"My name is Anna, and I'm Addicted to Yarn"
I love yarn. I can't visit a store that carries yarn without stopping in that department to pet the yarn. Yes, I pet the yarn. I'm drawn to yarn by the colors but then I've got to to touch every skein, cake or hank that I see. I then have to purchase at least some of it, usually way more then I need for my next project. This probably makes me a bit of a yarn hoarder. But my yarn is not hid away in a pile somewhere, I have each one bagged in clear poly bags and stacked neatly on an endless number of shelves taking up every inch of wall space in my craft room, displayed so that I can see them and be inspired.
I don't really just hoard the yarn, I use it too. I have at least 5 WIP's (works in progress) going at any given moment. I make lots of personal items for myself and gifts for my grandchildren and friends, and in between every personal item I make, I also make one child's blanket that I donate to a local organization that works with abused & neglected children in trauma. For this reason, when I see pretty yarn that would make a nice child's blanket I tend to buy a ton of it. I can't possibly use all of the yarn I buy because I don't have that much lifetime left, ha ha, but I can't seem to stop myself.
So.....I opened this yarn shop to help me share some of this beautiful yarn that I couldn't seem to stop myself from buying when I fall in love with it. I love that my new occupation of being an official yarn retailer allows me to be around yarn all day. I stock yarns from many different manufacturers and even crochet hooks and supplies. So please shop around and know that 90% of the yarn that I have available for sale was once a yarn that inspired me to make a blanket for a child in need of a little kindness from a stranger.
