Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn



Hey, Lexi here

I am the queen of procrastination, and that is no different now. At this moment I should be finishing up my room (aka mom’s future sewing room) so that is fully ready for when I leave tomorrow. Obviously, I am not doing this. Instead I am sitting here philosophizing about packing.

Why is it that you can pack the essentials so quickly but worry over the little things like books, jewelry, and yarn? For days, no weeks, I have had my clothes, towels, and other dorm essentials packed, yet I seem to be incapable of deciding whether or not to bring along Pride and Prejudice. I know I want the book, but do I really need the movie?

Then comes the true phenomenon. I am simply trying pack up the knitting projects I have in process (while some of them), but in doing so I discover bags of yarn that are practically begging to be knit. I know it can be mailed later, but I like the instant gratification of having the yarn at my fingertips.

Every single fiber of my being can’t wait until the packing and organizing is done. I just want to move in! From when I am writing this I have a little over two days before I can begin to move in, but not until I endure all the packing mayhem and the day of driving I am about to encounter. This better be worth it!

Mom, Are we there yet?

  1. Wow! It certainly is tough deciding what to take and what to leave behind. I certainly don’t envy your decisions!!! Good luck with it, it will all be here and over and you’ll be moved in before you know it!

  2. It sounds like a good start to being a typical woman over packer for life (speaking from experience). My answer is yes, you need it. I don’t even care what the question is 😀 Good luck with school .

  3. Okay, so I might be a senior in college instead of a freshman, but boy does that entry sound familiar. I’m moving out of my room into an off-campus apartment and my mom is taking over my bedroom to be her sewing/craft room/office. Yes, we both knit. Yes, I have pretty much decided that all yarn and all WIPs come with me.

    Speaking as someone who’s gone through this before, it’s so totally worth it.
