You Know You're a Crazy Crafter When...

You know you're completely crazy for your craft when you...

Manage to find materials, even when you told yourself you weren't going to start a new project on trip, end up spinning 5 ounces of wool in your hotel room, and finishing the skein in your bathtub:
Take a shuttle to an awesome yarn store, happen across a bead store, and an art store, then walk 15 blocks in freezing cold weather to get to ANOTHER super awesome fabric and yarn store (because 1 is never enough):

In the end, I have blisters on all my toes, my legs hurt, I'm tired, but blissfully happy watching the snow fall as I knit and spin up a storm:

Here's to the insanity of crafting!

Your tub yarn is beautiful. Love the color.
Clever weight for the yarn in the tub. Enjoy the evening.

Yeap, deafinitely signs of a cracy crafter. Wonder what the hotel maid thought?

But, when the creative bug strikes, you need to follow it...and I look forward to seeing what you create with this. I'm sure it will be beautiful.

Leah, I do most of my crochet projects when my husband and I go on a trip, sadly I sometimes have UFOs and it requires me to find another long driving trip for us so I can finish my project :)
