I realized today when I was making another yarn purchase that there is something very therapeutic about yarn. Going through row after row of yarn, feeling it, all the colors and textures are so hypnotic. It's so relaxing.
Another great pleasure from yarn shopping is how it inspires creativity. At those moments when your eyes see that skein you have to have suddenly your mind is filled with all the possibilities. At that time, nothing else matters, there is no stress, there are no hounding problems, the moment is full of the excitement of potential. That is a great medicine.
