The Twelve Steps for Yarnoholics

Step One: 

'We admitted we were powerless over yarn - that our stashes had become unmanageable."

Step Two: 

'Came to believe that a Creative Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.'

Step Three: 

'Made a decision to turn our creativity and our stashes over to the care of this Creative Power as we understood Him.

Step Four: 

'Made a searching and fearless inventory of our yarn supply.'

Step Five: 

'Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another yarnoholic the exact quantity of our stash.'

Step Six: 

'Were entirely ready to have God reduce this stash to a reasonable amount.'

Step Seven: 

'Humbly asked Him to remove our excess.'

Step Eight: 

'Made a list of all projects we haven't finished, and became willing to finish them before starting another.'

Step Nine: 

'Made direct alterations to such projects wherever possible, except when to do so would involve ripping them out.'

Step Ten: 

'Continued to take yarn stash inventory and when we were wrong promptly returned the newly acquired yarn.'

Step Eleven: 

'Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with Our Creative Power as we understood him, buying only yarn that He wills for us and power to carry that out.'

Step Twelve: 

'Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other yarnoholics, and to practice these principles in all our projects.'

Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity to dispose of the yarn I cannot use,

Storage for the yarn I can,

And wisdom to know the difference.
