YKYACW you get an ipod for Christmas and your first thought is not "cool, I can listen to lots of music on the go" but "I can totally crank out a Doctor Who themed ipod cozy...as soon as everyone's Christmas presents are done."

YKYACW you stay up until 3am 2 nights in a row browsing Harry Potter swaps from 4 years ago because that Slitherin scarf is finally finished!

YKYACW you lose power so you can't cook and have to order food, then you wonder why Joann's or any other craft store doesn't deliver because you need a hat!

when you buy a "learn to crochet" magasine even though you already crochet because it comes with 2 balls of yarn (always good) and a hook (i already have that size but this one is shiny) and there's a dvd to help you get started, which i may give to a friend
but YAY yarn
(my mother approves of my purpose as she's very proud of me for teaching myself but i might learn some new stitches, anyone think she's angling for crocheted gifts?)

YNYACW you're really excited about the prospect of having kids someday so you have a reason to make cute, tiny clothes, booties, blankets, plushes but also really upset about the idea of losing your craft room. Where would it all go?!

This magazine is now sold out everywhere near me, so I can't get it. I have been crocheting for over a year though, so I probably don't need it. I just want the yarn. Cheesy

i've been crocheting for around 15 years (bigods that makes me feel oooooooooold) and i'm getting it, yarn and hooks are good but the patterns are too (and it's teaching me brittish terminology so i actually know which stitches are which, instead of just fiddling till my work looks like the picture)
but yes
YKYACW you discover there's a yarn shop near you (has 2 branches, 2!) and try to work out if it's on a bus route and whether or not you can afford a trip there as they're having a yarn sale and while they may not carry the brand you need surely one of the ones on sale would be a good substitute

YKYAC when you want to help out other crafters..

I once subscribed to one of those craft part-works weekly things. And learned my lesson. They work out to be incredibly expensive.

The art of crochet is in 120 parts (!!) at either stg 2.99 per week or 4.99 euro (which is a rip off as at current rates of exchange it should be 3.33 euro) that is a total of 360 stg ($580) or 600 e (which is about $860!!) Having said that if you can score the loss leader first issue, it is a bargain.

I hate to be a party pooper, but that amount of money would buy you an awful lot of good quality wool and hooks and crochet books... and become a friend of craftster!

this is their website if you want to subscribe (if you subscribe they will automatically send you binders..at an additional charge!) http://www.theartofcrochet.com/home

They end up costing a fortune. its much cheaper and friendlier to learn on craftster.
