Do you ever have a yarn that you love so much you can't decide what to do with it?
It just sits in your stash taunting you with its awesome-ness!
I'm having this problem with two yarns right now. I just can't make a decision!

YES! I do that a lot. It's like, I don't want to make anything less than perfect for it, so I keep it for months/years. I had a couple of balls of cotton ease in blue that finally just came out of a coma to become the lace cami from Vintage Knits.

And then...when I've found the perfect project, I want more....and by that time I can't find the original yarn anymore. boo hoo.

So true!
I have one skein of brown baby alpaca and I just can't decide what to do with it. I don't know why I like it so much--I just do. It is so soft, but I don't want to use it for anything that could end up taking more than one skein.

all the time!!  Grin

And then, I order myself to never buy yarn w/o a project in mind to prevent this... and then I go to my LYS, and come home with even more yarn!  Oy.  Heck, I even beg my friends and family to try and stop me from doing this, and they're horrid!  They *encourage* my habit... they're enablers or something - "you could make a hat with this!"  or "wouldn't this make a wonderful sweater?"

I'm convinced that keeping yarn in a vegetative state is all part of being a knitting addict.

A word of caution, it''ll only become worse if you learn to spin.  I have tons of wool and yarn I'm indecisive about right now.

I have a pile of "perfect" projects waiting to happen.  It's called my yarn stash.  Smiley
I have a horrific habit of buying yarn for one project and then using it for another.  Take for example.. the lovely sirdar nova lilac wool which I bought thinking..

"Oo that'll make a nice cardigan"

Which now seems to have semi-turned into socks and will probably end up being a few hats.  Whoops.
