10 Signs You’re a JSYarnie:

Ten Stitch Blanket

10. You buy yarn for yarn’s sake and “figure out what to do with it later.”

9. You find artful ways to display yarn in your home because you have to put it somewhere.

8. You have nightmares about your stash smothering you in your sleep.

7. You carry on conversations with your yarn stash. For example, you have found yourself saying at least one of the following–aloud–to your fiber collection:

  • “Stay!”
  • “That’s enough now.”
  • “Here’s a pretty new friend.” (in the voice of Hannibal Lecter)
  • “Don’t you split on me!”
  • “No! You cannot have your own room.”

6. You approach perfect strangers with a ball of yarn and demand that they, “Feel this!”

5. You can–and will–give spontaneous lectures on the merits of pure wool versus blends.

4. You are adamant about dye-lot consistency. You know what “dye-lot consistency” means.

3. You experience yarn envy…often.

2. You have strong feelings about acrylic fiber.

  1. Yarn must never–EVER–be thrown out. You cannot bear the thought of the smallest scrap going to waste.

While extensive counseling may be required to manage your relationship with your stash, we at JenningStreet Yarns are happy to help you use up (almost) every last bit of your odd-balls and leftovers. Bring them all to the Ten Stitch Blanket class. Swap with other StashBusters to give your blanket flair and your stash orphans a new home.
