I'm a Wool-aholic

There.....I've said it out loud. I am a wool-aholic. They say that's the first step in dealing with an addiction. I CAN'T stop buying wool. Hmmm, I wonder if there is a 12 step program for that??

Today I told my friend Corinne I didn't think I could visit her for awhile. She just dyed some new colors and I can't look at them.
You see, I was at her house last week to buy 1 small piece of wool. (ONE) But I walk in and I see the large shelves on the wall, with ALL the pretty colors all lined up. I get all flustered, my eyes gloss over and I keep grabbing another piece and then another. Before I knew it I had 5 piles and I couldn't put any of them back. I should note here that I seem to have the same reaction at the car dealership. I go in with the plan to buy a sensible, reasonably priced car and then I spy some hot little number across the lot and its over!

And, god forbid if Sherri at Shabby Sheep posts that she is having a wool sale on etsy! I can't log in fast enough to see if she has anymore of that beautiful stained glass dye.

Whew! It feels good to come clean as an addict. I am NOT going to buy any more wool for awhile.....OK I can definately go 2 weeks. Thats the goal.

As you can probably tell, today was a better day!



  1. You are so funny, I love your Blog. I almost feel guilty when you come to visit I said you don't have to buy the wool I'm just showing you my new colors. You looked like you were having hot flashes with excitement (you had to be there).
    I have been looking at Skip to My Ewe's new colors and Island Sweet's yard and feeling the same way.

  2. Kim,
    Thank-you for your comments on my blog post! I was thinking of you when I wrote it too. I have a book that has been a huge comfort for me. I will blog about it when I get a chance to post again. Maybe you already have it. The name of the book is: Daily Comforts for Caregivers by Pat Samples. It's a wonderful little book with a reading for each day. Loved your post about the wool buying! Oh man I have been there too! Take Care.......Cathy
