I have a tendency to get pretty obsessive about things like squash (the sport, not the veg), mad men (which is coming back in the Summer!!), James Baldwin, blueberries, baking (when I have an actual kitchen), sex and the city (I just started watching the show last year and have already bought every single season ... it's sick I tell you!), and now ... crochet. I am totally hooked, literally! har har.

I cannot stop crocheting. Nothing can pull me away. The president's speech? I listened, but my eyes did not leave my crochet needle and yarn. Chris trying to talk to me? I'm sure he was annoyed because I was responding with very distracted uh huh's. Bed time? I brought my needle into bed with me and in my head kept thinking ... just one more row, one more row.

Yesterday, my obsession went to the next level: purchasing quality yarn. Right now I had bummed a needle off one of my coworkers and another coworker donated some old acrylic yarn she had bought years ago. Now I must have actual, wearable, 100% organic cotton yarn. Check these beauties out!

That last one I got in a cream color, not lime green. I'm very excited!!! I can't wait until they come in the mail along with my set of 5 crochet needles. YESSSSSS!
