Just Call Me Crack Whore

Well, OK, don’t, because I’ll probably slap you.

GAH – Stop muttering about me contradicting myself and pay attention!

I found an Australian site called EcoYarns.

While the customer service (answering emails, and the like) seems a little lacking, the products have me, ummm, drooling.

The compulsive knitters among us are bound to agree – beautiful yarns are like crack. Addictive. Seductive. Alluring as all get-out. Right, Bells? 😀

I don’t know about others, but I look at a yarn and I see something I could knit with it. I look at organic undyed naturally coloured peruvian baby alpaca yarn and I think – “ZOMG! Bubba Boy needs a blanket in that stuff. It would keep him all warm and fuzzy and feeling treasured for years!”

(errr, ignore the mother-guilt implicit in that thought, k?)

Ye gads, I had a point, I’m sure of it!

Oh yeah. Crack whore!

I got my first order a couple of days ago, and I am thoroughly, hopelessly hooked. I’ve almost completed an entire sleeve of a jumper (sweater) whose pattern resides solely in my head. The yarn is red and black dyed soysilk/wool and it’s beautifully soft. *happy sigh* I have about 5 projects waiting for me in this order, and I’m still looking at the site and thinking about other stuff I could buy.

See? I’m thoroughly addicted. And I’m happy about it.

    Spotted some new mixed product yarn in my local craft store and began to go weak at the knees….despite the price tag of $15 per 30 gram ball!
    Is beautiful, really, like feathers and silk and baby bum softness…..

  3. this is an addiction I thoroughly support. Get all that you can!

  4. better addiction than many others I could name.
