Yarn Junkie

Addiction is a terrible thing.

I've been making blankets lately - I've become obsessed.
Sister taught me to crochet; she does it when she's stressed.
I had never wanted to crochet; I'd rather read.
Sisters all insisted that I learn, so I agreed.

It's been nearly 3 months now and I'm in overdrive.
Started up a new one; this is blanket number 5.
First one that I made was for my darlin' Mr. S.
(Knots were very loose but - overall - 'twas a success.

He calls it his summer blanket.) Now I've got it right.
Since then I have started making all my knotting tight.
Good thing it's my knees and not my hands that have arthritis
Or this could get just as bad as Dr. Seussilitis.
