best days are yarn days

How I deal with having "too much yarn"
  • Me: Mom, I think I *may* have too much yarn.
  • Mom: Wow! I never thought you could have too much yarn.
  • Me: I know, I know, but I already have those four plastic tubs filled with yarn to the point that they won't close and then yarn elsewhere too. And I feel like asking for more space to store yarn would be kinda unreasonable.
  • Me: Mom, would you be interested in buying me yarn for mother's day?
  • Mom: I thought you said you have too much yarn.
  • Me: I have a coupon for 20% off my whole purchase.
  • Mom: [buys me yarn, including yarn to make her something]
  • Me: You are the best mom, happy mother's day.
  • [NEXT DAY]
  • Me: That yarn that we got for your shawl won't work.
  • Mom: Okay...what are you going to do?
  • Me: Buy more yarn.
