yarn fiber

Hey fiber artist

Knit a stitch, crochet a row, make just a little progress on your current project. If you don’t have a project find a pattern, even if it’s just to stare at it in longing. Just a little progress every day keeps your project from falling into dust and disinterest. 

I always joke that I ‘knit my feelings’. 

But the truth of it lies in the fact that while I won’t be able to work on my mental health I can still knit a few rows while laying in bed.

While I worry about drowning my feelings in alcohol if I can busy myself with a project.

I won’t spend money on a vice when I can spend it on yarn.

The joy I get from giving a gift to someone I love, who has sat with me when I have been sad, listen to me while I was mad, and helped me when I called, is the best thing I can do for myself.

And its the whole circle starting over again. They might need matching gloves.

Looking young in a yarn shop.

I wanted to see if anyone else has this problem. I am 24 but look much younger like I am in mid to late high school. When I go into many nice yarn shops they snub me, talk down to me, and assume I am not gonna drop bank on some nice ass yarn. I am always very polite and friendly. Mind this isn’t all yarn shops but many of them. I had a really bad experience with this one yarn shop in Fredrick MD yesterday and I am still miffed about how they treated me. I just want to know if anyone else experiences this?
