I never bought yarn that I didn't have a project for.
I never started a project before I finished the last one.
I never started a project without even having a pattern.
I never would have paid $8+ for a skein of yarn.
I never thought obsessively about buying more knitting accessories.
I never used to think, oh I'll just browse "friend's activity" on ravelry thinking oh that's pretty.
I NEVER put a project in a bag in the corner and thought someday I'll finish that (or maybe not)!
I would never have texted (repeatedly) someone to get a recommendation for a yarn type and then obsessed about the color of yarn, and do they have a heathered one?
