Some people love shopping for clothes and shoes. Others like grocery shopping. Me, I love craft and yarn stores. I love walking up and down the aisles, feeling the yarn, touching the material, looking at patterns, just staring at all the possibilities. Time gets away and I can’t figure out where it went.
I’m lucky. My family may not understand, but they humor me by allowing me all the time I need. They also enjoy receiving the end results derived from those shopping trips.
I’m not sure which I enjoy more; the planning and shopping for the next project, actually making the project, the satisfaction I get when the project is completed, or seeing my work appreciated by others.
I’m not an online shopper because I can’t tough and feel the products. But, I sure love looking! I love looking at all the new items coming out, reading about the different types of yarns and seeing what others have done with it. I especially love admiring all the different ways crafters can make the same project, getting ideas from them, then planning and shopping for my next project.
