Top reasons to increase your yarn stash

I saw a list of the top 10 reasons to increase your yarn stash taped onto the window of my local yarn shop and I laughed when I read them. I also thought - "surely there are more than 10 reasons!". So I did a bit of a google search and found a whole forum on it on the Knitters Review website.

I have compiled a new list of no less than 40 good reasons for buying more yarn and increasing your stash.

See if you can think of some more. (like we need an excuse anyway to increase our stash!).

Top reasons to buy yarn:

1. Doesn’t have to be watered, fed, repotted or pruned.
2. Doesn’t have a shelf date.
3. Doesn’t need to be walked, groomed or fed. And it doesn’t shed…. Usually.
4. Doesn’t need a sitter when you go out. Or someone to watch it while you’re on vacation.
5. If it felts, you don't have to take it to the groomer
6. Doesn’t need its litter box changed.
7. It keeps without refrigeration; you don't have to cook it to enjoy it
8. Like dust, it's good for protecting previously unprotected spaces in the house.
9. it is cheaper than crack
10. You can have more than one WIP with out having to hide them from each other, unlike multiple boyfriends.
11. It insulates the house during winter when you line the walls with it
12. It fills your world with colour;
13. It doesn't require a prescription
14. Doesn't need its diaper changed and will never write on the walls.
15. Will never cost you tens of thousands of dollars in school tuition.
16. Does not date people you dislike just to spite you.
17. Has exactly the same taste in music you do, and will never turn off your stereo
18. It doesn't get jealous
19. It won't tell you how to cook

21. Cheaper than therapy (some with disagree with this one hehe)
22. Doesn't steal your seat when you stand up to fetch another ball.
23. It likes trying different things and hardly ever complains if you unravel it after spending hours knitting something.
24. It doesn't chew your computer cables.
25. Will never tell you your butt looks big or remind you that you have a pimple.

34. If the yarn you have isn't giving you what you need you can always get more, no long talks needed
35. It doesn't walk away when you're talking to it.
36. Doesn’t raise your blood pressure, or your bad cholesterol.
37. Never talks back or asks to use the car and then returns it with the tank on empty.
