Default Yarnaholics Anonymous   #1  
Hi. My name is Kaderin and I am a Yarnaholic. I have more yarn than I'll probably ever use in a lifetime, but every time I walk into a store with yarn, I want more. I try to justify my purchases by buying multiple skeins in the same color for "a blanket" or "a hat and scarf set" but I never make those things. I just want to hoard the pretty yarns. My friends don't help either. They encourage me to buy yarn or they show me pictures of pretty yarns I don't have, which only makes me want to buy more!
Help!
XD
Although, I have been really good. I have resisted the urge to buy yarn from my favorite online store despite them having their big yarn sale last week (ends today), even though some of my favorite yarns were 50-60% off...

I totally know the feeling. That stuff is dangerously addictive. XD I have buckets full of crafting supplies.

Lol.
You guys are great!

Boris: I do actually have 3 blankets, 1 stuffed fox, and 3 scarves in progress. With one more fox I need to start once I empty the loom in use.
I actually should get up and work on the mermaid blanket before work. It's pretty close to done and I want to finish it soon.

When I am in the mood to crochet I always want yarn. I've so far made 4 twin sized afghans. Two went to friends and the other two I kept. I've made a few scarves a few hats. One scarf my guinea pig loves to cuddle with, so it's hers now.I have made my own messenger bag too. I used the colors of Twilight Sparkle from My Little Pony. I used plastic sheets between layers of yarn and cloth lining to keep it upright and velcro to keep it closed, and Twilight's cutie mark in felt sewn on the front flap. I haven't done much in the way of non-wearable things, like stuffed animals or anything though. Though I did knit pieces for a My Little Pony doll and sewed it all together when I first learned to knit. I prefer crochet though.

I really do need to pick back up on crochet. I do loom knitting, which is nice because I don't lose my place on big projects if I forget about them for months...
I tend to only work on projects if I legitimately have a strict deadline or of I feel like it. Unfortunately, I have been really tired lately and just haven't been as motivated to work on stuff...
I do have a lot of yarn that I bought specifically for blankets, but I need to free up some looms. And also decide if I want to do a fancy stitch pattern or not.

I'll dig through my images after the boss leaves work and see what I have uploaded for recent things...I think, other than stuffed animals, my last finished projects were christmas presents for last year.

That's pretty adorable!
I haven't been brave enough to attempt a bag yet.

Haha, thanks. Most of the stuff I make is generally pretty simple. But apparently over the last 12 months, I've been doing more complex stuff. XD
The scale gloves/gauntlets are actually pretty easy, though a bit time consuming to make, and not exactly cheap either.
If I can afford it and it won't weigh too much, I actually want to try making a scaled weighted blanket next year. I need to find an appropriate garter stitch blanket pattern and factors in extra rows for trim to keep the scales away from skin, then I can do math to calculate quantity of scales I'll need and how much they'll weigh.

Sheesh that was like.. a couple years ago. I stopped using mine cus it *does* have a flaw. It tends to get flipped over occasionally and when it does things can fall out. I actually lost my wallet cus if that X_X. But I think with more tweaking it could actually work well as a bag.
