Chicks With Sticks will meet tonight at 6:30!

We need to be thinking about a road trip to Serendipity in Tuscaloosa! Dates for away games are as follows:
Sept. 23, Sept. 30, Oct. 21, Nov. 11

Please check your calendars and let me know ALL dates you are available....we will choose a date based on the majority.

Regarding the purchase of yarn......I have confessed being a yarn collector of gigantimous proportions....indeed have created SABLE......Stash Acquired Beyond Life Expectancy.....yet I lust.....I mean.....want more!!! I offer the following 12 step program to others.....in hopes that we may memorize these steps PRIOR to our roadtrip!! Disclaimer: This in no way is meant to make fun of anyone that may be involved in ANY 12 step program!! I have seen many different variations of the "12 step" program, including knitting and in fact stole this idea from someone else.....hmmm....may need to create one for "stealing"!! LOL!!

The 12 Steps of Yarn Collectors Anonymous

1. We admit we are powerless over yarn, that our yarn bins have become SABLE (Stash Acquired Beyond Life Expectancy), therefore we need to abstain from purchasing yarn until we have de-stashed.

2. We believe that only a power greater than ourselves can restore our sanity and allow us to knit from our stash before purchasing more yarn....and then for specific projects only.

3. We have made a decision NEVER to give up on yarn but to knit within the boundaries of our own personal yarn bins.

4. We have made a searching and fearless inventory of our yarn stash and acknowledge that "it is good".

5. We have admitted to our friends, spouse and most importantly to ourselves that our irrational desire for yarn, for MORE yarn is one that we will struggle with for the rest of our lives and must address on a daily basis!

6. We acknowledge that we are entirely ready to knit from our stash without a "war within"....to buy more yarn!

7. We humbly ask the yarn gods to keep our wool stash free of moths.

8. We will willing make a list of all projects we bought yarn for, or projects started and not finished....and do so solemnly vow to finish these projects before purchasing more yarn.

9. We vow to make direct amends to others (whenever possible)...to allow others to shop for yarn without our participation.

10. We vow to continually take "inventory" of our stash, reveling in the accomplishments of knitting from our stash and when we stumble and purchase more yarn we will promptly
