Why do I keep getting into hobbies where it's easy to stockpile things? Things that take up space? I should seriously learn to collect lint balls or something. o.O

I use my leftover yarn to make little afghans for homeless dogs. They don't care what color they are. lol

That's a great idea, DQ! Except I'd never get around to actually making the little blankets. I'm so bad that way.

One way to keep from having a huge stash of yarn is being a bit of a yarn snob. The yarn I <3 the most cost around $20 a hank or more (or less if I'm lucky!).

Hey, that's a good strategy. I should try it. I'm broke anyway, spent it all on fish. >.<

I have some beautiful sock yarn, but I hate wearing knit socks, so I have to find something to make with it.
