Yes- Yarnbombs and Obsession. I do love everything about yarnbombing.
When I am interested in something I do it very intensely. I live by these 3 quotes ;
1. You can’t spend too much on art materials.
2. If a little of something is good, more is better.
3. It never hurts to be enthusiastic!
I’ve actually already been through one round already of obsessing about knitting and spinning in which I recklessly bought needles, spindles, spinning wheel and yarn. I spend 10,000 dollars on knitting stuff that year, I seem to recall. There-now don’t you feel better ?
I love the process of being bad at something and steadily getting better. Many people hate the being bad to start so much that they don’t want to learn new skills. But you can’t get better if you don’t start kind of bad.
Ok- So obsession. If you adore something and do it gleefully all the time is it obsession? Or addition? Or passion? I’ve always wanted to spend almost all my time making art. I do get anxious and whiny if I don’t get to knit and spin, so maybe it is an addiction.
I would like to mention that besides yarnbombing I am also obsessed with Lindt dark chocolate with a hint of sea salt, Project Runway , Jim Butcher ‘s Harry Dresden novels,the chocolate covered almonds at The Cheeseboard, Squeak Carnwath, chocolate pudding, yoga and Frank Stella.
I can’t wait to get up in the morning.
