Crochet Quote

“It’s hard to accept the truth, but I have to admit it. Too much yarn is staring me right in the face and I have to do something about it! I can find some comfort in the fact that I am not alone in this. In fact, there is even a term for people who collect a lot of yarn. No, I’m not talking about “yarn hoarder,” although that must be a real thing, right? I’m talking about people who have reached SABLE, which stands for “Stash Acquisition Beyond Life Expectancy.” – @artlikebread on @crochetspot
