Yarn Addict?

I wonder what really makes a yarn addict?  I’ve never applied the term to myself because I don’t go out and buy more and more yarn.  I need to plan a project before I’ll look around for new yarn and this year I’ve tried to start looking at what I already have first.

Maybe because I’m not buying yarn every single month (or twice a month) it’s opened new doors.  I can’t think of another reason why I love looking at pictures of yarn.  Yarn hanks are the best and I will look through knitting or spinning blogs just for a peek at some yarn pictures.  This is new.  I used to have very little interest in the pictures until there was knitting.  I needed to feel the yarn before I cared much of what it looked like unknitted.

I’m getting a little concerned. I look at these pics and I have no desire to obtain this yarn I’m looking at but simply enjoy looking.  It’s weird.  Isn’t it?

Tomorrow I have a mass yarn winding session planned so here are the pics of some of my yarn.  My own yarn pictures don’t really interest me so I guess I’m some sort of yarn peeping tom instead of a yarn addict?
